Conference Format

The concurrent sessions will be a combination of a variety of formats.

Whole Session Panels: Three to four presentations of 15-20 minutes per presentation coordinated around a central theme. The panel must be designed to allow at least 15 minutes of discussion and audience response.

Individual Presentations: Individual submissions delivered in 15-20 minutes will be combined into a panel of three to four presents by the Program Chair.

Roundtable: Designed around a specific theme, three to four presenters briefly address a central issue or question followed by audience participation. These sessions should be highly interactive.

Workshops: (75-minute sessions) Highly interactive, these sessions provide participants a chance to share knowledge and experience around specific topics and new developments in the field. While guiding discussion and providing expertise, workshop leaders need to actively involve the audience and allow for their contributions to the discussions.

Lightning Talks: Presenters offer five-minute presentations on research interests and ideas; participants then join presenters in break-out sessions for discussion These presentations can be communicated from “Scholar to Scholar,” “Tutor to Tutor,” or “Administrator to Administrator.” Note: Please limit supplemental materials to the overhead projector and /or handouts.

Posters: Presenters display posters that inform viewers about a specific topic. During a dedicated time and space, presenters will be scheduled to explain and discuss their topic with conference attendees. Text and graphics should be legible from a distance of 4-6 feet. You will have a table on which to display your work.

Performance: Alternative depictions of research using music, art, dance, film or other media.
