“Using only ex cathedra gets the audience drunk…
even with nicely designed powerpoints”.
(A.Z. Project Manager)
For a conference to become interactive, it is important that participants get moving, not only in their thoughts, but also in dialogues and especially if possible by getting up and interacting.
For this reason, the ex cathedra (during introduction) is not the only modality used : the Action Methods according to J.L. Moreno are used in an interactive conference and bring a multitude of techniques, a multitude of ways and means, constructed and constructive.
This methodology, which includes ex cathedra moments, facilitates the dynamic energizing interactivity and the playful and intense involvement of the conference.

of what J.L. Moreno’s method allows during a symposium including conferences, workshops, and plenary sessions.
