Tips for Submission

    What's Your Topic?

Please take a moment to review the Tips for Submission to help provide you with some guidance or helpful tips for presenting your topic. Even if you feel that your idea does not fit into a specific track, do not let that stop you from sharing yours, even if it doesn't match one of the topics exactly. We encourage and consider all subject matter pertaining to adult students and their higher education journey. 

Poster Session

The Poster Session is a great opportunity for you to discuss your work with interested attendees on a more personal and informal level. In addition, you will be able to present your work to many individuals several times in the course of an hour versus just those who would attend your concurrent session. Network and exchange ideas with others who have similar interests and experiences. Receive instant feedback on your work. No need to worry about formal presentation or preparation for presenting at the conference if your poster is prepared in advance. Review the guidelines for the poster session.
