Webinar Review Criteria

Proposals will be reviewed based on the following criteria:

  • Is the topic and presentation innovative and thought-provoking with the goal of moving product stewardship programs forward?
  • Is the presentation clear, well-organized and well-written?
  • Are learning objectives clearly identified?
  • Does the presentation provide practical real-world ideas, tools, techniques and/or processes?
  • Does the presentation encourage and foster discussion and audience engagement?

Commercialization

  • Presentations cannot be sales pitches. Presentations that appear to be selling, promoting, or advertising services or products are not acceptable.

As we aim to provide the highest quality learning experiences with knowledgeable and skilled speakers, please note that we reserve the right to make adjustments to any session that does not meet these items above.

Learning Objectives

Proposals should include three learning objectives that define what attendees will have learned by the end of your session. These objectives can focus on changes in the attendees’ knowledge, skills, and/or attitudes. Learning objectives should identify demonstrable behavior. It’s not enough to say they will “understand” something. How will they demonstrate that understanding? Learning objectives begin with the phrase “At the end of this session, attendees will be able to…” This is followed by an action verb and description of the attendees’ changed behavior.

Learning Levels

It is important to identify the level of content in order to help learners identify whether the education is appropriate to what they need to learn. The identifiers below will help the audience determine for whom the content is designed for:

  • Novice - new to the job, role, or task, with no or limited knowledge of the content. Learning need: Training
  • Competent - can perform to basic standards; has a thorough understanding of the content area but limited practical/work experience in the application of the content/concepts. Learning need: Practice, Coaching
  • Experienced - has a thorough understanding of the content area and work experience including application and evaluation of the content/concepts in a variety of contexts; can vary performance based on unique situations. Learning Need: Access to Resources
  • Expert - has extensive content knowledge and deep understanding of their discipline, notices features and meaningful patterns, can reason through new information, can invent new or better ways to do a job. Learning Need: Collaboration, Problem Solving

If you have any questions, please contact Kathryn Christoe, Program Manager, Education via email.
