Click here to submit a roundtable proposal.
Many people attend the Summer Institute in order to interact with and learn from other practitioners who are engaged in similar projects. While the workshops and works-in-progress presentations offer the opportunity for interactions focused on a specific topic, there is also a need for less structured conversation. The purpose of the roundtable conversations is to fill this gap.
Participants who are interested in exploring a relevant topic in an informal setting are invited to propose roundtable discussions of about 45 minutes and to serve as the facilitator of that discussion.
Please note that roundtables should not include formal presentations. Instead, they should provide an opportunity for open discussion.
Roundtable proposals should provide the following information:
- Names of roundtable facilitators (limited to two)
- Roundtable title
- A brief description of the roundtable that answers the following questions in no more than 250 words
- What topic do you hope to discuss?
- Why are you interested in discussing this topic?
- Which other participants do you encourage to participate? (Information you might discuss here includes but is not limited to job descriptions, goals, and research, teaching, and or administrative interests.) In what ways might these participants benefit from the discussion?
- A list of questions that you’ll invite participants to explore
- Strategies you might use to create an interactive discussion
You will also be asked to provide a 50-word descriptive summary of your proposed roundtable for the program.
The number of roundtables accepted will depend on space in the program. Roundtable leaders will be notified of acceptance status shortly after registration closes. Those who are not selected to lead a roundtable discussion will be invited to give a works-in-progress presentation.
