Priority will be given to proposals that explicitly address one or more of the following expectations: (a) audience participation, (b) congruence with conference theme or thematic tracks, (c) clear articulation of lessons learned from session, and/or (d) exemplars of community-academic engagement. Submissions should fall under one of the following five categories:
▪ Poster Presentations facilitate individual and small group conversations through the use of visual aid. Presentations that highlight innovative methods for conference participant interaction will be preferred. Poster presentations can emphasize research, practice, action or other initiatives as reflective of the conference themes or tracks. Posters will be organized in thematic groups.
▪ Symposia provide a forum for discussion, debate, and explication of diverse perspectives as they pertain to the conference themes and/or tracks. Symposia may be used to present practice and/or research themes; however, submissions that explicitly describe the process or method that will be used to facilitate audience interaction and dialogue will be preferred.
▪ Roundtable Discussions should provide a forum for the sharing of ideas related to innovative methods for addressing communal thriving, or debate of the issues reflective of the conference theme. This format is especially appropriate for sessions in which the presenters’ role is to facilitate the audience’s exploration of the issue. One or more facilitators may lead a roundtable discussion.
▪ Town Meetings feature discussion of critical issues pertaining to communal thriving. This format is most appropriate for exploring the broad issues that cut across the conference theme, subthemes and related topics. One or more facilitators may lead a town meeting.
