AACRAO is a leading authority on student admissions, academic records, international
education, and enrollment management. We invite content experts to share ideas, best practices, and solutions that are helping to shape the future of higher education.
Submit a workshop, roundtable, session or stop & share topic for consideration. Panel discussions, hands-on sessions, and case studies, as well as subject matter that supports AACRAO’s Professional Competencies & Proficiencies, will be given additional consideration.
"Breakout Sessions" are 50 or 75-minute presentations given by one or more co-presenters (75-minute time slots are limited). Still slide and/or video content is expected throughout the presentation. Live polls and interaction
with the audience is encouraged. Presenters are encouraged to end breakout sessions with a ten-minute (or more) question and answer exchange between audience members and the presenter(s). Some breakout sessions may be live-streamed to
a virtual audience. AV includes a podium microphone, a projector and screen, and for larger sessions, a microphone for questions from the audience.
"Panels" are 50-minute presentations given by three or more co-presenters. Still slide and/or video content is expected throughout the presentation. Differing viewpoints or experiences are encouraged from panel members.
Panelists are encouraged to take questions and answers from audience members throughout their session. AV includes a panelist table with at least one table microphone, a projector and screen, and for larger sessions, a microphone for questions from the audience.
"Roundtables" are 50-minute discussions led by a presenter on topics at the forefront of the field. Still slide and/or video content are often included as visual prompt "talking points" for the discussion. Roundtables do not
follow a “standard lecture format”; they are interactive and involve sharing from the audience throughout the session. AV includes a podium microphone, a projector and screen, and for larger sessions, a microphone for questions from the audience.
"Stop & Shares" are 30 to 50-minute small, informal gatherings where participants can connect with colleagues who experience similar challenges and successes on their campuses. Conversations typically center around a hot topic,
best practice, technological innovation, or continuing dialogue from a past meeting and/or presentation. These sessions may also be used for individuals who want to present research, gather input on research, or may wish to present a unique idea
but not in a formal session. AV (microphones, projectors, and screens, etc) are not provided for Stop & Shares.
"Workshops" are half to full-day courses led by experts in critical content areas of the field. Courses range from basic skills and knowledge in registrar, admissions, recruiting, and enrollment functions to courses that help participants
build on their work experience to advance in their careers. Registration for workshops is usually separate from registration for the full conference event. Workshops take place before the Annual Meeting begins. AV includes a podium microphone, a projector and screen, and for larger sessions, a microphone for questions from the audience.
“Pre-Recorded” are 30 - 50 minutes and preclude real-time interaction with viewers. Presenters must pre-record their presentation video and send AACRAO the .mp4 file to upload to the conference platform two weeks
prior to the start of the meeting. Pre-recorded sessions are only available on-demand to virtual attendees.
