Lightning Presentations are opportunities to provide a very short overview of a project, showcase an initiative or implementation, or highlight a key achievement or issue associated with their learning and teaching. Presentations are strictly limited to 5 minutes each in a group of four presenters. At the end of the four presentations, 10 minutes will be allocated for questions, comment and discussion.
