12:30 – 3:00 p.m.
This exciting time will involve the audience (including speakers) at tables with 6 people at each table. We will use a variation of the World Café Process. Those at tables discuss what they thought were the primary takeaways from the conference. Persons change tables every 20 minutes for 3 cycles. Then one person at each table presents a summary of what was discussed. These presentations will be captured on video. This will be a very meaningful session with a lot of learning, sharing, and getting to know each other.
After 3:00 p.m.
We will see how many people remain in Santa Fe and would like some “birds of a feather” time. That means you suggest a topic or issue or problem for which you would like some round table discussion time. Topics are asked for and then assigned to a table. Those who wish to join in can do so.
