Presentation Formats

All sessions are 60 minutes.  We recommend content taking up approximately 45 minutes and allowing 15 minutes for Q&A.

Traditional Session

Typically includes 1 lead presenter (possibly with a co-presenter) demonstrating, lecturing, or speaking on an idea or topic.  This type of session often includes multiple types of audiovisual techniques and learning aides.

Panel Session

Typically includes a group of 3 or 4 people who present aspects of a topic, with each panelist speaking from their experiences or interests. If you are submitting a proposal for a panel presentation, the maximum number of panelists is 4, plus a moderator.

Roundtable Discussions

Presenters should guide the discussion topics with an end goal of identifying and sharing best practices. Roundtable presentations vary, but typically include a brief introductory presentation, followed by discussion and feedback. Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and in-depth discussion on a topic.
