Presentations will be about 20 minutes with 10 minutes Q&A. Panel discussions will be 45 minutes. Proposals for 3-hour pre-conference workshops are also welcome.

We welcome presentations that discuss using technology to foster and strengthen communities, invite multicultural exchange and growth, and motivate positive social change via meaningful, contextualized instruction while working toward improving and resolving real-world human rights challenges. We welcome a variety of perspectives and encourage presentations that report on current research or work in progress.
