Share your ideas and experiences – present a breakout session during uLearn20.
An abstract is a summary of ideas you would like to present, workshop and share at uLearn20. Accepted abstracts form the breakout programme for uLearn20. Abstracts can be submitted in English or bilingually (te reo Māori and English).
uLearn20's themes are Pohewatia te angitu | Reimagine success and Pohewatia te ako | Reimagine learning. Share ideas and experiences that support the themes. Or explore the outlined thinking behind the themes, which feed the overarching focus of the conference. (Head to the themes page to learn more.) Plan your abstract to address one or more of these.
Call for abstracts close 7 August 2020.
If your abstract is accepted, you will be notified by 14 August 2020.
The uLearn20 Conference Committee and Research team will consider all abstracts submitted and determine which submissions will be included in the programme, based on the following criteria:
With uLearn online this year, presenters will be offered information and support so you can learn and understand the digital platform we’re using. We’ll provide tips and suggestions on how to present online so that you feel confident and prepared for your breakout session.
Note: all uLearn sessions will be recorded and have facilitated live chat enabled. Some sessions will be made available to delegates post-uLearn.
A variety of formats are available. You could opt for running an interactive workshop, delivering a presentation, or a brief taster session.
Participants will be actively engaged during the workshop using equipment, and/or will be able to follow the presenter using digital tools or equipment as a demonstration (eg. tablets, iPads, computers, apps, extensions, websites, materials.)
Please note: delegates will need to bring the specified equipment or know what they need to download (eg. app).
Session formats are: present, demonstration, panel discussion, or lecture. Presenters should allow for interactivity and question time within the session.
These are designed to give participants a small taste of a topic, concept, idea, or skill. Your audience should be able to go away with a clear overview of a new skill, product, or idea. If you have learned something new or have developed a programme or product that you want to share, this is how to showcase it. Tasters are ideal for exhibitors. We recommend you have an educator who assists in the delivery of these sessions.
Please note: two Taster sessions (A and B) make up one breakout timeslot, with a changeover period built in.
This involves the presentation of a research project or inquiry, followed by a discussion (time allowing). A peer-reviewed selection process applies to these sessions. Learn more about these sessions.
