Call for Poster Presentations
Do you have a great project, idea, new research, or a teaching method you would like to share with conference attendees. Do you feel like 45 minutes is too long, formal, or intimidating? We invite you to do a poster presentation at WVFLTA! The poster presentations provide an informal platform for you to share with fellow attendees as they explore your posters. Posters can be digital or a physical poster. You can bring photos and artifacts as well. If you would like to present a poster, please contact Amelia Richter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
