Monday, October 31st is the new deadline to submit your proposal to present at the 2017 Global Intergenerational Conference.
We are seeking proposals for educational sessions that will enhance the intergenerational field’s capacity for developing practices, programs, and policies that benefit individuals of all ages, strengthen grandfamilies, and build more cohesive and caring communities throughout the world. Generations Remixed will cover a wide range of topics and will include four different types of education sessions. Here are all the different ways you can share your work during the conference:
1. Workshop (60 minutes)
Workshop sessions feature education content that examines new program models, promising practices, or applied research on issues in intergenerational research, policies and practices. These 60-minute sessions must include at least two presenters and should feature interactive activities. AV included: projector, screen, and hook-up for your laptop.
2. Roundtable (90 minutes with 3 presentations)
Roundtables are small-group discussion sessions held concurrently during a 90-minute time slot. A brief presentation of the educational content will be followed by guided discussions and dedicated time for questions and answers. Presenters will deliver their presentation three times (approximately 25 minutes each time), to three different groups of participants during the time slot. An announcement will be made when it is time to end the presentation and for participants to move to a different table. Roundtables can include one or more presenters. No AV included.
3. Poster Session (45 minutes)
Poster sessions are presentations held concurrently during one time slot. Presenters explain and answer questions about their posters, showcasing projects, programs, and research. Poster sessions can include one or more presenters. Details on poster session logistics including sizes and display options will be available in January 2017. Presenters are required to print their posters and ensure they arrive onsite.
4. Morning Buzz (45 minutes)
These sessions are early-morning discussions or activities on specific topics. They allow participants an opportunity to network with peers who either share a community of practice or are brought together by a common interest in specific issues. These sessions are informal in nature and designed to facilitate networking and community. This is not a format for formal presentations. These early sessions can include one or more presenters/facilitators. No AV included.
