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.
- PowerPoint is a great tool for presentations, but reading out the text doesn't add to the experience of learning from you. Move beyond static PowerPoints: 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?

Map out your information on a poster! It will be informally presented during our evening poster reception and on display for the entire conference.
We have introduced 30-minute mini-sessions if you have something smaller to share.
