PRESENT & DISCUSS

Present and Discuss Sessions allow presenters to present their research and findings in an in-depth manner. These presentations are individually submitted and have already data and results to present.

Symposium


SYMPOSIUM

Symposia provide an opportunity to present research on one topic, often from multiple perspectives, compiling a coherent set of papers for discussion. Symposia sessions are directed by a chair, involving three presenters and one discussant.

Poster Session


POSTER SESSION

A poster communicates the main ideas, objectives, results and conclusions of an ongoing research project. Each presenter will be given 5 minutes to present his/her poster. Afterwards, the delegates can walk around, ask questions or start an in-depth discussion with the presenters.

Flipping The Session


FLIPPING THE SESSION

The flipping-the-session includes an online introductional video with the research results and interview quotes or other dynamic aspects of the study and a face to face discussion during the conference.

WORKSHOP

In a workshop presenters can demonstrate a tool that has been developed through research, show a new teaching method as a result of the project or illustrate collaborative inquiry strategies used in research.
