Session Type Description

 

Information Session

 

Give a 50 minute presentation in which you share information related to one of the learning tracks. Each 50 minute presentation should include 5-10 minutes for questions, answers, and discussion with the audience.  

Extended Information Session

Give a 110  minute presentation or panel discussion in which you share information related to one of the learning tracks. Each 110 minute presentation should include 10-15 minutes for questions, answers and discussion with the audience. This format also provides an opportunity for panels (3-5 people, including the facilitator) to present their views or results on a common theme, issue, or question and discuss them with the audience.

Poster Session

Design a poster to share the main points of your research results or program related to a learning track. You will participate in a display of your electronic poster for one 90-minute session dedicated to poster presentations only. Poster presentations provide the opportunity for you to both expand your audience and interact individually with interested viewers. We will provide a small table for your laptop and power to the table, but there will be no display boards.

Workshop Design an interactive group session related to a specific area of focus that will provide tangible "take-away" information and engage the audience for a 90 minute or 3 hour (180 minutes plus a 30 minute break) session, depending on the length needed for the workshop.  Each workshop session should include time for questions, answers, and discussion with the audience.  Final determination of workshop length will be made by the program chair.
