Presentation Formats

Roundtables (45 minutes):
Sessions led by individuals (or teams) who have either completed research, have research in progress or want to showcase ground-breaking resource developments. The format for these sessions is for presenters to offer information, data, resources etc for discussion/ challenge from those at the table. There will be no more than 10-12 participants at each table, and it is envisaged  that a brief introduction will be followed by discussion based on questions/responses/suggestions. No PowerPoints, but handouts where necessary to detail key points. The purpose of this conference is to engage the participants in discussion and debate. This is not a direct delivery context but rather the presenter's  role is to foster discussion and make sure everyone contributes and goes away at the end engaging with a range of ideas and actions they can take.

Workshops (I hour): 
Sessions led by individuals (or teams) to workshop an innovation, resource or strategy from their practice. The emphasis will be on practical applications and, thus, it is expected that participants will work with the presenters so that they come away with knowledge and skills they can apply to their teaching practice. No PowerPoints, but handouts where necessary to detail key points. 

PechaKucha (approx. 7 mins – 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide):
Intended to pitch a key/strongly felt idea or innovation – time limits will be closely adhered to. See examples here.
