Concurrent Sessions


We invite proposals for concurrent facilitated online workshops, of one hour duration. Competition for these coveted spots is likely to be fierce. Proposals will be peer reviewed with emphasis placed on:

  • Relevance to the conference theme
  • Engagement with participants

Proposals must  include at least 2 presenters: while one is presenting the other will manage the online chat. Concurrent sessions will be recorded; by submitting a concurrent submission proposal, you are agreeing to have your session recorded and shared after the conference has concluded.

Submission Form Requirements

  • Presenter information: Name, Position/Role, Institution, Email
  • Additional Presenters: Name(s) and Role(s)
