Panel Discussion (45-minutes, 1-Discussion Leader with 3-4 panelists): Four to five connected topics are represented on a panel, which also includes a chair and three to four discussing. The chair introduces the panel, manages the time for each presentation and ensures that the discussion is polite and productive. Each panelist presents an abbreviated version of his or her topic followed by facilitated comments, questions, and discussion. The format of the panel is determined by the discussion leader in collaboration with panelists.
