Dear Stephanie,

Thanks for your proposal! Please edit your proposal and add additional language that will provide more details about your presentation. This will help potential attendees understand more about your work. What are the goals of your presentation? What do you hope attendees will come away with? Take a look at our accepted proposals thus far and see if you can clarify your original proposal.

Conference Co-Chair

Thank you. I have edited my proposal. 

Hi Stephanie,

We need to see more details regarding your presentation. The full description could benefit from additional information. The more developed your presentation, the more likely attendees will opt to attend your session. For example, you could describe your school's accomplishments in relation to global projects, make references to the SDGs if these goals were incorporated into your projects, mention a PBL framework that you've found helpful or add any links that might give a fuller picture of what you hope to share. 

I recommend that you edit the phrase "Discussion on PBL with a global integration"and make it a full sentence.  Spell out acronyms as some attendees from other countries may not be familiar with PBL or the acronyms of your school. 

Your proposal is almost ready to be approve!
