When does Alexa refreshes an access token?

Does alexa refreshes and access token only when the skill is invoked or even when the user is offline? What happens when the access token expires when the user is in a conversation?

Can I assume that the access_token will not change while the user is in session?

Yes, you can make that assumption.

It refreshes the token significantly prior to the expiration date in order to avoid this scenario.
