Young people and adults learning together as peers is not common, despite research indicating that mutual learning would benefit both groups. A seemingly easy remedy would be to invite both groups to participate in professional conferences as equals.

This article describes some of those differences and steps that were taken that made the next conference more beneficial for both groups.
