CL17 Genre Shark Tank

Back to CL17 Program

The goal of this session is to think about what are the best areas of research, or genres, to invest in for the future. Researchers will give brief pitches of Cyberlearning genres exemplified by their project work to a panel of judges that include former NSF program officers, teachers, and members of editorial boards. Pitches will focus on how the project represents an innovative Cyberlearning genre. The panel will discuss each pitch, consider their merits, make recommendations, and award theoretical funding. The audience will also have an opportunity to vote for their favorite pitch. At the end of the session, the panel’s choice and audience favorite will be awarded.

Emcees: Emma Mercier, Tom Moher
Presenters: Neil Heffernan, Ingmar Riedel-Kruse, Roger Azevedo, Breanne Litts & David Gagnon
Judges: Kristy Boyer, Daniel Edelson, Janet Kolodner, Pratibha Varma-Nelson

Notes for Participants and Judges

CIRCL staff will schedule a quick phone call with participants to go over a few details about the session and answer any questions you might have.

We have allocated 6-7 minutes for each pitch, to allow time for deliberations. If you are using Powerpoint (or Keynote) slides, we recommend that your slides focus on images that you talk over, with minimal text.
