Call for Presentation Proposals

D2L Presentation Opportunities

D2L is committed to providing various virtual (and in-person when possible again) presentation opportunities to our customers, employees, and partners. Presenting at a D2L event or webinar provides you with a chance to share your story and make sure your voice is heard.

Call For Proposals has closed for Fusion 2021, but we are still accepting presentation proposals for Affinity Networks, and D2L Webinars.

Why Present at a D2L Event?

This is your opportunity to share ideas, new industry trends on learning and development, the future of modern learning in the workforce, pedagogical practices, or highlight noteworthy projects with your peers.

Presenter Guidelines

  • You can create and save a draft and submit changes to it at a later date. Once you submit your proposal for review, however, you cannot make further changes.
  • D2L will communicate with the lead presenter. It is the responsibility of the lead presenter to coordinate all aspects of a presentation with any co-presenters.
  • Presenters from different organizations are encouraged to present together.
  • Lead presenters must invite their co-presenters individually so that they can view and modify this proposal.
  • Please note that you may have only three co-presenters (for a total of four presenters, including yourself).
  • Presenters and co-presenters must accept the stipulated terms and conditions. 

Presentation Formats

Events and presentation format options may vary, but below are the most common presentation format options for presenters to expect at D2L events:

Standard Presentation

Presenters share their topic in a traditional webinar or breakout session setting.

Panel Presentation

This format includes a group of presenters with a moderator speaking as a panel in a traditional webinar setting.

Discussion Topic

Facilitators/presenters prepare questions and drive discussions that lead to in-depth debates and encourage audience members to give and receive feedback or share similar interests in a discussion forum setting.

Five-Minute Flare

This presentation style is made up of 15 slides, each of which is displayed for 20 seconds before automatically moving onto the next slide (similar to the Pecha Kucha format). The key to a successful Flare presentation is the use of interesting visuals and fluid speaking.
