Content Formats

Dialogue Facilitation

A 60- to 90-minute facilitated discussion. Facilitators will be given a room and the option to bring in other presenters, panelists, and/or resources to help to engage participants in conversations. Facilitators will conclude by leading participants to creating a commonly agreed upon group action plan.

Flash Session

A 30-minute presentation on a selected topic to be presented individually or with a co-presenter(s). This delivery format provides a quick exploration of a topic area in and is designed for quick takeaways.

Panel Discussion

A 50- to 90-minute session where any combination of staff, students, and/or corporate partners come together and participate in a moderated discussion. Panelists speak from personal experiences and engage one another as they seek to enhance attendees’ understanding around a specific topic or content area.


A passive content delivery format that captures a snapshot of a given topic or content area via a poster. Information is geared toward engaging attendees in-person and/or virtually with a focus on providing information in a fun, creative, succinct, and engaging manner.

Product Demonstration

A brief 30-minute walkthrough or demonstration of a product. The goal is to expose attendees to new products or services as well as new updates or features to existing products or services.

Show and Tell “Hacks”

A 10-minute presentation about a unique solution to a common problem or challenge. In this session format, presenters will provide attendees a quick overview of a problem/challenge, and then explain the unique steps or processes adapted to solve and overcome it.


A 60-minute session where presenters facilitate an in-depth exploration around a useful or beneficial product or service. Unlike product demonstrations, presenters should plan to present to those who already have product/service and may want a deeper understanding of a more complex area. Presenters are expected to allow time for a general Q&A.

Traditional Session

A 50-minute presentation on a selected topic to be presented individually or with a co-presenter(s). This delivery format often explains or explores a specific topic area in depth and engages participants to think deeper in selected areas.


A 90- to 120-minute session aimed at engaging attendees through a combination of presentations, reflection, and/or group work. Workshops are meant to be “deep dives” into specific content areas and enhance attendees knowledge beyond a traditional educational session.
