Paper sessions are presented by one or more authors. Approximately 30 minutes will be allocated per presentation (including 20 minutes for the presentation, 5 minutes for Q & A, and 5 minutes for movement of participants from one session to the next).
Symposia are integrated presentations by a team on a specific issue, study or practice. Each symposium should focus on a well-structured theme or a set of inter-related research questions. Within each symposium, each paper presentation provides data or arguments that address those questions. Each symposium submission requires an integrative statement describing the overall theme of the symposium and the connections among the various presentations. If discussants are included in the symposium, they should provide some feedback on the paper presentations or further discussion points for the presenters to respond to.
Each symposium comprises one of the following formats:
Workshops provide an opportunity for an extensive discussion and activities between presenter(s) and participants on a specific topic, subject or project. They tend to have a practical or hands-on orientation, and are beneficial for the conduct and in-depth sharing of proven classroom practice and pedagogy.
Poster sessions provide an opportunity for participants to discuss their research with other scholars in an interactive setting. Poster presentations should provide a clear idea of the topic being addressed, the research questions, methods of data collection and data analysis, and why it is an important topic to study. A poster should rely heavily on graphics to display research results. During the poster session, the presenter(s) is(are) required to be stationed by the poster to answer questions from conference participants.
The poster presentation is to be in the form of a hard-copy printed poster. Further information on the format of posters will be available later on this website. Postgraduate and undergraduate students are strongly encouraged to submit poster abstracts.
Submit an abstract of not more than 350 words in English and include aims, methodology and findings (or its equivalent) to firstname.lastname@example.org together with authors' details.
