Due to the highly interactive character of these Workshops, the size of the session is limited and it is advisable to arrive early to secure your place.
It is not possible to increase the planned maximum capacity of the session or to stream the session to another area.
Why do we do this?
The EAACI Congress is what it is thanks to its participants and we want them to enjoy the Congress. In evaluations, the attendees told us many times: ‘We want more interaction.’
Participants look for three things: to learn, to network and to have a positive experience. All these points result from interaction.
Education changes through technology and science. It shapes format and group techniques. More interaction and group work and less lecturing seem to be the way forward.
The positive atmosphere around the format is visible in the voting results on the statement: ‘this was a pleasant format’:
How do you do this?
As a speaker or chair in Interactive Workshop, you are in the driver’s seat to redesign your session: give your session a real energy boost!
It is simple:
1. Break your presentation into smaller, more memorable, chunks
2. Use pictures, no bullet points
3. Involve the participants by asking a voting question
4. End your presentation with a task for the groups to work on
a) Watch these short instructional videos:
- Making your session dynamic (5 min)
- How to improve your session slides (9 min)
- The interactive discussion system (4 min)
No more than 15 slides? Including one voting + one discussion slide with one (1) statement/question/case?
Only, WS 1 and WS 8 speakers can submit 20 slides, including one voting + one discussion slide with one (1) statement/question/case.
Why? See Session script: for a session with 3 speakers.
d) Presentation Review:
We check: number of slides, readability, quality of pictures, one message per slide, voting question(s) and discussion slide.
PPT submission deadline: Friday, May, 26th
