I'd like to start off a thread with a few possibilities about the
format for next week.
a - Open Space: http://www.openspaceworld.org/cgi/wiki.cgi
In essence. Topics for discussion are written on flipchart paper and
groups are formed to discuss those topics.
b - World Café: http://www.theworldcafe.com/
Sounds like a coffee shop at WOMAD but it's not that disimilar to Open
Space, except participants are seated at tables "café" style, they
discuss a topic and then move, leaving one person at the table. This
is repeated a couple of times.
c - A volunteer or volunteer gives a talk and then a discussion
d - A different format.
No matter what format we choose, I would like to to have a space to
discuss what we would like future meetings to consist of.
Please let us know your thoughts.
