The call for conference proposals is now closed. Thank you to those who submitted workshop proposals.

Conference workshops, or presentations, will have two formats: 

  • Effective practice sessions are traditional conference sessions with a panel and/or presentation and time for audience Q&A. Attendees will leave these sessions with a new idea or strategy to implement when they get home. Effective practices sessions are 60 minutes long.
  • World café sessions include several, intimate roundtable discussions that take place simultaneously. Each presenter leads a 15-minute segment consisting of a seven-minute presentation and discussion with a small group of attendees. After 15 minutes, attendees rotate to a different table/topic, and presenters lead another presentation/discussion cycle with the new group. World café sessions are also 60 minutes long, so attendees can participate in three small discussions.

We hope to see you in Indianapolis!
