Our Concluding Cafes were an exciting new discussion component of the 2016 format.
The cafes provided a place for participants to have the conversations most relevant and pressing to them.
We have decided that instead of an Open Space Technology format, we would have scientists and educators for the same fundamental concepts together at the cafe tables. In this way we hoped to foster some real discussions of how you can apply each fundamental concept to your situation. We listened to the lightning talks and then had a chance to discuss your thoughts and ideas with the presenters during the cafes.
