Pre-conference Workshops

Pre-conference Workshop:

The 2019 preconference theme is Learning Spaces – the places and spaces where learning takes place (learning e.g., experiential, land-based, integrated workplace, active learning spaces, sustainability/outdoor, etc.). These half-day workshops are an opportunity for in-depth learning discussion related to the pre-conference theme. Pre-conference workshops should include an interactive workshop component.

Main Conference Sessions

When the bell rings, participants move on to another table this is repeated three times during the session. Speaking Circles are ideal for ongoing or completed SoTL work, reflection of experience/point of view papers, or thesis presentations.

Poster Session (SoTL or Reflection of Experience/Point of View):

Poster size 4 x 3 or 4 x 6. Posters will be displayed during an interactive session in which attendees get to engage with each poster presenter. Posters are ideal for an ongoing or completed SoTL work, reflection of experience/point of view papers, or thesis presentations.

Traditional Presentation (SoTL or Reflection of Experience/Point of View):
