Learning Forward values presenters' participation throughout the conference. Presenters are required to register for the conference, at least for the day of their session, and pay any fees that are required. Early registration and member discounts are available.
All presenters are required to register by September 30, 2022.
Learning Forward distributes handouts electronically. For attendees to have access to digital handouts via the conference app, all handouts must be submitted electronically by November 25th:
- Session Handout(s). Handouts are not limited; however, they cannot exceed 10GB each.
- Presentation slides – if you would like to provide your presentation slides as a digital handout, a PDF of your presentation slides needs to be electronically submitted.
All preconference and concurrent sessions will have an assigned session host. In addition, a member of the host committee will be accessible during your session.
All sessions at the conference will be evaluated using an online session evaluation provided by KickUp. The session’s host will facilitate this process and ask participants for an overall rating of the session, about the presenters’ use of effective teaching and learning strategies, whether the presenters should be invited to return, the impact of the learning on participants’ work, the primary way what was learned will be used, and other comments.
- Session Evaluation slide to add to your presentation slides – COMING SOON!
- 1-page handout for facilitators – COMING SOON!
- Facilitator Guide to collecting session feedback – COMING SOON!
Room set up and audio-visual equipment
All preconference and concurrent session meeting rooms are set in rounds of 6-8. These rooms will be set with AV within an hour before the session start time.
Learning Forward will provide all preconference and concurrent session rooms with a screen, LCD projector, and wireless internet connectivity.
- Sessions under 45 participants will need to bring their own speaker for sound, if sharing video(s) or music.
- Sessions with 45 or more participants will be provided with an audio patch for their computer and one wireless microphone.
Any other AV equipment needed must be ordered through the conference AV provider. Associated costs are the responsibility of the presenters.
Experience has taught us that WIFI can be a bit uncertain when it comes to sharing Livestream videos. To prevent any issues during your session, we strongly suggest you download videos to your laptop for sharing.
Round table sessions
Roundtable sessions are 45-miunute presentations and discussions. They are excellent venues for giving and receiving feedback, engaging in in-depth discussions, and meeting colleagues with similar interests. Roundtables will take place in a designated banquet room. Each roundtable is limited to 10 participants, seated together at a single table. AV is not provided.
Onsite presenter room
Flip chart/easel pads and markers will be available to borrow from the presenter room, located near registration.
2022 promotions kit
All presenters are strongly encouraged to promote your session via social media and personal outreach. Please visit the 2022 Promo Kit (coming soon) for Twitter posts to share, electronic badges and more!
The hashtag for the 2022 annual conference is #LearnFwd22
Learning Forward policy prohibits the sale of products and services during conference presentations. Presenters may not display or distribute brochures or order forms, talk about their services, promote themselves, or sell their publications; however, referencing or citing a presenter's own publications is appropriate.
