Workshop/Professional Development Sessions

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Education book series (BRIEFSEDUCAT)


When presenters review the call for presentation proposals from different organizations, they typically have choices about the type of session they prefer to make. These sessions vary, not only in the length of time allocated but also with respect to the purpose. Each type of conference session at each venue has to be understood in order to maximize a prospective presenter’s success at that meeting. This chapters provides guidance in the major types of conference presentations: workshops/professional development, roundtables, posters, papers, symposia/panel discussions, distance/virtual presentations, and keynote addresses or other invited sessions.
