following the presentation, the audience was divided into 5 “break-out” groups, with each group joined by one of the speakers and one of the event organizers. audience members in each group were invited to provide comments and share experiences in relation to the presentations and the workshop theme. each group generated a summary of findings. the workshop ended with a brief plenary that compiled the various group findings into a single document, with the expectation that the findings would be included in an outcome statement for future work.
