Detailed Information

This section includes important information for World Forum presenters and moderators, including planning your session, materials, and travel.

ABOUT THE WORLD FORUM

Our mission is to promote an on-going global exchange of ideas on the delivery of quality services for young children in diverse settings.

Our core values: children • change • relationships • differences • spirit

ABOUT YOUR SESSION

• You’ll share a 90-minute session with other presenters and a moderator. Please wait to finalize your presentation until after the planning call with your group. A World Forum Team Member will be on the call with you to help answer your questions.

• You will talk with your co-presenters about your session format, room arrangement, timing, and making your session memorable during your Zoom call!

• Your session room will have a laptop, LCD projector, screen, sound system, markers, and a flip chart.

PRESENTATION TIPS

• Being yourself is the most important presentation guideline. Share your story, your personality, what you care deeply about. Manage your time thoughtfully to give everyone a chance to contribute and to allow plenty of time for discussion.

• Language: The primary language of the World Forum is English. However, we invite you to integrate other language experiences into your presentation. Brainstorm how you might do this during your Zoom call.

• Use the long breaks, no-host dinners, and World Forum social media pages to follow up after your session.

POWERPOINT AND OTHER DIGITAL FILES

• Digital Files: If you choose to create a Powerpoint, use it as a tool to facilitate understanding for an audience speaking multiple languages. The most effective Powerpoint presentations use minimal text and memorable visuals. Avoid complicated text and dense charts.

• The deadline and information on how to submit digital files for your Powerpoint presentation will be announced soon.

SCHEDULE

• All presenters, moderators, and respondents should arrive comfortably in time for the Program Participants Welcome and Orientation, on Monday, May 16 (Time to be announced soon).

• We will notify you in March, 2022 to let you know the day and time of your session. All program participants are expected to attend the entire World Forum that concludes Thursday, May 19, 2022.

• A detailed schedule will be available in March (subject to change).
