Roundtable discussions provide a more personal and interactive setting for exploring key issues. Discussion leaders facilitate substantive discussions or small group activities. These discussions accommodate up to ten participants, are limited to two discussion leaders, and cannot accommodate any technology beyond a battery-powered laptop computer. Numerous roundtable discussions take place simultaneously in the same area.
Sample Roundtable Discussions

Beyond Us and Them: Engaging the Perspectives of Immigrant Students
