Conference Session Formats:
Sessions will vary in structure to provide a robust conference experience for presenters and participants. Presenters are asked to identify their preferred format in their proposal; however, proposal reviewers may suggest alternative formats and/or the combination of like topics for shared concurrent sessions.
1. Concurrent Presentations
Concurrent Presentations and Shared Concurrent Presentations are sessions that present research, theory, concepts, and practices. This track welcomes papers that are fully completed research papers for stand up presentations. Concurrent sessions are 20 minutes long and consist of either one presentation for the full 20 minutes, or in shared sessions, two presentations. Submissions are required to be either conceptually- or empirically-based. Conceptually-based papers seek to develop a fuller understanding of education by building on existing knowledge. Empirically-based papers are original research to test or develop a theory or make a new contribution to the knowledge base of the field.
2. Poster Presentations
Poster Presentations provide an opportunity to present and discuss one main research theme, program, practice, or relevant topic in an informal setting, somewhat like an exhibit hall or information fair. The poster session submission includes: (1) significance of the study, (2) literature review, (3) proposed methodology, and (4) implication/application for education. A good poster session centers on one main theme presents useful information and stimulates discussion. The recommended poster size is 36” tall x 48” wide. (90cm tall 120cm wide).

3. Roundtable Discussions
Roundtables create opportunities for small groups to engage in discussion about a particular educational topic. Generally, these sessions consist of 6-12 people and are held at large, conference round tables. The proposal must include a list of 2-3 clearly stated discussion questions to encourage participation among the audience. Please note that several roundtable discussions happen simultaneously in the same, large room, so formal presentations using slides and/or other support media are not possible.
4. Symposium Presentations
Symposium presentations are formal presentations on an educational topic. Typically conducted in presentation format, these are used generally to report interesting initial findings from a research project. Since these sessions are not blind-reviewed, they are not designed for complete research projects.
