Session Description:

Graduate Student Pitch & Ditch: Work from graduate students at any point in their program is invited. With this presentation, graduate students have the opportunity to present 3-5 slides and will have 5-minutes to discuss their research. This will be immediately followed by a 2-3 minute question period. This format is intended to take the place of the traditional poster presentations.

Oral Presentation: For research that has been completed but not yet presented at a conference, presenters will have 12-15 minutes to present their research followed by 2-3 minutes of questions (presentation time will depend on the number of submissions received).

Oval Table: A non-traditional round table discussion as a space for sharing projects and ideas that may not necessarily be identified as research in the traditional sense. This may include community-based work, collaborative projects, and other relevant topics/ideas. Presentation (20 minutes) and facilitation of a discussion (7-10 minutes).

Disrupt and Dismantle Panel Discussion: These are NOT research presentations but rather an opportunity to discuss a controversial issue in Physical or Health Education (e.g., sport influence on PHE, use of fitness testing, uninformed/political opinions on curriculum development, etc.). For this presentation type, the presenter(s) will propose the topic for discussion and invite 4-5 ‘experts’ to present varying points of view on the topic. The session will last approximately one hour.
