What makes a proposal and conference contribution innovative and engaging? Here are some thoughts:

  • It is interactive – well-received sessions have deep learning objectives wrapped in an engaging and inviting package to encourage fellow participants to explore the topic.
  • It is topical and adaptable – to be broadly useful, proposals should fit with a wide range of learning programmes and be useful across sectors.
  • It is inspirational and thought-provoking – some proposals will be most interesting through case studies, and how easily they can be replicated by attendees in their own context.

In the submission form, you will be able to provide detailed information in the sections "synopsis", "participant benefits" and "take-aways". Evaluators and participants will rely on these details, so please be descriptive and outline:

  • How your proposal is relevant to the event themes, audience and purpose
  • How it will stimulate thinking and prompt discussion and debate
  • The challenge/problem it addresses and why this proves to be an innovative approach, method or solution
  • The outcomes from attending for your audience; information which will be most useful for participants in their working environments

The programme committee will provide guidelines and recommendations in respect to your proposal and the format in which it might be included in the agenda, in an effort to ensure sessions will be as interactive and practical as possible. Should you have a preferred OEB24 format or want to propose a new format, you will be able to outline that in the submission form.
