Presentation on pedagogy
A traditional presentation format, with speaker and projected content. The presenter might discuss a variety of topics, such as implementing a technology into a traditional face-to-face course; transitioning traditional elements to an online format (such as discussions, group projects, etc); or simply trying something new, like teaching a hybrid or blended course. What worked? What might you do differently next time? Presentations in this format should run 20-25 minutes to allow time for audience questions. Some examples from past presentations include: integrating polling in the face-to-face classroom, designing an online or hybrid course, and using a specific tool such as VoiceThread or Google Docs.
A seminar-style session. The presenter will act as moderator, spending 5-10 minutes introducing the topic and his or her interest in or experience with it. Then, he or she will moderate a discussion with the audience. The full discussion will run 30 minutes. Examples of discussion topics might be: best evaluation techniques for online discussions, facilitating active online discussions, best practices in flipping the classroom, adding engagement to face-to-face courses.
Two to three presenters might discuss their experiences around a topic for 20-25 minutes total, allowing a few minutes for audience questions at the end of the presentation. Panel members should all have experiences surrounding one topic which is discussed throughout the session. Examples from past panels include: designing and teaching a course using Open Educational Resources and assessing online courses.
