Interactivity & Audience Participation

As part of the Faculty of Medicine’s Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Office’s mission to help you improve the health of individuals and populations through the discovery, application and communication of knowledge, CPD designs its programming with interactive elements to encourage audience participation. By actively engaging with presenters, fellow attendees and the session materials, you retain an increased amount of content and can discover new ways to apply the knowledge gained. The interactive components for each type of session at this conference are as follows:

Keynotes: Each 45-minute keynote session is comprised of a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute Q & A. Participants will be able to submit and up-vote questions on their laptops or mobile devices via Slido.com by entering Osgoode into the event code field (see pg 3 of the print program for detailed instructions). Moderators will review the submitted questions and ask the presenters on the audience’s behalf during the Q & A.

Concurrent Plenaries: Each 60-minute plenary session is comprised of a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute Q & A. Participants will be able to submit and up-vote questions on their laptops or mobile devices via Slido.com by entering the name of the session room (Osgoode, Sheraton, Willow or Chestnut) into the event code field (see pg 3 of the print program for detailed instructions). Moderators will review the submitted questions and ask the presenters on the audience’s behalf during the Q & A.

Workshops: All 60-minute workshop sessions are designed to encourage active discussion throughout the session. A 15-minute period will be reserved at the end for any remaining questions the audience may have.

Oral Abstract Presentations: Each 15-minute oral presentation is comprised of a 10-minute presentation followed by a 5-minute Q & A.
