If you’d like to run more than one session, that’s fine - but please break your material down into stand-alone modules. You may get people joining your workshop for later modules who were not present for the earlier ones.
We want to offer attendees a hands-on experience. Please make sure you have labs, exercises or other ways for attendees to get hands-on experience with the subjects.
If you’ve not run interactive online workshops before, don’t worry - we will run training sessions, rehearsals and webinars to help you adapt your material and your teaching style to the online format.
Speakers will receive $75 AUD for each attendee per half-day workshop. Attendees will register for the workshops like they would for a conference session, meaning you won’t know how many attendees you have prior to the workshop.
Here are some suggestions for topics:
We encourage you to submit your top presentation on the topics you are most passionate about and not your entire portfolio. Try to limit your submissions to 3-4. If you have previous speaking experience, please include links to videos, online presentations/slides or blog posts.
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding this call for papers.
Hope to see you at NDC Melbourne 2020.
