 Proposal Options Presentations: 45 minute time slot for solo or co-presenters. Please remember to allow time for questions from the audience. Workshops: A new session type for Online Northwest. This is a chance to discuss and accomplish a hands-on task, most likely with your audience participating using a laptop, tablet, or Smartphone. Consider the limitations: 45 minutes, a presentation computer, and wifi (with potentially limited bandwidth) for the audience. Please note what preparations or devices the audience should have with them in the notes field of the proposal form Panel session: Invite professional colleagues to discuss a topic as a panel. To keep the conversation engaging and informative, consider inviting panelists with different perspectives on the topic. As the moderator, allow time for audience questions. Lightning talks: An audience favorite! 5 minutes to blaze through a topic. Presentation slides are usually timed, but we are flexible as long as your talk ends within 5 minutes and is informative and engaging.
