NCER Unplugged

 

The NCER Unplugged event is a NCER member benefit that will provide investigators an opportunity to present early research ideas for feedback and suggestions once a quarter through 2022. The agenda of the event can easily change to accommodate protocol presentation as per annual NCER style of presentation to accommodate the needs of the investigator group. In addition, the NCER executive is continuing to review all protocols submitted to provide feedback on grants, implementation strategies or manuscripts.

 

The presentations will be modeled on the Pechakucha style, adapted for a 5 minute presentation (see more about Pechakucha as a presenting style here: https://www.pechakucha.com/). The idea is to be more like a narrative and less like a slide deck. Presenters will submit 10 slides with only graphics/visuals (no “background/results/conclusions”) and each slide with automatically progress every 30 seconds for a total presentation time of 5 minutes followed by facilitated discussion for 15 minutes. Any partial protocols or full protocols will be presented as per the NCER Annual Meeting format.

Here is an example of a Pechakucha style presentation by Stephanie VandenBerg:

The NCER executive would like to extend an opportunity for all to stay on after 3 pm EST for 30 mins for NCER networking. We will encourage breakouts and ability to move from room to room to catch up with colleagues.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR 12PM EST – 3:30PM EST
TUESDAY JULY 19TH

We invite investigators to email Stephanie VandenBerg stephanie.vandenberg@ucalgary.ca or Laurie Morrison laurie.morrison@sunnybrook.ca if you are interested in participating as a presenter.

 

The July session will be an open event and NCER membership is not required.
