Session Formats

Presentations (20 minutes + 10 minutes discussion)

Report on a study—quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, action research, reflective/theoretic—or an evidence-based pedagogical practice. The proposal should contain a precise statement of the problem or issue, followed by a description of the research method and design or the chosen theoretical concepts, the major findings, and the conclusions reached.

Interactive Workshops (90 minutes)

Workshops are an opportunity to model an innovative practice, strategy or innovation for your colleagues through collaborative hands-on activities. Proposals should clearly describe the practice you intend to feature, the aims and the overall structure of the session, as well as how you will actively engage the audience.

Roundtable Discussions (90 minutes)

Roundtable sessions are ideal for works-in-progress, pedagogical innovations, or taking up an issue of current debate in our field. One session lasts 90 Minutes and is hosted by a facilitator who firstly gives a brief introduction to the chosen topic (10 Min) and afterwards encourages an active and egalitarian discussion with of all participants. Proposals should indicate the topic of your discussion, why it would be of interest to writing center colleagues, and how you plan to engage and facilitate an active and dynamic discussion.
