We expect this format to be interactive. We are asking people to say in their written proposals which of these 3 options they would like to use:
Option 1-Topical Presentation
A speaker frames the topic, shares ideas and perspectives, guides the exchange of ideas based on participant needs, and encourages participation.
Option 2- Topical Conversation
Two leaders begin a conversation on a topic and then facilitate the participation of others at the table.
A leader facilitates a brainstorm to explore and evaluate processes or ideas. It would be excellent to have a variety of research, theory, programs, and practices considered. Here you can test and idea or theory on other plain language practioners.
Tell us how you plan to do it
In your proposal, show how you would lead a 20-minute discussion. What is your key question or theme? How will you engage participants? How will you build on shared ideas with each table rotation?
Also, please say whether you want to do this on Friday or Saturday or both. And you can submit more than one proposal.
