Key Points to Consider When Completing Your Abstract 

  • Briefly state the importance, relevance, value, and/or interest to the Canadian higher education IT community as represented by the CANHEIT and TECC audiences.
  • Successful sessions include the delivery of engaging content in an engaging way - try to include participant interaction as much as possible.
  • You are are encouraged to move beyond static PowerPoint slides and avoid “talking heads”. Use more interactive discussion and innovative ways for participants to learn from you and one another, and contribute to the shared knowledge in the room.
  • Consider the learning outcomes of your session - what will your audience know or be able to do as a result of participating in the session?
