town hall protocol

Town Hall discussions are collective spaces to share our visions and dreams for science education as a tool for social transformation. For these sessions, up to three questions are posed for a panel to consider reading policy, practice, or activism around a particular issue. These panels may include up to 12 participants representing diverse perspectives on the issue with various positionalities (e.g., educators, researchers, community members, community organizers, parents, students, etc.).

total time

75 minutes

Town Hall sessions are given extended time to accommodate a variety of participant perspectives around central idea or series of questions. 



The format is open and based on the goals of the presenter. Presenters will frame the conversation around three primary questions and choose to facilitate engagement with panelists through a variety of formats depending on the topic and goals of the presenters.

*Virtual Conference Support: Each session will have a designated facilitator and tech support individual to help session participants coordinate breakout rooms, presentation transitions, pertinent announcements, and sharing of resources. Please log into your session 15 minutes before the start time to test out any materials you'd like to share during your presentation, discuss your preferences related to breakout rooms, and communication of time alerts (e.g., 5, 3, 1 minutes left).

Science Educators for Equity Diversity and Social Justice is a 501(C)(3) public charity.
