During PTEE2019 several formats are available to presentation and discussion. When submitting an abstract you are asked to choose ofne of them.
1. Discussion (Duration: 5+13 minutes)
The papers presented in this session are focused on discussion. Authors will be allowed 5 minutes in order to introduce their paper to the audience. They may bring a one-page A4 handout for audience members to summarize their key points and to focus the discussion. The use of PowerPoint or equivalent will not be allowed. After the 5-minute introduction, the session chair will facilitate 13 minutes of discussion about the paper. This discussion is expected to take the form of a dialogue rather than an unstructured sequence of questions to the author. The session will typically be in a round table format where possible. All papers presented in the discussion sessions will be made available ahead of time and audience members will be encouraged to have read them to ensure that a full discussion can take place.
2. Flipped conference talk (Duration: 1+17 minutes)
This format brings the constructivist and participatory approach of the flipped classroom into the conference setting. The aim is to engage participants (after they have familiarized themselves with the respective paper before the session) in an in-depth and interactive discussion with fellow audience members and with the authors. As the success of flipped formats is highly depending on the preparation material as well as prepared participants,
- presenting authors are requested to provide some material for the participants, which enable them to prepare appropriately well in advance of the session. Authors are encouraged to be as innovative as they would like as long as they remember that preparation time for participants will be limited. The preparation material should include a task or question for conference delegates, which they can use to prepare for the flipped talk.
- conference delegates participating in a flipped conference talk are strongly encouraged to prepare for the session according to the material provided.
Presenting authors can kick off their 18-minute talk with a 1-minute icebreaker (e.g. a video, a summary or a poll) before engaging actively with session participants. As usual for the flipped format, all papers presented will be made available ahead of time and audience members are encouraged to have read them to ensure that a meaningful discussion can take place.
3. Poster pitch & poster (Duration: 30 seconds / 5+5 minutes)
In order to help conference attendees to identify the poster presentations that are most relevant to their areas of interest and to raise the profile of the poster session, poster sessions will be preceded in the conference programme by a Poster Pitch session. Each poster author will be asked to prepare and submit a single slide to the conference organisers. The slide will be on a standard power point template and will include the paper title, the author’s name and affiliation and room for a single graphic or a small block of text (a quote, a series of bullet points etc). The organizers will take care of chaining the slides into a single presentation for the Poster Pitch session. The Poster Pitch session will take place in plenary session and prior to the scheduled Poster session. After a brief introduction from the session chair, each poster author will be allowed 30 seconds to briefly ‘pitch’ their poster to generate interest amongst the conference attendees. The 30 seconds will be strictly enforced. At this point, the authors should not be asked questions; they can be asked when attendees view the posters during the scheduled session.
4. Oral presentation (Duration 10+8 minutes)
This format represents the standard oral presentation format. Authors will be allowed 1 to present their paper in 10 minutes followed by 8 minutes of questions from the audience to clarify and probe the work presented. The 10 minutes of presentation can make use of PowerPoint or equivalent, but this is not required. Authors are encouraged to be as innovative as they would like as long as they stick to the time window they have. If an author wishes to do something different that relies on technology, they should make this known to the conference organisers at the earliest opportunity to ensure that the smooth running of a session is not impacted. Authors are also reminded that a 10-minute presentation should equate to no more than 10 (content) slides (if slides are to be used). After the 10-minute presentation, the session chair will facilitate 8 minutes of questions and discussion about the paper.
5. Short hands-on / mind-on activity (Duration: 18 minutes)
Short hands-on / mind-on activity is a session format that is very practical. Authors should prepare an 18-minute session where participants will have the chance to try things out with their own hands or minds. Thus, presenting authors are strongly encouraged to bring artefacts that are closely related to the topic of their full paper (e.g. demos, simulations, teaching & learning materials or tools). The use of PowerPoint or equivalent will not be allowed. Authors are encouraged to be as innovative as they would like as long as they stick to the time window they have. All papers presented in a short hands-on / mind-on activity will be made available ahead of time and audience members are encouraged to have read them to ensure that they get full benefit from the activities.
6. Workshop (1 hour or 2 hours)
Workshops are intended to allow the participants to gain some in-depth view of a teaching method or other topic related to teaching physics in the engineering curriculum. The authors should limit their input to a total of 15 or 30 minutes maximum, with the remainder of the time devoted to hands-on or minds-on activities, usually in a small-group setting. Ideally, those activities should include tasks that allow the participants to transfer what they learned to their own classroom or research activity, i.e.the focus should be less on the participants familiarizing themselves with the work or project of the presenter and more on learning something that is directly relevant or applicable for their own professional situation.
