PRESENTATION TYPES

  • Paper Presentation: 30 minutes, which must include at least five minutes for questions/discussion/reflection

These are academic or research-informed papers reporting on scholarly work or work arising from systematic inquiry.  Authors present summaries or overviews of their complete paper, describing the essential features (purpose, procedures, and outcome, product, or results) of their work. 

  • Workshop/Interactive Presentation:  60 minutes, which must include at least 15 minutes for questions/reflection/hands-on component

A workshop, panel session or debate.  This session, which presents classroom-based work, involves substantial interaction with the audience.  It must not simply be a long paper presentation.  

  • World Café: 60 minutes

Proposals are invited for the hosting of a World Café (or a variation of the World Café format). 

For a World Café session, a room is set up like a café, with participants sitting in groups of four or five at different tables, for deeply participative, high-quality professional conversations.  Participants are guided by table hosts to move to new tables as part of a series of conversational rounds focusing on questions that matter to them. With each move, a table host remains behind, sharing the essence of the table’s conversation.  The others separate and move to new tables to consider a new question and connect to what other tables have talked about – in this way networking and cross-pollinating the conversations.

As part of the proposal, please indicate a possible theme or themes and details of the format (including specific timings) of your suggested World Café event.
