A new program type premiering at the 2015 convention, the Idea Generator is an interactive, dynamic approach to considering potential solutions or ways of addressing a broad area of concern in our field. This year's topic is "#frompreptopractice: Narrowing the Gap Between What We Learn and What We Do". Facilitated by a "provocateur", the conversation will begin with a well-regarded panel of faculty and practitioners. After the dialogue is rolling along, members of the audience who have something to contribute can "tap-out" a current panel member to take their seat and join the conversation on the platform! This ever-evolving panel will help us consider new perspectives about this complex issue and perhaps create new ways forward to address it.
