Instructional Courses: The call for proposals is now closed
- Instructional Courses revolve around the topic of the development and application of advanced rehabilitation technology.
Workshops: The call for proposals is now closed
- Workshops distinguish themselves in the field because the presenters work to make the learning experience innovative, interdisciplinary, and informative. Presenters should aim to:
- Deliver current information,
- Have a well-organized structure that stimulates and facilitates learning, and
- Include discussions that draw on the participants’ own expertise
Presenters can conduct the 60-minute sessions in a variety of formats with a single speaker (workshops) or panel of speakers (symposium); hands-on demonstrations; audience-driven show & tells and other types of creative methods of information exchange. Each session must include a visual component (such as a PowerPoint presentation), a hands-on or demonstration component where possible, handouts, and at least a 10-minute, well-moderated discussion period. We encouraging proposals to use audience participation and group activities for more interactive sessions as a primary mechanism for sharing information and learning.
The conference selections will commence in November/December. Our goal is to notify presenters by early January. The schedule will be announced in February.
