When you write your proposal, please indicate the question(s) you plan to explore (in 500 words or less). In addition to your selected theme, please you are invited to explore the following framing questions:
The following session types will be offered at the annual conference. The description of each includes information about what is to be submitted as part of the proposal.
Description: Roundtables are 45-minute oral presentations with discussion with attendees seated around a table. Roundtable presentations typically include 15 minutes of presentation, followed by 30 minutes of discussion and feedback. Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and in-depth discussion on a particular topic. The abstract should detail the focus of the presentation and the way(s) in which it contributes to the theme/strand. Please note that roundtable discussions are not an appropriate format for presenters that anticipate more than 15-20 people in attendance.
Description: This formal graphic presentation of your topic, displayed on poster board, offers an excellent opportunity for gathering detailed feedback on your work and reporting on evaluation results. Posters will be presented during our poster exhibition (TBD). Posters should NOT be used to advertise a product or service. Like a paper, a poster abstract should detail the focus of the presentation and the way(s) in which it contributes to the conference theme/strand. NNER will provide the backing boards and pins for posters, and presenters are responsible for providing all items to be attached. Posters must fit within 44” x 44” display, and we strongly recommend bringing copies of a one-page handout about your work to distribute to those interested.
Description: Presentations are formal sessions by one or more individuals with expertise in a stated field, including K-12 education, higher education, arts and sciences, and the community in general. The individual(s) share(s) their research or innovations through a lecture following by response to audience questions. For a 30-minute presentation, please reserve 10 minutes for audience questions, and for 60-minute presentation, please reserve 15 minutes. The abstract should detail both the background(s) of the presenter(s) as well as the importance of the material that will be presented. Most presentations will include audio-visual aids that illustrate key points and a computer, LCD projector, and screen are provided in each room in which a presentation is held.
