Session Types

  • Pre-Conference Workshop: This new session format is available as part of the pre-conference. Workshops give you the opportunity to spend more time with your participants, allowing you to dig deeper into a particular topic or tool. Workshop proposals can fit into either 90-minute or three-hour time slots and should be highly interactive, with the goal of engaging participants through structured activities.
  • Interactive Presentation: These sessions include 25 minutes of presentation time and 10 minutes for audience engagement or interaction, for a total of 35 minutes. Interactive presentations are opportunities to present in detail on a project while enabling audience participation.
  • Panel: These 35-minute facilitated conversations among panelists and the audience should focus on an issue, challenge, or idea pertinent to teaching and learning. Moderators should present a few key points to lead the discussion on this topic. The proposal should include the topic and engaging questions for discussion. List your panel moderator as the primary presenter.
  • Poster Session: These physical or digital poster sessions offer the opportunity to share campus experiences through informal, brief presentations focused on effective practices, research findings, educational technology solutions, or works in progress.
  • Other: Do you have an innovative idea for a session that doesn’t quite fit one of the formats listed here? We’d like to hear about it! Please be as clear as possible about your idea and the suggested format, including time and any space considerations.
