Thank you for contributing your time and knowledge to crafting a proposal for consideration for the Spring 2020 STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice Convening.

Bi-annual SLECoP Convenings are opportunities for SLECoP peers to network, share best practices, and brainstorm solutions to common challenges. These convenings are also an opportunity for expert guests to present to the SLECoP on special topics of interest.
Each convening, the SLECoP takes a deep dive into a topic and this convening we are focusing on: INVENTION, INNOVATION, ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN PREPARING FOR FUTURE ECONOMIES. Special preference will be given to proposals that address any part of or all of this topic.
E2E (Ecosystem to Ecosystem) sessions are a platform to bring forward topics of interest and share your expertise. Surveys from past SLECoP convenings indicate that attendees prefer sessions that:
**Focus on strategies for overcoming challenges – failures often offer valuable insights!
**Showcase different models to approach one area of work (e.g., several approaches to shared measurement, etc.)
**Focus on techniques to cultivate effective partnerships (work toward a shared vision, common measurement metrics, consistent and trusted communication)
**Highlight strategies to grow and sustain STEM Learning Ecosystems (e.g. managing steering committees; effective organizational features; collaborative grants, etc.)
**Review innovative programs that could be replicated in other regions
