RESNA’s sessions distinguish themselves in the field because the presenters work to ensure the learning experience is innovative, interdisciplinary, and informative. Presenters aim to: 1. Deliver current information; 2. Have a well-organized structure which stimulates and facilitates learning; and 3. Include discussions which draw upon the participants’ own expertise.
For 2021, we are accepting session proposals in the following configurations:
- “Buzz” Sessions – 30-minute sessions devoted to one hot topic; this may include one speaker, a panel of speakers, a hands-on demonstration, a show and tell, or another creative format.
- Workshops – 60-minute sessions which are interactive and make use of audience participation and group activities as a primary mechanism for knowledge transfer; this may include a single speaker, a panel of speakers, hands-on demonstrations, show & tell, and/or other creative formats.
- Master Classes – 75 minute or 90 minute sessions which are in-depth explorations - and designed for advanced and experienced AT professionals; these may include a single speaker, a panel of speakers, hands-on demonstrations, show & tell, and/or other creative formats.
Each session type must include a visual component (such as a PowerPoint-type presentation), a hands-on or demonstration component where possible, handouts and/or other teaching aids, and time for discussion. Please consider innovative ways to convey information and increase audience participation.
