We are taking a slight departure from our symposium
formats of the last three years. Previously, our learning sessions
have been operated entirely under the
Virtual Space concept. This year we have
adopted what I'm calling Enhanced Virtual Space. Under the new
format, we are inviting specific industry leaders to present sessions
during the symposium. These sessions will be announced ahead of time
as Prepared Presentation sessions. The invited presenters will also
be welcome to participate in (or lead) regular Virtual Space sessions.
Note that any other registered person may also announce a
prepared presentation ahead of time, as in past years.
Invited presenters will be given a choice from four 2-hour time slots
for their topic. All other sessions are 1-hour time slots, however
presenters may book two slots if required.
Topic: The final choice of presentation topic
is entirely up to the presenter.
We cater to a very diverse experiential crowd. Over the past three
years we have had school teachers, corporate trainers, social workers,
university leadership co-ordinators, contract facilitators, camp staff,
and more. Experience levels have ranged from relative newcomers to
over 30 years of experience. This year, we expect similar diversity,
but we are also targeting to attract more practitioners from the corporate
EE training sector, and more highly experienced practitioners.
Please send us the title and a brief description of your topic by
Wednesday, February 15, 2006, along with a bio and digital photo of
yourself if you have one. Let us know of any specific A/V needs you
may have and we will attempt to fill them.
Here's where to
send your workshop information.
we create workshops
Our symposium operates in a very powerful format called
Virtual Space, where many of the workshops and sessions
are not announced ahead of time - because we don't know what the final
list of sessions will be. This format, while having its own very
definite structure, allows for the flexibility of sessions being created
by participants, either ahead of time or in the moment as needed.
You don't have to present anything if you don't want to - there are plenty
of practitioners who will take on that role. Trust the process.
Looking at previous samples of sessions from CEEPS
might give you an idea of other kinds of topics we have covered in the past,
but we don't presume to know the learning needs of our participants ahead
of time for this year. If you have a particular interest, you simply
request a session and one will be created for you.
