If you would like to volunteer in the Reflection Pool, please respond to this short survey and indicate your preferred days(s) and time(s) as soon as possible. You may also drop in at your leisure.
The Reflection Pool will consist of multiple group meeting spaces that are designed to promote and support post-presentation meetings and work sessions. Our aim with the Reflection Pool is to give attendees a place to start drafting plans for implementation once they arrive back in their schools.
During your time in the Reflection Pool, you may engage with attendees in their discussions and offer feedback, or you may simply allow them to ask you questions about your research and/or practice.
A schedule listing all presenters and their assigned times will be published closer to the event date.
