In keeping with the conference theme ‘transcending boundaries’ the HELTASA 2017 conference organising committee have decided to ‘walk the talk’ by including alternative presentation formats and modes of presentation. This year in addition to the Paper, Poster and Critical Dialogue sessions we introduce the ‘Flipped paper session’.

Based on the idea of the flipped classroom, this session will focus on discussion of complete or draft papers that delegates would have read prior to the session. The intention of the session is to focus on the discussion of the paper instead of a presentation. Presenters will be given 5 minutes for a brief overview of the paper followed by discussion for the remainder of the session. Complete or draft papers must be submitted by 15th October 2017. These will be made available to delegates interested in the sessions prior to the conference.

This will be a great way to receive feedback on your paper. Should you be interested in this presentation format select this option in the abstract submission page on the conference website.
