The purpose of the roundtable session is to learn about cyberlearning-related research projects while engaging with peers. The session will last one hour, and will consist of two rounds of presentations and discussions.
How do the Roundtables work?
Roundtables will be spread throughout the ballroom and meeting rooms. At each table, the presenter will take 12 minutes to speak about their cyberlearning-related research, and will then facilitate a discussion among the table participants for the remainder of the round. After 25 minutes, participants will transition to the second table they chose to hear from an additional presenter and engage in conversation with a second group of participants. Participants pick up tickets for a tables they are interested in at the registration desk when they check in for the conference.

Frequently Asked Questions
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). Presenters are asked to lead an inclusive and constructive conversation, starting 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.
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 2 tables when they register at the conference (by picking up roundtable tickets at the registration desk).
