2019 AAEE Conference:
Call for Workshops, Presentations, and Posters
Presentation Type Guidelines
These presentations are traditional indoor presentations or talks and should be written to share ideas and programs with audience members. Presentations should include information about engaging underserved audiences, evaluation plans and results, and communication of impacts based on program design. If those program elements have not yet been realized, a discussion of how they will be addressed will be beneficial.
These workshops should be hands-on in nature and include some sort of skill development. Outdoor activities are encouraged, although access to the outdoors is confined to an urban natural environment. Workshops should include information about engaging underserved audiences, evaluation plans and results, and communication of impacts based on program design. If those program elements have not yet been realized, a discussion of how they will be addressed will be beneficial.
10-Minute Lightning Session
A lightning session is a succinct 10-minute talk or pre-recorded video designed to celebrate your success in environmental education (EE). They highlight successful and innovative family programs, school programs, community partnerships, conservation achievements, expanded audiences, research findings, civic engagement, and more. Three related sessions are presented back-to-back for one 40-minute time block, followed by a short discussion.
Posters may include either research or outreach content, meaning if you’ve done any evaluation and data collection you could include a description of your analysis and findings OR if you would like to share some program content and materials that you’ve developed you may highlight those. If your project includes both, that is fine too!
Size: No smaller than 24” x 36” and no larger than 42” x 56”.
Display: Your poster will be on display for the entire day, with an opportunity during lunch to stand by your poster and share your work with others. We will provide a space to hang them and mounting materials. Thus, you will need to deliver your poster at the registration table and will receive further instructions about hanging at that time. Please ensure that the text on the poster is large enough to read.
Important Note About Presenters and Registration
Please note that presenters and co-presenters are encouraged to register for the full conference. Since the conference represents AAEE’s primary revenue stream to cover operations, we are unable to offer a discounted conference registration fee to presenters.
We greatly appreciate the time and effort that you will be putting into this presentation, and so you are very welcome to apply for a conference scholarship. Presenters will receive priority when scholarship funds are allocated.
