On each tables there is a table top displays of the questions we will be discussing. Each table would be addressing one research question at a time. The facilitators sitting with you will engage each group to promote conversation and dialogue. The recorder personnel sitting with you will manually record information to be presented to the overall facilitator during “The Harvest”. There is no audio recording. Conversation on a given question will last for about 15 minutes. You would then be enabled to move to other locations to explore other questions.
