Title: Summary

Abstract: Three score and five hours ago we met together for the first time, more or less strangers to each other. Since that time we have talked, gossiped, mildly flirted, consumed 2, 000 cups of coffee, walked through the lovely gardens, and before dinner have enjoyed a drink together. Out of this has come group identification that is at once transitory and durable. Memory of specific things will be fleeting but the enrichment that is the residue of the experience will be long lasting. We have been engaged in an educational enterprise. Education has a dynamic and organic quality which means that what happens is more or less unpredictable. We can make some guesses and have some hopes as to what will transpire here but we can never be sure as to precisely what will happen. So in a way summaries are devised to look back and see what the dimension and the character of the educational experience has been.
