Guidelines for Presentations
Presentations are an opportunity to showcase ongoing or completed SoTL research and to discuss significant findings. To encourage critical dialogue among conference participants, presenters should plan for approximately 15 minutes of presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussion.
Please send your presentation slides to email@example.com by noon on Thursday, November 8 so that we can have them loaded onto the computer in the room where you will be presenting.
Guidelines for Roundtable Discussion
A roundtable discussion is an opportunity to discuss your SoTL research in a less formal format than a presentation. As the leader of a roundtable discussion, you should be prepared to facilitate dialogue with interested colleagues. You should also prepare a visual (such as a handout, digital image/graphic, or poster – no PowerPoint presentations) as a starting point for the discussion.
If you plan on using any digital materials, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on Thursday, November 8 so that we can have them loaded onto the computer in the room where you will be presenting.
