  • All sessions will be 50 minutes (please allow time for Q&A within this timeframe).
  • What best practices are you currently using?
  • What best practices need to be developed for the future?

  • Encourage engagement
  • Demonstrate application to the work of the participants
  • Be grounded in research where applicable
