Session Types

A “standard session” is a 45-minute breakout session presentation. Please share your own studies, techniques, experiences, education, and practices on how you further the idea of “learning to Learn.”

A “Learning Stack” session is a shorter presentation (15-20 minutes) where you will present a brief overview of strategies, techniques, methods, innovations, or tools that have helped you encourage and motivate learning in your teaching environment (K – 12, community college, higher education, etc.). Audience Q & A will be encouraged, so please keep your presentations concise and to the point! 

Multiple “Learning Stack” sessions will take place during the same time slot as a standard session.

As an alternative to submitting a proposal for a full presentation, you are welcome to submit an idea for a poster session. Poster sessions will be set up in the Atrium of Butler-Carlton Hall, around 4:00 p.m., and will be on display during our Vendor Reception at the end of the day on Thursday, March 15, 2018.

  • PRINT: We can accommodate several different sized posters, but you’ll most likely want to stick with a standard size. These sizes are available at most print shops and places that accept large print jobs, such as Staples® or Office Depot®. An excellent size for posters is 36” wide by 24” tall. EdTech will provide easels. Poster presenters are responsible for all printing, laminating, and foamboard mounting costs.

If you have a demonstration that would not fit within our standard session, this is for you. These 1 hour 45-minute sessions are a great way to give a hands-on demonstration about your topic.
