Let us know how you will engage the audience. Carefully select a session type as you consider your presentation style. Tell us how you will meet various learning styles, use materials, or ask questions. Highlight how the content will be presented in an engaging, interesting, and/or interactive manner.
Consider the challenges or successes you have experienced in your work and/or in implementing your material. Explain how these lessons can be applied more broadly to the work of others.
Help us understand what you know! Use examples, share research, or highlight a case study, illustration, or story. Show how each presenter demonstrates their experience and contributions. Elaborate on the situations or scenarios where the information has been previously applied and why you think it is relevant, timely, and important to share with others.
Be clear and captivating. Proofread your submission so that it is free from grammatical or spelling errors. Edit your work to focus on the main points while providing enough detail to fully convey the topic of the proposal, the approach used to present information, and the intended impact it will have on the audience.
Provide an additional voice or perspective with co-presenters such as adding a colleague with a different role, those with lived experience, the end-user of the training, someone in a similar role but from a different state or country, or anyone who might add dimension and additional insight.
Ensure all of your co-presenters have been added before the submission deadline. OCALICON uses an open review process, meaning that reviewers are provided with the names and bios for each presenter listed on a proposal. We believe that the experience and expertise of presenters influence the quality of the presentation. Adding all of the co-presenters prior to the review process provides reviewers with a better understanding of the collective profile of the presentation team.
