  • Engage and Exchange sessions are 45-60 minutes to an audience of no more than 50 people, with content focused on case studies and solving real-world problems in a collaborative environment.
  • It will take place in a dynamic workspace within the Exhibit Hall, during exhibit hours.
  • Facilitators will be responsible for encouraging participants to recall and analyze information, share their personal experiences, draw conclusions, and/or practice new skills. The focus of an Engage and Exchange session is to have the attendees work together, and the role of the presenter(s) is to facilitate these discussions with less emphasis on a didactic presentation.
  • Facilitators will begin with a 5-10 minute presentation that is followed by 25-30 minutes of dedicated small group discussion (breakout groups) and concludes with 15-20 minutes of sharing and open discussion (depending on the assigned time slot, 45-60 minutes, determined by DIA).
  • Facilitators must adhere to DIA guidelines (see Program Development Guidelines and DIA Policy Concerning Promotion of Products and Services from the Podium at DIA-Sponsored Programs), as well as to manage the Engage and Exchange session.
  • Engage and Exchange sessions may have up to two (2) facilitators.
  • A Handout(s) are permitted for interactivity. A final version of the handout(s) must be submitted to DIA by Tuesday, May 7.
