Frame introduces each topic with provocative Pecha Kucha style presentations.



Stir kicks off with provocative Pecha Kucha style presentations for each topic, as well as an introduction to the goals of the Symposium. This evening lays out how the upcoming sessions (Collect, Stir, and Share) all work together so that participants know what to expect from the weekend.

Pecha Kucha style presentations of accepted position statements outline each of the topic areas explored in the Collect and Stir sessions.

Presenters from a number of different disciplines speak, all interested in looking at new ways to solve problems. Participants will then use the information gathered from these presentations to inform their interests and schedule for the symposium.
