Be a Star Conference Presenter: Design a Session That Reflects How People Learn Best

Educators know, based on years of research, that effective learning happens when learners are:

  • Actively engaged (as opposed to passive recipients of information)
  • Equal partners in the learning process
  • Socially engaged
  • Connected to information that directly relates to their everyday lives
  • Supported over sufficient time for learning to not only be absorbed but applied

Despite this, educators continue to go to professional meetings like NAAEE and “deliver” presentations to “deficient” colleagues as if they were lecturers in a mid-20th century classroom. In this webinar, free-choice learning experts John Falk and Judith Koke will engage participants in an exploration of what good educational practice and learning science research say about how to create effective conference posters and presentations that better reflect how professional learning should happen in the 21st century.
