Presentation Formats

The symposium will feature various presentation formats. All accepted proposals can be considered for the publication of proceedings and will require the submission of a short or full article. Authors will be notified of this option after acceptance.

Paper Presentations (Extended abstract: 300-800 words)

Paper presentation proposals should spell out work/research that is in progress or completed on studies related to the conference theme. The aim of the presentations is to stimulate discussions among academics and practitioners. The papers should provide a framework and the main recommendations of the study for facilitating productive discussions. Each session for paper presentation will last for 20 minutes (15 mins presentation and 5 mins Q&A). Paper submissions must address the objectives or purposes, conceptual perspectives or theoretical framework, methods, results, and academic or practical significance of the work.

Poster Sessions (Extended abstract: 150-500 words)

Posters are designed to showcase a project, program, process, activity, or similar experiences that are completed, in progress, or in early stages and for novel and promising ideas. All posters will be showcased in a parallel session. Feedback and insights from colleagues on these innovative developments are especially encouraged. Poster submissions must address the objectives or purposes, conceptual perspectives or theoretical framework, methods, results, and academic or practical significance of the work in a brief fashion.

Interactive Sessions (Extended abstract: 150-300 words)

The interactive sessions are to provide an opportunity for sharing experiences on sound pedagogical and research practices in an interactive fashion. Potential focuses include implementation and demonstration of effective design, innovative application of technologies in teaching and learning, discussions on developing research or pedagogical ideas or issues related to IT in education, etc. The aim is to stimulate the development of pedagogical and research ideas and practices through rich interactions and conversations. The time for each demonstration session would be 30 minutes (15 mins presentation, 15 mins audience engagement). The submission must address the objectives, overview of the presentation, details about the work, how the authors plan to engage the audience in rich conversations, and the academic or practical significance of the work.

Practitioner Sessions (Extended abstract: 150-300 words)

In these highly concrete, practical sessions, presenters will share best practices or do teaching demonstrations about IT in education. The goal of these sessions is for attendees to learn about evidence-based practices, or to use technology to implement innovative ways. The time for each practitioner session would be 30 minutes (20 minutes presentation, 10 minutes Q&A). Session proposals must include a clear statement of the technologies that will be discussed and identify specific evidence-based teaching and learning practices to be implemented. Presenters can choose to deliver the session in English/Cantonese/Putonghua.

Panel Discussion (Extended abstract: 150-500 words)

These four- to five-person panels focus on vibrant topics of contemporary concern and professional interest. In these sessions, panelists quickly compare and contrast disciplinary expertise with an active, participating audience. Submissions require a designated chair to organize and facilitate the interchange between the panel and the audience. The time for each discussion session would be 30 minutes. Abstracts should state the purpose of the discussion and identify panel members and each member's expertise in the session.

Professional Workshops (Extended abstract: 150-300 words)

Workshops are intended to provide intense professional development opportunities that result in participants acquiring new skills. The time for each workshop session would be 1 to 2 hours. Workshop proposals should identify specific learning goals or outcomes for attendees. The proposal's short description should indicate if attendees should bring any equipment, software, or materials with them to the session.

Technology Showcase (Extended abstract: 150-300 words)

Technology Showcase is an expo-like interactive session that allows participants to share experiences with the latest tools or novel use of old technologies for learning and teaching.
