Call for Contributions & Guidlines for Presentations

The board of FEDORA and the Programme Committee of the Summer University 2011 have the honour and pleasure of inviting you and your colleagues to participate in the programme of the Summer University.

The theme of this event is: Modern Times: Counselling students in the 21st century. We think this is an ideal opportunity for us to reflect on our role as student counsellors in this fascinating era! The modern era we live in influences counselling in relation to career guidance, educational guidance, psychological counselling and therapy and in how we think about inclusion.

Of course you can participate just by coming to Ioannina but maybe you and your colleagues can contribute in an even more active way. We offer the following formats:

  1.  Poster: summary (text  and illustration) in a poster format as an invitation to colleagues to exchange experiences and ideas
  2.  Oral presentation: 20 minutes input (maximum) and 10 minutes for discussion
  3.  Interactive workshop: one hour or, if particularly motivated, a slot of two hours is possible.
  4.  Thematic Symposium (TS): a coordinator or promoter composes a more or less coherent programme by inviting national and / or international colleagues to contribute to a specific theme (e.g. internet facilities in counselling, changing labour market, (test) diagnosis in educational counselling, specific dysfunction etc.). Ideally a TS is composed of 3 or 4 contributions which results in about 1 hour of presentation time and 1 hour of discussion involving exchange of ideas and experiences.

When choices have to be made, the Programme Committee will give priority to contributions related to the conference theme (Modern Times!) and to the Thematic Symposia.

Proposals have to be written according to the prescriptions of the proposal document, sent along with this invitation. Coordinators of a Thematic Symposium also have to fill in the Thematic Symposium proposal document.
