SHAPECO Convention – Call for Research & Practice Poster Proposals

SHAPE Colorado invites you to submit a proposal to present a poster at the 2018 SHAPE Colorado Convention in Aurora, Colorado. THIS SESSION IS OPEN TO EVERYONE – K-12 teachers, higher education faculty and undergraduate/graduate students!

1.       Research Poster – this includes completed research, research in progress and action research (data collected while teaching) on any topic relevant to physical education, health education, and physical activity. Any data reported in the research poster must have been institutionally approved by an IRB.

2.       Best Practice Poster – this track allows participants to present great ideas from their teaching (in poster format). Do you teach an innovative unit or an awesome lesson? Maybe you’ve created a wonderful program or initiative in your school! This is your opportunity to share those ideas!

What is a Poster Session?

The poster presentation format involves illustrating your research/project graphically, using charts, photos, diagrams and text on a poster board. The format affords an opportunity for informal dialogue about the research/project with convention attendees circulating among the poster boards. Many authors find it helpful to prepare brief comments on their research to address information in the poster that then can be followed by more in-depth discussions with interested conference attendees. The author must remain by her/his poster board for the duration of the session. Printed posters should be 3’x6’ in size – boards will be provided to display posters on.
