Instructions for Presenting

ESS does not provide laptops, but we do provide the projectors. Most sessions have an appointed Presider. In the event yours doesn’t, kindly coordinate with your co-presenters as to the below instructions.

Paper sessions are 90 minutes in length. Please plan to allow 20 minutes for audience discussion and 10 minutes for introductions, which leaves 60 minutes for presentations. There will be LCD projectors and overhead projectors in most sessions. (Not in roundtables.) Session presiders are responsible for arranging to have a laptop computer at the session to connect to the LCD projector with all of the presentations loaded up in advance of the session. Prior to the session, it is advisable to check the room and check that the computer will connect with the projection equipment. (Macs require a special connector that will enable it to plug into a standard VGA/HDMI cable. We do not provide this Mac connector). We ask all presenters to provide their presentation to the presider in advance of the conference.

We will have AV support personnel throughout the duration of the conference, but we cannot have people stationed in every room at every session. We do our best to minimize any IT/presentation issues and to quickly remedy any such issues. Thank you for your scholarship, support, and participation!

ATTENTION: Because 2019-20 will be Alpha Kappa Delta’s centennial year, we will be celebrating by offering events at most of the regional sociology associations’ annual meetings.

At ESS in Philadelphia, we will have a pre-conference on Thursday, February 27 from 8:30-noon. “Learning from Each Other”. Through engagement with experienced colleagues and with each other, keynotes, panels, discussions, roundtables and networking are designed to provide an integrated learning experience grounded in the scholarship of teaching and learning that will help participants use intentional pedagogical choices to increase learning. This event is made possible in part with the generous support of Norton, our exclusive sponsor. Because sessions at ESS do not officially begin until noon, Norton has generously provided funds to cover Wednesday night at the conference hotel. Details and applications are available at alphakappadelta.org. Remember that AKD offers Fellowships that can help defray the cost of travel to this conference. You can find out more at alphakappadelta.org or contact the Executive Office at AKD@lemoyne.edu.We hope to see you there!
