Breakout Sessions (50 minutes)
Breakout Sessions represent the core of the conference offerings and feature a successful practice, program, or key issue. Breakout Sessions may include multiple presenters and are intended for 25-75 participants. Presenters are expected to engage participants in interactive learning activities, provide handouts, and be prepared to respond to post-conference requests for more information. Lecture-only presentations are strongly discouraged. Each Breakout Session room will be equipped with a laptop, data projector, speakers, and screen.
Roundtable Discussions (50 minutes)
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.
Preconference Seminars (3 hours)
Preconference Seminars are fee-based workshops that provide in-depth exposure to specific topics, deliver practical knowledge and applications, and link participants with a community of learners who share common interests. The selection of facilitators for Preconference Seminars is very competitive and is based on the workshop’s content, thoroughness of the proposed workshop design, and the expertise of the facilitator(s). Lecture-only presentations will not be considered. Preconference Seminar rooms will be equipped with a laptop, data projector, speakers, and screen. Preconference Seminars start at 1:00 Saturday afternoon.
