Presentation FAQ

1. What is the conference theme? How should I align my presentation proposal?

The theme of this year’s conference is Teaching for Change. A primary goal of the conference is to provide a platform where participants can hear and share ideas and experiences about how we, as an institution, can explore how we can equip our students to shape their futures and the world in which we live.

2. How do undergraduate students and alumni make a presentation at the conference?

Undergraduate students and alumni are eligible to present on a topic co-authored with a faculty or staff member in the related area.

3. How long are each of the concurrent sessions?

All concurrent sessions are scheduled for 50 minutes. Within this time, presenters are encouraged to prepare a 40-minute presentation and leave 10 minutes for a Q/A with participants.

4. What technology will be used for the concurrent sessions?

This year's conference will be hosted virtually using Brightspace and Webex.

5. Will the concurrent sessions be recorded?

With presenter permission, sessions will be recorded and shared after the conference. This will allow those who could not attend the conference to benefit from the information shared. It also provides a great artifact for presenters’ portfolios.

6. What help will be available to those who are chosen to present?

An information session will be held for presenters who may want a quick overview of the presentation rooms and the available technology in advance of the conference. CITL staff will be available during the conference to assist with accessing Brightspace and Webex. If requested, presenters can have a moderator in the Webex room to help manage questions.
