The Symposium programme consists of plenary sessions open to all attendees along with focused strands in the below categories. Registrants have the opportunity to select and follow one strand over the course of the two-day Symposium. This model allows for deeper learning through small groups of 30-35 people who attend the same sessions allowing continuous and concentrated dialogue within each respective strand. Dr. Allan Walker, Dr. Eeqbal Hassim and Ann Straub – experts in each of these areas - will facilitate the three strands helping to synthesise and draw out key ideas and findings across sessions. The following sessions are confirmed. Additional sessions will be added soon.
