World Forum Foundation
International Working Forum of the
Global Collaborative OnDesign for Children
is now accepting proposals for
presentations and topics
We look forward to a wide range of presentations dealing with all aspects of the design of children’s spaces. This year’s formats will include a poster session and exhibit, 50 minute presentation panels, 50 minute training workshops, and facilitated discussion groups.
Potential presenters are requested to provide on outline of their topic and an indication of which of the following type or types of session they feel would be most appropriate for their material:
- Poster Session – This is intended to encourage sharing of practices, ideas and interesting case studies. Posters will be on display throughout the conference and a poster session will also be scheduled with authors available for questions and discussion.
- Presentation Panel Sessions – 90 minute sessions will include one or more topics and presenters illustrating and discussing innovative practices, design tools and research.
- Training Workshops – 90 minute sessions which are intended to meet learning/skill acquisition objectives.
- Discussion Groups – 90 minute facilitated sessions where colleagues will interact and share information and strategies.
Participants who have suggestions for topics but are not proposing themselves as presenters can submit a description of the topic or learning objective that interests them.
Final selection of topics, presenters and the format in which each subject will be presented will be based on the quality of the proposal, the time slots available, and a concerted effort to provide the most interesting, balanced and diverse set of learning opportunities possible.
As our name implies this International Forum OnDesign for Children we are particularly interested in getting a wide range of presenters from around the world.
Anticipated Topic Areas Include: Planning and Programming; Sustainability, Involving Children in the Design Process; Rights of Children (Regarding learning environments); Outdoor Classrooms, Health & Welfare, Design of furniture & Equipment; Risk Management; Innovations; Inexpensive Learning environments; Landscape & Children; Schoolyard design; Interpretive Spaces
