Open Space

Date and Time: 
2015 April 15 @ 3pm
FL2 Cafeteria Atrium

Open Space is an approach that enables groups of any size to address complex, important issues and achieve meaningful results quickly. In Open Space meetings and events, participants create and manage their own agenda of parallel working sessions around a central theme of strategic importance. Conference participants will have the opportunity to apply Open Space technique to self-organize and discuss relevant topics with other meeting attendees. A space to write down ideas, questions, and discussion topics will be available throughout the first two days of the conference. These lists of topics and ideas will be used to organize breakout groups and follow up sessions. This is a great chance to have deeper conversations around topics of interest and make new connections with colleagues in relevant areas of work.
