Praxis Post(er) Guidelines
The information below reflects the guidelines for the most recent conference and is provided now for reference. These guidelines may be updated for the next conference.
What are Praxis Post(er)s?
GSOLE Praxis Post(er)s are brief, prerecorded video presentations used to share practices and research about practices related to OWI and OLI. Post(er)s might examine teaching, tutoring, or the administration of online programs.
See below for guidelines and tips for preparing them for the upcoming conference.
How the Post(er)s Fit into the Conference
Ten days prior to the day of the synchronous online conference, conference participants will be invited to visit our Virtual Post(er) Hall, which will consist of links to GSOLE-hosted pages that each include one Praxis Post(er) presentation as an embedded video. The pages will also allow for asynchronous commentary on the presentations.
Live Q & A Sessions
On the day of the conference, Post(er) presenters will each participate in a synchronous video-conferenced panel including three or more fellow presenters. Presenters will be given five minutes each to briefly introduce themselves and their presentation and to offer remarks that engage the audience about their Post(er), which audience members are presumed to have already viewed. These remarks might take any of the follow forms:
We hope these remarks and the Post(er)s themselves will lead to a robust conversation.
Presenter Responsibilities and Rights
Preparing the Post(er)
Choosing a Development Platform
A variety of tools can be used to create and share videos online, including many common slide-based composition tools. In some cases, more than one tool must be used to complete all the necessary steps. Here are some possible scenarios:
Designing the Presentation
A micro-presentation like this doesn’t allow much time to support big claims or demonstrate intricate processes. But that doesn’t mean presenters can’t discuss sophisticated OLI concepts and practices. The key is to remember that the Praxis Post(er) is just the start of a discussion about OLI issues or innovative teaching and administrative practices.
Other Production Considerations
Here are a couple of other considerations to ensure that your presentation will both meet the guidelines above and be accessible to viewers.
