The morning session consists of three parts: keynote speeches, introduction of the project and demonstrations of educational theatre and drama.
The afternoon session consists of brief inspirational roundtable discussions, each relating to one of the key competencies. Every roundtable will begin with a brief summary of key research findings, followed by the presentation of two-four documented practices and evaluated by a discussion. We plan to have a lively debate in each panel.
