The words of the day were “collaborative groups”. Notes, practice, and implementation were on the agenda. This should give some needed guidelines to making each of the groups work more productively. Group roles were also chosen, responsibility usually leads to jobs well done.

Everyone took an active part and will be ready for tomorrow and the research groups that will come in the near future.
