Presenter Guidelines

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

Presentation Formats

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

Standard Presentation

This format allows you to present your topic in a traditional in-person setting or webinar.

Panel Presentation

This format features a group of presenters with a moderator in a traditional in-person setting or webinar. You will organize the panelists and facilitate the discussion.

Discussion

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 forum setting, for example, brainstorming sessions, roundtable conversations.

Five-Minute Flare

This presentation style comprises 15 slides, each of which is displayed for 20 seconds before automatically moving on to the next slide (similar to the PechaKucha format). Interesting visuals and fluid speaking are key to a successful Flare presentation.

Lightning Talk

This presentation is longer than a five-minute flare and shorter than a standard presentation. It is an opportunity to share high-level information about a topic.

Fusion Hangout

This 10-to-15-minute interactive activity showcases your organization in a special or unexpected way. In Fusion Hangouts, anything goes—stretching, meditation, drum demonstrations, team building, improv, culinary demonstrations, wellness tips, and so on.
