Presentations include (but are not limited to): new work that has not been presented elsewhere papers / presentations given elsewhere (e.g. at a discipline specific conference) completed projects / action research work in progress (activities underway but not yet complete, which have interesting findings or questions arising) demonstrations and or presentation of examples of creative and innovative practice (e.g. development and use of Wikis, podcasts as a learning tool; examples of formative assessment etc) personal reflections and viewpoints on topical issues and matters arising Workshops Workshops are 45 minutes and must be activity-based. Within your abstract please give an outline of what the activity is going to be and how you are going to engage your audience. Roundtable A roundtable discussion involves a Chair and panel of presenters (maximum of 4) who facilitate discussion around a key theme. Delegates can explore and develop learning and teaching topics and it can act as a platform to discuss ‘work-in-progress’ submissions with other researchers. Presenters will normally address an agreed aspect of the topic or issue(s), which must be one of the conference themes. They will be offered an opportunity to share their ideas for up to 10 minutes. This will be followed a discussion which involves the audience. A facilitator will document the discussion so that any relevant points can be recorded. It is possible for us to facilitate a roundtable around a particular topic that you would like to see discussed. If you have an idea for a topic please contact us before the submission deadline to talk about it. The abstract should state the topic to be discussed and some background information for this choice. It is not necessary to include the names of individual presenters, however they should have agreed to participate, and ideally have met as a group prior to the conference. The individual submitting an abstract for a Round Table Discussion will normally be assumed to be prepared to act as Chair (or to be willing to identify and recruit a Chair) and to recruit and organise panel members. 'Show and Tell' presentations These are new to our conference and are an exciting opportunity to hear about, and discuss good practice. Presenters will be grouped into 4s for each one hour session, as much as possible each session will be grouped by topic. They will have a maximum of 2 slides to introduce their initiative and are encouraged to produce a poster which will also be displayed in the foyer over lunch. All presenters will provide a 5 minute introduction and then participants in the session will have the opportunity to view presentation materials (poster/DVD/etc) for 20-30 minutes during which time they will have the opportunity to ask questions from the presenters. There will be a discussion (chaired) for the final 20-30 minutes.
