D2L Call for Presentation Proposals

At D2L, we’re committed to providing valuable in-person and virtual presentation opportunities to our customers and partners. Presenting at our events gives you the chance to share your knowledge with others in the learning community.

CFP Is Now Closed

Why Present?

This is your chance to showcase new ideas, trends and best practices in learning and development. You can also share inspiring stories and successes.

Submission Details

Our Fusion 2023 CFP is open until February 24, 2023.

As the lead presenter, you must invite your co-presenters to view and edit your proposal. You can have up to three co-presenters (four presenters in total). All presenters must accept the stipulated terms and conditions.

  • You can save a draft of your proposal and make changes to it anytime. Once you submit your proposal for review, you cannot make further changes.
  • We’ll work with you to coordinate your presentation details. As the lead presenter, you’re responsible for coordinating all aspects of your presentation with your co-presenters.
  • We encourage presenters from different organizations to present together.

Presentation Formats

Choose the presentation format you prefer. Our Steering Committee may recommend a different format after reviewing your proposal.

  • Standard Presentation (40 minutes)
    Share your topic in a traditional in-person setting or webinar.
  • Panel Presentation (40 minutes)
    Explore your topic with co-presenters and a moderator in an in-person or virtual panel setting. You’ll organize the panelists and facilitate the discussion.
  • Discussion (40 minutes)
    Dive into your topic with your audience using questions that lead to conversations, feedback and knowledge sharing in an in-person or virtual discussion setting.
  • Five-Minute Flare (5 minutes)
    Sum up your topic in just 15 slides, each displayed for 20 seconds before advancing (like the Pecha Kucha format). A successful Flare has interesting visuals and fluid speaking.
  • Lightning Talk (20 minutes)
    Outline your topic in less time than a standard presentation.
  • Fusion Hangout (15 minutes)
    Showcase your organization in a unique way with an ‘anything-goes’ interactive activity.
