The theme of the 3rd International conference on Experiential Learning is “Connecting Classroom Learning with Industry Practices”. The conference supports the 21st century educational philosophy of connecting active learning and participatory experiences with reflection. Promoting a multidisciplinary pedagogical approach, Experiential Learning educators purposefully engage learners in direct experiences outside the traditional classroom, thereby fostering interest and enabling them to acquire skills, knowledge and experience for lifelong learning. Accordingly, the aim of the conference is to provide a platform for intellectual dialogue on pedagogies and practices that demonstrate purpose-driven experiential learning including:

  • internships

Oral Presentations

Oral presentations must be delivered in English. Presentations will be strictly limited to 15 minutes each, with an additional 5 minutes at the end for questions and discussion. These time limits will be strictly enforced to keep the conference running on schedule, thereby ensuring that all speakers have the same opportunity to present their work and that audience members can readily move between sessions to hear particular talks. Speakers should plan on arriving at their assigned meeting room a few minutes prior to the start of their session ensure that their presentation has been properly loaded onto the dedicated laptop.

Electronic Presentations

Microsoft PowerPoint (with standard aspect ratio of 4:3) is the official format for electronic presentations. We will accept a PowerPoint file (.ppt) or a Portable Document Format (.pdf) file, and we strongly encourage you to save your presentation in both formats in case of a file compatibility issue or other unforeseen technical problem. All oral presenters will need to bring their presentation on a USB flash drive and load their presentation in the assigned meeting room prior to the start of their session. It is the responsibility of each individual presenter to ensure that his/her presentation(s) are uploaded in the assigned meeting room at least 30 minutes prior to the beginning of the session in which they are presenting and to test their files before uploading.

Important: If your presentation contains links to video files, it is essential that you bring not only your PowerPoint file, but also your original video files to the assigned meeting room. The preferred video file formats are .MPEG or .MP4, but .WMV and Flash video files are acceptable. QuickTime, .MOV, video files are not compatible with PowerPoint and should be converted to one of the above formats. All videos should be tested and checked in advance in the assigned meeting room to be sure they will work properly.

Poster Presentations

Poster presenters will hang their posters upon arrival at the conference beginning on Friday, October 19, 2018. All posters should be in place by Saturday morning at 11:00 am when the first poster session is scheduled to begin. We will assign each presenter the venue where your poster will be displayed. Poster presentations will remain on display for the duration of the conference. Authors will have the opportunity to discuss their presentations with conference attendees during tea breaks. All poster presenters are strongly encouraged to be present during their assigned session. The conference will not be responsible for any posters left behind.
