Don’t forget to submit a proposal for the Denver NAI National Workshop at www.interpnet.com/workshop.
There are new options for presentation formats this year, too. According to the National Office:
This year we want to mix it up a bit and offer different types of presentations and you can help. Gather your colleagues and get creative. Think of this as an interpretive program with your peers as the audience. What would they like to see? How do you think they will learn best? What can you do to make your presentation a peak experience? What will the audience take home? Here are some suggested presentation styles to get your thought-processes motivated.
- Panel (Up to 4 individuals discussing the same topic)
- Poster Session (Marketplace of Ideas: Casual Q&A; one-on-one contact)
- Roundtable (Small group discussions on a selected theme with different topics)
- Learning Café (One large idea is discussed in small groups at different tables. Moderator records main points and shares them with the next group as individuals move from table to table.)
- Discussion and Debate (Presenters offer divergent viewpoints on a topic.)
- Team Presentation (A group shares their perspective and experience; time for Q&A)
- Talking head (One presenter shares research, program, or story; time for Q&A)
