Sessions must include opportunity for discussion e.g. question and answer period, asking participants to contribute their experience, “buzz” groups (2-3 minute discussions on an issue in small groups of 2-3 people), etc. It is recommended that the 45 minute session include about 25 to 30 minutes of content and 15 to 20 minutes for interaction with/among participants.
