A Panel, consisting of 3-5 people (including the chair), present their views on a common theme, issue, or question, and then to discusses them with the audience.

The Panel must present an opportunity for the audience to hear well reasoned arguments and discussions about pertinent topics as seen from a variety of viewpoints. For example, 'on-line testing' could be a Panel discussion with panelists presenting arguments in support of, and in opposition to, testing.

Panels must include the audience. Thus, the panelists should take no more than 30, of the total 60 minutes, to make their case and then guide the audience through a discussion and series of questions and answers. In an effort to present differing viewpoints, it is a requirement that panelists can NOT all represent the same institution, research project, or association.

Panel selection will be based on the importance, originality, focus and timeliness of the topic; expertise of proposed panelists; as well as the potential for informative AND controversial discussion.

Panels must allot at least 50% of the time for interaction and discussion with the audience.

The Panel leader should provide an abstract describing the panel and a submission file with the following sections that describe the panel:

  1. introduction that links the theme to the literature and its significance for the field of information technology and teacher education, around 150 word abstracts of each panelists' perspective,
  2. list of panelists' perspective titles and authors, with their organizations, and countries in the order they will be presented, and
  3. outline of how the panel will be organized. After acceptance, the Panel coordinator will be given the option to invite Panel authors to submit their papers to a specific website. Until then, authors should NOT submit their individual papers for the Panel. Contributing authors may choose to publish their papers in the Proceedings as a Full or Brief Paper. The Panel abstract will only appear in the conference Abstract book.

Submission proposal length: 2-6 pages (1250-3750 words) Due Date

These sessions allow maximum interaction in informal, small-group discussions on a single topic. The format is appropriate for papers, projects, or work-in-progress that encourage discussion. Roundtables share a room with 2-3 other concurrently held Roundtables.

If you wish to bring a PC, you could demonstrate a new piece of software, illustrate the process of using it, show participants some of the complexities and tricks about it, and give them an opportunity to try it themselves.

Internet (via your wireless card) and electricity will be provided. A screen and projector will not be provided as this is an informal small group discussion environment not conducive for projecting images from a distance.

These sessions are also appropriate for discussion of instructional strategies, procedures, and evaluation procedures. The idea is not to give a definitive workshop on the topic but to provide participants with enough information to help them decide whether their needs can be met with the program or procedure.

If software is to be discussed, include a description of the software and the objectives of the session.
