Panels Panels will address the colloquy’s general theme and more specific topics developed by the presenters’ faculty teams (check individual presenter pages for topics), as well as responding to the keynote, where appropriate.
Small Group Discussions Panels will be followed by small group discussions where members of the Rollins community (faculty, students, staff) will consider panelists’ insights as they relate to curriculum and will generate follow-up questions for the presenters. Faculty team members will serve as facilitators for each group.
