A break-out session is a small (25-35 conference participants) discussion-based session led by one of our conference speakers/experts. Each break-out session has a particular theme or topic, and the speakers encouarge dialogue and discussion with conference participants. These sessions are usually held over the course of a two-hour period, during which a single attendee will participate in two different break-out sessions. Speakers remain in their designated classrooms, and conference attendees switch rooms at the appropriate time (much like changing classes in school!). These sessions are meant to provide close access to our CWI faculty, and provide participants the chance to speak with experts in a smaller venue -- a chance they might not have in a large auditorium.
