All abstracts should clearly identify and justify the preferred presentation format (workshop, symposium, Deeper Dive, or poster). Each abstract should include information on the following:
Significance to the UI community—how does the study advance theory and/or practice as described in the literature; what does it suggest as a next step.
Study population—identify the educational level (K-12, community college, undergraduate, graduate, postdoc, young professional, other career stage), and all other characteristics for the study population, and if relevant, comparison/control group(s).
Contextual and other factors—if a case study, what is adaptable; if another kind of study, what major variables were measured and how; identify any limits to generalizing the findings.
Outcomes of the intervention—state findings in relation to time frame, data analysis, and design/methodology used.
Abstracts submitted for the workshop format should indicate learning objectives, the audience most benefited by information presented, the means by which the audience will be engaged, and the relevant expertise of the presenter(s).
