Grading comment
I think this is appropriate, I did not find German sites with breakout session. Later in the text they were called workshops which I left in English of course.

Breakout Session


Explanation:
Ist wieder so ein superhipper Ausdruck, der meistens nicht übersetzt wird. Wenn es im Kontext nur so wimmelt von Anglizismen, wird das auch gut reinpassen.

Ziemlich viele Hits für "Breakout Session" bei Google...

Stefan Brechtel: Schlecht. 'Arbeitsgruppen' ist viel zu lahm um die Dynamik einer 'breakout session' zu erfassen.

Judith Schmid: Kommt auf den Kontext an. Bei Dotcoms oder sonstwie modernen Firmen klingt Arbeitsgruppen viel zu althergebracht.
