Panel Discussion. An open session with a panel of 3-4 individuals informally discussing a variety of theories or perspectives on the given topic.
Roundtable. An open discussion anchored by brief, 5-7 minute presentations. Active participation encouraged.
Lightning Talks. A fast-paced open session with many concise presentations delivered under a tight time limit.
Workshop. A limited enrollment full or half-day session that allows interaction and focused instruction with participants. Workshops usually teach or refine archival skills. Workshops will be held Thursday, April 28, 2016.
