Oral Presentation

Individuals or groups are encouraged to submit proposals that will tell the story of their research, teaching, program and/or innovation, as tied to the conference themes. We look forward to hearing about successes, challenges and outcomes. For those of you who are interested in offering storytelling, practice-based, or academic paper presentations, this is the category for you! 

Poster Presentation

Delegates and organizations may present posters to highlight current research or international programs and community partnerships that yield research opportunities. Poster presenters will display their project on a large bulletin board (provided at the conference). Presenters will attend the poster session to discuss the project with conference attendees, and should also bring a written summary of their work to hand out to attendees. 

Roundtable Discussion

Roundtable discussions provide an opportunity for delegates to present research in progress and/or discuss emerging work with fellow C2UExpo attendees in an informal, conversational style. Each roundtable has multiple presenters to encourage dialogue. Each presenter gets 15 minutes in a 60 minute time slot, which includes time for a question period. Roundtable sessions do not include a discussant. Given the informal structure of the roundtable presentation, no audiovisual equipment will be provided. 

Skill Building Workshop

Workshops provide time for sharing skills, expertise, and formats for a wide range of activities such as developing, implementing, and evaluating community campus based research projects. Preference will be given to proposals that are participatory, interactive, innovative and/or collaborative.

Team Inquiry / Symposium Presentation

A team inquiry presentation involves multiple stakeholders (e.g., at least 2 of the following: community partner, faculty, funding partner, service-learning coordinator, staff member, student, teacher) who have worked on a teaching, research or community outreach engagement project together. These presentations will highlight the value of various participants in the design, implementation, and interpretation of findings. The focus may be on community-based participatory research with various constituencies, including community partners and students. The focus should be on what a group of colleagues learned via their research, evaluation, or engaged teaching experience. This format includes symposia or panels from different teams, or team presentations from a single team.

Creative Works & Performances

We also seek proposals that are not traditional research presentations and that are grounded in arts/performance/creative expressive approaches. This format includes but is not limited to the following: poetry, photography, film, carving, weaving, sculpture, puppetry, participatory theatre, dramatic interpretation, role play, etc.  

Pecha Kucha 
(Night session)

Pecha Kucha talks will advance understanding about community-based projects and community engagement research through a fun and engaging story-telling approach. This is a great place to push the envelope and develop energy for innovative approaches, programs, and ideas.

Failure Wake 
(Night session)

Acknowledging failure is a major part of the growth and development of community-campus partnerships. In this facilitated session (in an Irish bar), presenters will share a project that did not work out and will help us learn how to ‘fail forward’. The evening will feature several short stories on community-campus partnerships/projects that didn’t quite work out as intended. Following the presentations, there will be a lightning round to invite audience members to share their lessons learned. At the end of each presentation, we’ll hold an Irish Wake-style toast to help put these stories firmly in the past .
