Submission Instructions

I.  PRESENTATION FORMAT TYPE

Workshop

Workshops are interactive learning sessions designed to facilitate skill-building. Most workshops should be designed for delivery to all participants (100-130 participants), but some may be designed for smaller breakout audiences (25-30 participants). Duration: 60-90 minutes


Education Discussion Group Session (EDGrS)

EGDrS are led by 1-2 facilitators who guide participants through discussion of an educational issue or theme. Duration: 60 minutes, including a brief introduction (<5 minutes and up to three slides) by the facilitators followed by a discussion amongst the attendees.  NOTE: These sessions should NOT be used as time to deliver ‘short talks’.


Panel Discussion

Panel Discussions explore a range of perspectives and approaches to a well-defined educational issue. Duration: 60 minutes.  Begins with a <5 minute presentation by a moderator and < 2 minute presentation by each co-panelist and is followed by a discussion with panel and audience. Limit of five panelists, including the moderator.  The panel discussion should address specific questions or issues clearly stated by the moderator. NOTE: Panel moderator MUST ensure that adequate time is preserved for meaningful discussion with the audience and will manage the discussion to prevent a monopoly by individual audience or panel members.
