Conference workshops will be presented in two formats:

  • Effective practice workshops are traditional conference workshops with a panel and/or presentation and time for audience Q&A. Attendees will leave these workshops with a new idea or strategy to implement when they get home. Effective practice workshops are 60 minutes long.
  • World café workshops include several, brief, intimate roundtable presentations that take place simultaneously. World café workshops are also 60 minutes long, so attendees can participate in three roundtable discussions during each 60-minute workshop.

The call for proposals closes Friday, March 20. We encourage you to submit an application to present at the 2020 NCAN National Conference.
