Below is a list of different formats that the participant-led sessions can assume. However, this is not an exhaustive list and participants are encouraged to be as creative as they wish when it comes to the format of their sessions.
A group discussion consists of a group conversation centred around one topic that is stated at the beginning of the session. It is important to note that the session leader has the choice to make a brief presentation before the discussion begins to define the scope of the topic selected.
At the beginning of a debate, the session leader should introduce a topic of discussion and a premise. Attendees should then decide if they are keen on arguing for or against the premise. The session leader could then become a moderator to mediate the conversation between both sides of the argument.
A lecture involves a session leader speaking of a topic throughout most of the session. At the end, the leader should allow some time for attendees to ask a few questions.
A demonstration is a session in which its leader demonstrates a space-related item or product, explains its significance and lets the other attendees have a look at it.
