Main Plenary: Creating Dialogic Sensemaking Through Anticipational Fluidity I Friday June 28th, 9:15 - 10:00
How do we work with differences in our unfolding relational encounters with each other?
This is an issue we all face in our professional and personal lives. I will explore this question through the lens of dialogic sensemaking and offer ‘sensitizing resources’ as ways of generating possibilities for moving on.

Closing Plenary: Social Construction and Collaborative Practice: The Third Generation I Saturday June 29th, 17:45 - 18:45
This talk will scan the development of constructionist ideas in the context of professional practice, from their emergence to their current realization. We move here from an early emphasis on liberation, to a focus on the potentials for discursive reconstruction. The emerging generation explores discourse as relational action, opening new vistas for collaborative practice.
