BGCI’s 10th International Congress on Education in Botanic Gardens
Bringing nature to the city. Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the University of Warsaw Botanic Garden.
- Panel Session: In a panel session, the convenor introduces the speakers who then present on a particular topic or theme. A panel session typically includes up to 5 speakers. There will be time for discussion with the participants at the end of the session.
- Workshop: This type of session is structured for in-depth exploration of one topic. The session is practical, interactive and actively involves all the participants. The workshop can be a science demonstration, a game, a show or a short training course.
- Roundtable Session: This session has an extended number of speakers (from four to 20). Each speaker sits in a roundtable and presents their idea. This is followed by an in-depth discussion on each table. Time is left at the end to bring together all the different ideas discussed in each table. This session also requires a convenor to coordinate how it is run and bring the ideas together.
- World café: Participants are seated around tables and a series of conversational rounds begin. At the end the whole group gathers to share outcomes. Here you can find more information on what a World café is and guidelines on how to organise one http://www.theworldcafe.com/pdfs/cafetogo.pdf
- Project Poster Showcase: This is a showcase of education projects and other public engagement activities each described in a poster format.
Delegates are also encouraged to submit their ideas to present using a new session format. Contact us at EducationCongress@bgci.org to discuss your idea for your session.
See you in Warsaw!
