Results from a conference session about conference pedagogy

Gary, Adrian, Greg and I led a conference session about conference pedagogy. Organized around 5 activities, we asked participants to tell us what made a conference worthwhile or ‘good’. We also invited them to complete some questionnaires based on 16 Guidelines on learning from The University of New South Wales, crafted by Adrian Lee and Michele Scoufis

Below the reference, you will find a link to each activity and its results. Those who contributed (N = 26) did so voluntarily, anonymously and knowing results would be shared.
