Policy for Safety in Presentations
OSEE promotes active learning at our conferences, but such learning must be structured so that it is safe for everyone. Presenters are expected to model safe practice at all times. Activities may need adjustment to suit the facilities. If you have any questions please speak to the conference chair.
Safety considerations apply to sessions involving:
Extreme hot or cold materials
Tools for cutting or building
Projectiles or moving objects
Electrical equipment (other than A/V)
Terms and Conditions
- OSEE may require modifications to your session either before or during the conference to ensure a safe experience for everyone.
- OSEE assumes no responsibility for loss of materials, equipment, supplies and personal effects brought to the conference site.
Selling Commercial Products in General Conference Sessions
As a subject organization OSEE encourages Teachers to help other Teachers. It is however against OSEE policy for speakers to sell products for personal profit in general conference sessions.
Speakers may distribute electronic versions of their material to session participants for a maximum fee of $2 per CD for cost recovery purposes only. These materials should be copyright-free. Speakers are still free to share print material with participants but we encourage sharing presentation material electronically through the handout section of our website.
If your presentation includes kits containing consumables, the contents and cost recovery fee of the kit must be approved by the Program Committee. Please include this fee information in your proposal in the “Materials Fee” section of the proposal form. The fee indicated in the “Materials Fee” section will be included in the session description of your session in the Conference Program so that attendees are aware of the fee.
In submitting your proposal you agree to abide by these guidelines.
Presenter registration procedure
Presenters receive complimentary registration for the day on which they speak.
Presenters may upgrade their registrations to full-conference registrations for the remaining days of the conference through registration on the website.
Policy Regarding Responsibility for Loss
OSEE assumes no responsibility for loss of materials, equipment, supplies and personal effects brought to the conference site.
