Faculty & Speaker Guidelines

Faculty Guidelines

You know a thing or two about approaches commonly refered to as Evidence-Based (EB)? We are interested!

If you can speak on EB approaches relative to programs, models, practices, policies, treatments, management, and such, we would like to talk with you.

For the upcoming conference we are interested in experts and practicing professionals who know their stuff in the following topic areas;

  • Individual engagement skills
  • case management
  • family engagement practices
  • supports and systems
  • trauma
  • career services
  • implementation practice
  • life skills
  • cognitive-behavioral approaches

The following guidelines are in place to assure smooth sailing from start to finish.

SPEAKER/PRESENTER ROLE
As a professional you assume key responsibilities when you agree to participate in our workshop education program. These commitments help to give workshop education its quality and consistency. As a speaker, you agree to do the following:

  • PROVIDE a high quality education program, which includes current, accurate and relevant information on the topic.
  • RECOGNIZE that as a trainer your relationship with Joyfields Institute is as an Independent Contractor.
  • HONOR the Speaker’s Agreement in all circumstances.
  • REFRAIN from verbally marketing any of your products or services immediately before, during, or after your session(s) and further refrain from giving away or raffling any products or services during your session.
  • PREPARE abstract of training materials by specified deadline
  • ARRIVE prompt and prepared
  • COMMUNICATE with Joyfields Institute upon arrival at workshop site via phone, email or text messagelive workshop
  • CONFIRM travel & lodging arrangements with Joyfields Institute

SPEAKER “TO DO” LIST
Much of the information about workshop responsibilities is included in the Call for Speakers (CFS) form or would have been communicated in conversations with one of our contacts. You may also receive a Speaker Agreement.

You will be asked to:

  • Provide an electronic copy of your session handout
  • Verify audio/visual requirements
  • Provide a short biography to promote you on-site and electronically
  • Review the session goals and objectives submitted on your CFS
  • Provide a photo (head shot preferred):
    • .jpg (high resolution) file
    • 5x7 color photo at 300dpi or equivalent (originals preferred)

SPEAKER HANDOUT

Attendees expect a handout. Historically sessions without handouts tend to receive lower evaluation ratings. When developing your session material, please;

  • Include your title and name as a header (in a smaller font) on the first slide
  • Number each page
  • State session learning objectives at the beginning, using the statement: After completing this session the attendee will be able to . . .
  • Provide a course outline or table-of-contents on page 1
  • Update content as appropriate so you are presenting the most current message on your topic. Make sure all copyrighted terms or materials are used correctly within the handout
  • Make sure that material relates to stated objectives and follows the order in which it will be presented
  • Focus on practical applications
  • Develop material that is useful during the session
  • Create a handout that is a handy reference after the session
  • Include note-taking space in the handout
  • Consider a format that is a skeletal outline of the session
  • Submit electronic copy of the handout (in Word or PowerPoint format) to [email protected] by deadline agreed to in writing or verbally.

Please DO NOT;

  • Include a promotional flyer as part of the handout
  • Address topics that are not part of your stated objectives
  • Theorize - ideas should relate to real-world situations
  • Include a cover page, since Joyfields develops standard cover pages for all handouts

Speaker Biography

Keep your biography short - something that can be read aloud in one to three minutes. Make it a professional and friendly introduction. When you prepare your biography, make sure it answers the question: “Why am I qualified to speak on this subject?” A good biography builds credibility. As a final touch: Include something unique or personal about yourself.
