Session Formats

As a reminder, the schedule offers sessions in three different formats to help foster a co-learning experience:

Lightning Talk

Suggested purpose: highlight accomplishments or unique programs, share an interesting story or artifact from your work, showcase a project or initiative in your area
Time:
Lighting talks will be scheduled in 15-minute blocks with 5 minutes allotted for the presentation, 5-8 minutes for facilitated Q&A or discussion, and any remaining time for transition between talks.

Bully Pulpit

a conspicuous position that provides an opportunity to speak out and be listened to; coined by U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt to describe a platform from which to advocate an agenda (Wikipedia)

Suggested purpose: cover multidisciplinary topics (think beyond program area content), share current and potential innovative programs and initiatives, provide an overview of research and its applications, review a book or concept that has impacted the way you work
Time: Bully Pulpit talks will be structured similarly to TED talks. Each talk will have a 30-minute block of time. The presentation should be about 18 minutes. Following the presentation will be 10 minutes of facilitated Q&A or discussion, and any remaining time will be used for transition.

Breakout Session

Suggested purpose: cover a topic in greater depth
Time: Breakout sessions will be 60 minutes, of which 40-45 will be allotted for the presentation and 15-20 for Q&A and discussion.
