- Make a strong connection to the conference theme. This conference is an opportunity to craft a collective vision for equity in the CSU. How does your presentation topic contribute to or advance a vision?
- Highlight the impact of your work on the advancement of equity on your campus. What are the results of your work? How did your work improve equity and what evidence do you have to demonstrate that? If the impact has not yet been measured, how can you tell that it is working?
- Don’t be afraid to address what didn’t work! There is pedagogical value in sharing the mistakes and failures along with our successes. Give us the full picture!
- Choose the format that best suits your presentation. 30-minute demonstrations showcase a process or tool, describing its implementation, its basic functions, and the results. No more than two or three presenters are required. 60-minute panels are designed for lengthier conversations, such as sharing research, bringing together multiple voices and perspectives, or explaining the creation and implementation of a new program, and may involve up to five or six presenters.
- Be clear about how you are including student voice. We highly encourage you to include students as presenters, but if that is not possible, consider audio or video recordings or direct quotes from students. Your proposal should contain a clear plan for how you anticipate highlighting student voice.
