Focus Session Submissions - 2016 IAMSE Meeting
Share |

Thank you for submitting an abstract for a Focus Session for the upcoming IAMSE Meeting to be held in Leiden, The Netherlands June 4-7, 2016. Focus sessions will be held on all days of the conference. As there is a large number of presenters involved with the various sessions scheduled, we will only be able to address presenter conflicts with the first author. It will be the responsibility of the remaining presenters resolve schedule conflicts.

 

Definition of a Focus Session: Definition of a Focus Session: The purpose of a 90-minute Focus Session is to “focus in” on a specific topic in small group discussion format. Groups of 10-50 individuals consider a particular topic in an interactive format. Formats can be variable. For instance, the Session Leader may arrange for the pros and cons of a particular issue to be presented by a mini-panel discussion. Alternately, the group may be subdivided and certain tasks assigned to be developed for summary during the last 20-minutes of the session. Discussion in a paradigm of professional development is the goal, so not more than one-third of the time is to be used for formal presentation (half of the time if using panel discussion format).
