Please note that all panels are reviewed by the Panel Coordinator before being approved and scheduled. To be approved, you may be asked to fulfill specific requirements posed to you by the Panel Coordinator and ConBravo! determined by the type of panel you are proposing.
Discussions focus on open discussion and diverse viewpoints and encourage audience participation. They are generally run by 3-4 panelists, with one acting as the moderator. They may not require a high level of expertise or authority because they are more about sharing opinions or asking questions.
Presentations focus on presenting a topic with minimal outside discussion. They usually are accompanied by visual aids (PowerPoint, video, etc), and are more likely to be approved with just one panelist who can speak with some level of authority on the topic.
Tutorials focus on instruction and education. They may have a classroom set up and visual aids are encouraged. They are more likely to be approved with just one panelist and demand a higher level of expertise or experience related to the topic.
Workshops focus on instruction with hands-on materials, ideally so participants can create a sample of what is being taught or walk away being able to apply what they have learned. They may have a classroom set-up. These will only be approved for those willing to provide or assist with sourcing supplies and may require additional volunteers to monitor and manage participation.
