Call for Workshops

As part of the Conference program development, the IFA and COTA Queensland are calling for workshop submissions within the Conference thematic tracks:

  1. Disasters and Older People
  2. Age Friendly Cities and Communities
  3. Care and Support for Older People (Community and Residential)
  4. Elder Abuse, Law and Rights
  5. Income Protection and Security

The purpose of a workshop is to provide a participatory opportunity for a small group of participants to acquire knowledge about a particular topic or receive training in a skill set.

Each workshop session will be 90 minutes, consisting of two to three presenters and structured to include:

  • A general description of the organised session with its purpose and motivation;
  • An outline of the material to be covered in the workshop;
  • Authors and title of each contribution; and
  • Learning objectives, clearly identifying the outcomes or actions participants can expect to demonstrate as a result of participating in the workshop.

It is possible for proposers to make a case for a 180-minute workshop comprising two consecutive 90-minute sessions. It is not envisioned that this will be the norm however.

Please refer to the abstract template and guidelines below, and then submit your abstract here.
