Event Format

Several roundtable discussions will happen concurrently in a large open room, where presenters will lead three 30-minute sessions, so participants can visit up to three tables during the 90 minutes.

💡 Breakout Sessions: Breakout Sessions are 45-minute sessions designed to allow presenters and facilitators to share information regarding successful educational practices, innovative uses of educational technology, or noteworthy programs and initiatives.

👥 Un-session: An Un-session is a 45-minute loosely structured session where faculty will create an agenda collaboratively. The central focus is on active dialogue, collaboration and/or creativity that invites participants to surface and share individual and collective expertise.
