Session Proposals

The SciEd Conference provides an outstanding opportunity for members of our community to learn with and from each other. This learning depends in large part on members of the community volunteering to organize breakout sessions and give presentations in the short talk and showcase sessions. Please consider submitting a proposal – we welcome everyone’s participation!

Proposals may be submitted for the following types of sessions. Click on the hyperlinks to access the online proposal submission form for each type.

Concurrent Breakout Sessions (1.25 hour)

Interactive sessions that provide ample opportunities for participants to share and contribute. May also include panel discussions, skills training, and/or curriculum training.

Short Talks (15 minutes)

Short presentations on topics related to SciEd projects; e.g., novel program designs, project outcomes, research and evaluation methods and instruments, broadening participation, participant recruitment and retention, etc.

Curriculum & Multimedia Showcase

This session showcases curricula or multimedia materials that are ready to disseminate. Presenters each have a round table and participants move among tables for informal demonstrations.

Video Showcase

Presenters share and discuss videos that have been created as part of SciEd projects. Videos may be a component of educational materials or an exhibit, share program highlights, or promote a program. Videos will be grouped into 1 or more breakout sessions.
