CL17 Roundtables

Back to CL17 Program

The purpose of the roundtable session at Cyberlearning 2017 is to learn about multiple projects on a certain topic. The session will last one hour, leaving ample time for discussions.

How do the Roundtables work?

There are 16 roundtables, spread across Ballroom C+D+E, Salons 1/2/3, and the Alcott Boardroom. Each table is dedicated to a specific topic and hosts 10 people. Of these, 2-3 are presenters who will take 10 minutes each to introduce their cyberlearning-related research to the participants. We ask that participants stay at the same table for the entire roundtable session.

Participants pick up a ticket for a table they are interested in at the registration desk when they check in for the conference. The number of tickets per table is limited (there are only 10 chairs, including the presenters’), so pick up your ticket early to get access to your favorite table.

Presenters are asked to self-organize their presentations and lead an inclusive and constructive conversation. They will start the roundtable session by giving the non-presenting participants at the table a chance to introduce themselves and to state why they chose to join this table.

How should presenters prepare?

Presenters should be ready to introduce their project to a group of 9 other participants. There will be no projector, just a round table with 10 people. Presenters may want to bring along a few copies of a handout about their project, or of a relevant paper. Or they may want to bring along their laptop with a short video about their work (or a URL of such a video, so the other participants can watch it on their own laptops).

Who will present?

The program committee picked a the presenters and determined the table topics above based on the information conference participants specified in their applications.

Where does the information about the tables come from?

We asked presenters to fill in a form where they could provide a title and a short description (and optionally a picture) of what they will present.

How will non-presenting participants find a table?

While we pre-assigned presenters to tables, the other participants will choose a table when they register at the conference (by picking up a roundtable ticket at the registration desk).
