L2ML Virtual Presentation Guidelines
Digital presentations for L2ML will be posted online beginning on April 17, 2023. Symposium participants may visit and post comments or questions to the presentation authors, all of whom will need to visit their page and respond to questions at least once daily during that week. We will also schedule times for live discussion of some presentations (details about this option will be emailed to accepted authors), and times will be confirmed on the program in advance.
Presentations must be shared with the symposium organizers by Friday April 7 (see below about how to get them to us).
The preferred format for the virtual presentations is a video file with audio, no more than 20-25 minutes long. If your file is longer than this, it will be cut. We invite participants to be creative in their presentations; please do not submit a presentation consisting solely of video of yourself speaking. You may want to consider viewing the digital presentation playlist from the 2020 L2DL symposium or the ones from the 2022 Intercultural Competence Conference, to see examples of this kind of format.
Each application, version, and platform has different means of creating audio-enhanced video or presentation files. Recorded PowerPoint presentations, for example, can easily be saved as MP4 files. Because of this diversity, we ask presenters to search Google, Youtube, or the application websites for tutorials when they are preparing their work.
Authors should make sure that they have rights to use any material in their presentations. Please be aware that if you are linking to Youtube videos, for example, you may be infringing copyrights and your video may be removed or blocked by the platform.
Getting your work to CERCLL
In the proposal acceptance email that authors received, presentations were required to be submitted to CERCLL in MP4 format with audio, by Friday April 7. Files should be no more than 80 MB in size.
Presenters should place their files in the google folder that will be sent to presenters by email at the beginning of March. Please start your filename with the first author’s last name, and when you place your presentation in the folder, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and send us the google link to your presentation. If you do not receive the google folder link or have lost it, please email us and request it to be sent again.
In the spirit of the theme of the symposium, we may consider an alternate configuration for remote, asynchronous presentation besides the above. Please contact us with your specifics before March 17, and we can discuss any possibilities.
