Theme and format description
Please also review the calls
The WLS team sets up and plans a number of workshops, aimed for the non-research oriented audience. These are described here. Attendants who so wish, can suggest other workshops and discussion themes. If accepted, the commitment comes with it to chair the workshop, as well as communicating with presenters. A new workshop must consist of at least two panels. Each panel in a workshop is required to field a minimum of five presentations, with conceptual idea presented for review according to specifications made clear on the calls page. The bonus in organizing a workshop is a free ticket to the summit, including all social events. Travel and hotel costs still apply.
Workshops and workshop themes must have a clearly formulated idea, address a relevant topic and be aimed at a clearly targeted audience. Workshop curators have the responsibility of preparing a summary documentation, within the stated deadline. Workshops will be reported in our online Official Word Learning Summit Proceedings.
Workshops will have roving audiences, which means that presentations will begin and end on time. Discussions will be confined to each workshop. Panel sessions typically last for about 1.5 - 2 hours.
