Requirements for Session Presenters

  • Sessions and workshops are organized in Categories to help people bundle their PDPs and follow sessions of the particular language or pedagogical topic of interest.
  • Audio-Visual Needs: There will be a screen and an LCD projector, or a large screen TV, and Internet access in every room. Presenters should bring their own laptops and connecting cables. 
  • Please provide a ten-word-or-fewer title, in English, for your Session.
  • Write a description in English that will serve as the abstract of your session (90 words). Please write your title and abstract in English even if you intend to present in the target language, though you can use pertinent expressions or book titles in the target language. The abstract should contain information about the topics and methods of delivery of your session or workshop. It should serve as an overview to entice attendees to attend your session. The Conference Team reserves the right to edit abstracts and/or titles for clarity.
  • Presentations should engage the audience through hands-on or interactive activities when possible.
  • Please review the linked RUBRIC to know how the committee will evaluate your session.
  • Each presenter is responsible for uploading any handouts for session attendees to access either prior to the conference or immediately following. MAFLA will advise presenters in advance of the room capacity.
