Some Helpful Suggestions

In your full papers, please remember to

  • Present a review of the previous literature in relevant field
  • Describe explicitly and clearly the theoretical contributions of your paper
  • Describe implications of findings and conclusions for practice and/ or research
  • In case your paper takes up a general phenomenon in a special context (e.g. ‘Future of Higher Education in Malaysia’ or ‘Sustainable development in Singapore’), please consider the following:
    • review the literature on the general phenomenon as such or in other contexts;
    • describe why you study the certain phenomenon in this specific context;
    • describe what it is, in the specific context, that plausibly might lead to novel conclusions; and
    • how the described context has affected the results of your study; connect explicitly the findings of your study to the specific context so as to bring out the Asian perspectives, theories and models.

Presentation Guidelines

You need to send in your final Power-point Presentation to us latest by July 10, 2017 (at submit@ellta.org) so that these can be uploaded on the system.

In the subject line of your email, clearly state (in the following sequence): PRESENTATION (Submission ID), Submission Title (see example below):

PRESENTATION (ID: 400) – Leadership in Asia

 

Deadline: July 10, 2017

 

Face to Face Presentation

Effective Time Allocation: The overall time allocation for your presentation would be 30 minutes – this includes 10 minutes Q/A, feedback or discussion at the end of your presentation.

Purpose: Your primary responsibility, as a PRESENTER, is to articulate your work/ ideas in such a manner that it inspires high quality interactions among the session participants (it should inspire meaningful questions and discussions). You should clearly indicate where you want help from your colleagues (audience) – e.g. in refining ideas/ design, collaborative writing, extending the empirical work, etc.

You may want to refer to the Conference Program Design to find specific details regarding the following two kinds of presentation formats and clearly mark (on your ppt.) the one your presentation will opt for.

  1. Theme Based Sessions for Publish-ability (TBSP)
  2. Theme Based Sessions in Traditional Format (TBTF)

(cf. https://www.ellta.org/ellta-2017/programme/)

 

Furthermore:

  • Get to know the other papers/ presentations on the Paper Session/ Slot – this will help you in creating cross linkages, enhancing the relevance of your presentation
  • Stay conversational (as a rule of thumb) and NOT use more than 15 minutes for presenting your ideas (i.e. keep maximum space for interactions!)
  • Multimedia presentations are generally very helpful. Additionally, you may distribute some handouts to support your presentation.
  • Appreciate questions and comments as a knowledge contribution of your colleagues to help you refine your ideas
  • Focus on presenting interesting and important ideas only instead of trying to put everything on a 15 minutes presentation.
  • Do not try to put too much text on a ppt., for it not only distracts but detracts from the quality of presentation (using images may help in addressing the issue of content average)
