These events will run in separate rooms from the main lecture theatre and last 30 minutes each. They will be lead by an expert who is expected to talk for about 5 or 10 minutes, then the facilitator will provoke the involvement of the delegates. The key to this working properly is to have effective facilitators. The purpose of these events is to encourage skill sharing. After each 30 minute session delegates rotate around the other sessions.
