Message to Presenters

Status notifications have been emailed to all those who submitted proposals for the 2017 PAEA Education Forum. If you have not received an email, please contact PAEA staff at Forum@PAEAonline.org If your proposal has been accepted, please refer to the email sent to the primary author for detailed information..

This year, PAEA received 287 proposal submissions and accepted 36 percent, including two student posters. As usual, the competition was very steep for presenting at the only national conference for PA educators.

Upload Presentations

Give your presentation exposure! Presenters are required to upload their presentation in order to guarantee that it will be available on the presentation laptop we will provide at the Forum. Please ensure that all links are functional before submission.

  • You are also strongly encouraged to share your presentation and/or any supporting documents (outline, sound bites, etc.) prior to the Forum. These will be made available to attendees on the mobile app.
  • While these materials will be available on your presentation laptop in Denver, it is always a good idea to bring an extra copy on a USB flash drive.
  • If you are presenting a poster, you are not required to upload your poster, but are welcome to upload a PDF of your poster and/or any supporting documents you may have.
  • Be sure to upload your presentation by October 2. If you make changes to your presentation after submission, make sure to bring the revised presentation on a USB flash drive the day of your session.
The link to upload your presentation and supporting documents will be posted at a later date.

Polling Questions

Like last year, you will have the option to include up to three questions on our mobile app to help engage your audience.

The link to upload questions will be posted at a later date.

Reminders

  • Each session has an assigned moderator who will introduce your session, keep you on time, track attendance, and evaluate the session. At the beginning of the presentation, they will introduce themselves to you and then sit in the back of the room. They are there to assist you, so please rely on them.
  • All correspondence regarding proposals will be sent only to the primary author. Please forward information you receive about your presentation to your co-presenter(s), if applicable.
  • Presenters are responsible for their own travel, hotel arrangements, and associated costs. Registration for the Forum is not included with an accepted proposal.
  • If you are attending the Forum only to present, or if you have additional questions about your presentation, please contact us at Forum@PAEAonline.org.

Presentation Formats

Chalk Talks & Tech Talks

Develop a single idea (or tightly-bound set of ideas) that relates to PA education with the intention of provoking thoughtful discussion, inspiring new thinking, and cultivating innovation and positive change. The format is a 15-minute talk in the style of a TED presentation.

Focused Discussions

Provide an interactive setting for exploring and brainstorming an identified issue or problem with the goal of sharing ideas and identifying possible solutions. These sessions break into small groups for discussion, brainstorming, exploring, and exchanging ideas on a specific problem, issue, or challenge. Please note that each presentation is made up of 10 minutes for introductory information followed by 30 minutes for small-group discussion and ending with 10 minutes for wrap up. Upon culmination of the session, there should be a conclusion summary report of the strategies or solutions that were identified, to be shared with all attendees of the session at a later date.

Panels

Provide varying views and opinions on a particular issue or topic relevant to PA education. Panelists are individuals who have distinguished themselves in the topic area of the presentation through scholarship and/or experience. Like last year, a facilitator may be added that can question the panelists for a more interactive session. Please note that each presentation is 40 minutes followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion. If a facilitator needs to be added to the presentation, please contact us at Forum@PAEAonline.org to include them in the program.

Spotlights

Provide information in a lecture format on a specific topic, particular educational findings, or observed experiences. The goal is to share, propose, or report findings that may be of interest to PA educators. Please note that each presentation is 30-40 minutes of lecture followed by 10-15 minutes for questions.

Workshops

Focus on educational techniques, approaches, and skills that are delivered in an engaging, interactive, participatory format. The majority of the presentation should be spent in active participation. The presenter’s role is more facilitative than instructional. A maximum of 20 minutes for lecture and a minimum of 60 minutes for active participation are required for workshops.

Research Briefs

Present scholarship in the area of either original research or educational innovations. Please note that each presentation is one of two research briefs scheduled for presentation within the same 50-minute time block. Each presentation will be 15 minutes long followed by 5 minutes for discussion. Please plan to arrive at the beginning of the 50-minute block, if possible.

Posters

Finished posters can be as large as 90 inches wide by 40 inches high. They will be displayed on horizontal poster boards 8 feet wide by 4 feet high (96 inches wide by 48 inches high).

Posters may be uploaded to the PAEA mobile app in a PDF version, but it is not required. Any handouts or information may be uploaded as well.
