Blended 2013 Session Types

Session TypeDescription

Information Session

Give a 50 minute presentation in which you share information related to one of the learning tracks. Each 50 minute presentation should include 5-10 minutes for questions, answers, and discussion with the audience.  

Standard A/V equipment and a hard wired internet connection to the podium will be provided for your session.  Please note:  The conference does not provide laptops for presenters.  Presenters should plan on bringing their own laptop.

Poster Session

Design a poster to share the main points of your research results or program related to a learning track. You will participate in a display of your electronic poster for one 60-minute session dedicated to poster presentations only. Poster presentations provide the opportunity for you to both expand your audience and interact individually with interested viewers. We will provide a small table for your laptop and power to the table, but there will be no display boards.

All posters are presented simultaneously during a 60-minute Welcome Reception and Poster Session on Monday, July 8 from 5:30-6:30 pm in the Executive Ballroom and Atrium. During the poster presentation session, attendees will freely move between presentations to view your work and talk with you 1:1 about your findings.
 
Poster sessions at Sloan-C conferences are now conducted electronically. Rather than providing display boards for printed posters, Sloan-C will provide a table for your laptop and any handouts you may have. Presentations should be made via Powerpoint or other method on your computer. Because you will constantly have attendees stopping by your table, we recommend you keep your presentation down to a few slides (5-6 seems to work well) that can be easily restarted as new viewers come by. You will also have wireless internet access, so that should an attendee want to delve further into your session topic with you, websites and other information can be easily accessed by you.  Please note that computers are not provided. Each presenter must bring his own laptop. Because of the length of the session, we will provide electricity to your table so that your laptop remains fully charged. Set-up time will be emailed to poster presenters as we get closer to the conference.

 

Interactive Workshop

Design an interactive group session related to a specific area of focus that will provide tangible "take-away" information and engage the audience for a 90 minute or 3 hour session, depending on the length needed for the workshop.  Each workshop session should include time for questions, answers, and discussion with the audience.  Final determination of workshop length will be made by the program chair.

Standard A/V equipment and a hard wired internet connection to the podium will be provided for your session.  Please note:  The conference does not provide laptops for presenters.  Presenters should plan on bringing their own laptop.
