Forums are one-hour sessions that form the core of the conference offerings. Over 200 forums are scheduled over the three and a half days of the conference. Forums are intended for audiences of approximately 50-75 attendees and typically include multiple presenters. Some of the best forums provide perspectives from different institutions or college divisions. Presenters are expected to engage participants in meaningful learning experiences using
a variety of interactive learning techniques, to provide handouts, and to respond to follow-up requests for information.

Roundtable Discussions

Roundtable discussions are one-hour sessions that offer personal and interactive venues for the exploration of key issues in each of the innovations
streams. Approximately 120 roundtables will be held over the course of the conference. Roundtables accommodate up to 12 participants and are limited to
two presenters. They are particularly well-suited for exploring narrowly focused topics and for small group interchange.

Poster Session Presentations

Poster Session presentations provide the opportunity for participants to make brief remarks, share information, and answer questions about the presentation topic. Poster Session presentations take the form of an exhibit and are delivered primarily through the use of visual displays. Presenters must arrange for their own display materials, including hardware, software, and AV equipment. The conference will provide a table and two chairs for each accepted Poster Session presentation. Please note: Poster Session presentations are not provided with access to electrical outlets unless arranged and paid for by the presenter(s). Conference participants will be free to move from one presentation to another during the Poster Session. Presenters are encouraged to have ample handout materials available for participants.

Learning Center Courses

Learning Center Courses are three-hour and six-hour workshops held in one-day and multiday formats on some of the latest innovations being used in
community colleges. These courses augment the conference program by providing in-depth exposure to specific topics in each of the seven conference
streams and by linking participants with a community of learners who share common interests. Attendees receive continuing education units (CEUs) for
completing Learning Center Courses and can expect to take home a body of practical knowledge and applications. Selection of Learning Center Courses is
very competitive (maximum of 10-12 are chosen) and is based on the originality and usefulness of the proposed course and the expertise of the presenters.
