In this session, teams will be brought together to begin developing action plans based on their discussions in Breakout 1 and from what other groups reported out. Individual applicants may rejoin their groups form Breakout 1 or select a new session in which to participate and will provide feedback to plans that teams develop. Each team will prepare a poster sheet that provides an outline of their plan. [For consistency of presentation, the posters could have main headings already filled out by staff, e.g., What We Plan To Do, Partners, Metrics. When complete, the posters are posted on the walls of the plenary meeting room for Gallery Walk.]
|TBD: The same committee members who facilitated first breakout sessions will facilitate these sessions.|
|3:15 pm||Refreshment Break, Networking, and Move to Plenary Room for Gallery Walk|
|3:45 pm West Hall and Room 120||Gallery Walk
Convocation participants move around the room and review posters. Each team stations a team member next to their poster to answer questions. (Two team members could trade off this task, so everyone has time to view the other posters.) Everyone is given Post-It note pads to write questions or suggestions related to the team plans. Posters with sticky notes are photographed for the
|convocation summary, and posters are returned to the teams, so they can benefit from the input. Posters will be photographed and added to the video showcase and the NAE website.|
|4:30 pm Rm. 120||Unconference Planning Town Hall
10 minutes: During this plenary, the cochairs will solicit ideas for topics from participants, and staff will write one unique idea at the top of each of 5–8 blank posters attached to the wall at the front of the room. Once the sheets have at least one primary idea on them, participants are asked to contribute only ideas that relate to or could be discussed logically with the main topic. Once the posters are completed, participants vote on the two topics they are most interested in, using colored dots.
|Moderator: Norman Fortenberry (committee cochair)|
