Big Idea Lab


Big Idea Lab 2018 v.2

Big Idea Lab

OCALICON is built from high-quality sessions presented and facilitated by some of the nation's leading thinkers, experts, researchers, practitioners, parents/family members, and more.

One big idea can be the spark that catches fire in a room filled with thoughtful and energized participants. But what's the best way to frame and structure such an idea – and then communicate it with your colleagues and peers?

The Big Idea Lab provides OCALICON presenters with suggestions and guidance to help promote, create, and ultimately facilitate meaningful, effective, and impactful sessions. Use the lab's resources to take your ideas and content to the next level.
