I-MELT call for posters with 200 word abstracts

In response to a number of requests, and to complement the International conference on Models of Engaged Learning and Teaching (I-MELT) full program of presentations and workshops, we warmly welcome submissions of 200-word abstracts for poster presentations. If you didn’t have the time to write a short paper of 1500 words, or you are still in the early days of exploring MELT-related ideas, the committee invite your abstract submission.

The poster session is called ‘MELTing Moments’ and will involve two minute presentations to the whole audience. In addition posters will be on rolling display on large screens in the National Wine Centre during the conference.

Poster presentations are an opportunity for creatively representing to the audience aspects such as:

  • your own adaptation of MELT that suits your context
  • what happened when you implemented MELT
  • MELT in the design of:

o individual activities

o components of a subject such as the laboratory stream

o a whole subject

o assessment activities, marking and feedback

o a whole program

Papers may be submitted to research-advice@i-melt.edu.au by 6 September and will be reviewed by the committee. You will be informed by 13 September about acceptance.

Details on the abstract focus, structure and submission is at http://www.adelaide.edu.au/rsd/i-melt/papers/

You can see the program of keynotes and outline for workshops, peer-reviewed presentations and conference events, as well as registration and accommodation details at www.i-melt.edu.au (early-bird registration closes 30 September)
