Roundtables offer unique opportunities for learning and professional exchange of ideas and concepts. ANTSHE wants to capitalize on this format. We want to build on the strengths of the roundtable format and offer the following guidelines to assist you in preparing and presenting a roundtable.
Description: Roundtables are Four, 20-minute oral presentations with discussion with attendees seated around a table. Roundtable presentations typically include 20 minutes of presentation by each of the four presenters, followed by 10 minutes of discussion and feedback director to each of the presenters. Roundtable presenters should bring targeted questions to pose to others at the table in order to learn from and with those attending. Roundtables are an ideal format for networking and in-depth discussion on a particular topic.
There is a limited number of slots available for presenters, please submit your proposals early to take advantage of this new presentation ANTSHE will be providing.
