  • WORKSHOP (90 minutes)
  • PODIUM (10 minute presentation, 5 minutes for discussion)
  • POSTER (2 minutes for overview, 3 minutes for discussion)

Workshops are intended to provide opportunities for participants to engage with each other and with the workshop facilitators and should be 75% interactive. In your abstract submissions, please specify the methods you will use to engage participants in interactive structured activities, application of concepts or skills, discussion, etc.

Podiums provide a forum for researchers, educators or practitioners to present communication projects that are completed or near completion with clear outcomes or findings to report. Each podium session will include 3-4 presentations thematically grouped with questions and discussion after each.

Posters offer practitioners, educators or researchers the opportunity to share best practices, educational or organizational innovations and research projects. This is also a good place to describe projects that are still in developmental stages. Displays will be showcased during designated conference hours when presenters will be available for discussion with delegates.
