SESSION FORMAT

Presentation Session: 45 minutes
Presentation Sessions are focused, interactive sessions with clear objectives and learning outcomes for the participants. Presentation sessions typically include a combination of lecture, visual aids, and exercises promoting interaction with participants.

Conference Session: 20 minutes
A traditional conference session presentation. Presentations of teaching or research ideas in progress or final project reports are two examples of appropriate submissions for this category; these sessions are encouraged to submit their work to the Proceedings of the STEM Teaching and Learning Conference. Papers presented at the conference are eligible to be submitted to the second annual Proceedings of the Interdisciplinary STEM Teaching and Learning Conference. All manuscripts submitted will undergo a double blind review process.

Workshop: 90 minutes
A workshop contains a great degree of attendee participation, interaction, and hands-on exercises, where participants both practice and learn the knowledge and skills that is the workshop’s focus. Workshops tend to be smaller and more intense than seminars and typically involve participants doing work on a particular issue during the program. The promise is that when they leave, they’ll have at least a rough plan or tools in place to address the challenge.

Poster Session: 90 minutes – Thursday Evening Only
Posters will be set up and be available for viewing during the conference. At the designated poster session, the presenters need to be with their posters to discuss them with people examining the posters.
