During WEFTEC® 2015, the Water Environment Federation (WEF; Alexandria, Va.) introduced a new format for education: the Interactive Knowledge Exchange (IKE). On Sept. 29, technical session 339 showcased IKE with 28 videos shown in rotation on four screens. More than 120 attendees were able to watch videos of their choice, step to the center of the room for networking, and converse with the creators of the videos as they were shown.

For its inaugural year, six water sector volunteers formed the IKE Symposium to coordinate programming. Those volunteers were Tina Wolff, of ARCADIS (Highlands Ranch, Colo.); Steven Tilson from Tilson & Associates LLC (Torrington, Conn.); Sue Lior from Lior Solutions (Philadelphia); Corinne Duckworth from Carollo Engineers (Walnut Creek, Calif.); Jennifer Welsch from Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District; and Kristen Buell from ARCADIS.

The IKE Symposium group chose six winning videos, and session attendees provided two “people’s choice” winners. WEF members can learn more about the winning videos in the archived IKE webcast. The winners are

        • I Don’t Flush” in the overall category,
