Learn to Design Participation-Rich Conferences

We’ve known for a long time that lectures are terrible ways to learn, and that today’s attendees are no longer satisfied to sit and listen to lectures. If you want to design conferences where learning, connection, and engagement take place, you need to build in participation.

Attend Participate!

Participate! shows you how to design participation-rich conferences through direct experience of participatory meeting techniques. During the workshop you’ll experience those techniques first-hand, every one followed by a debrief and short “theory bites” session that covers the key concepts and background. To help you master them, the design techniques will be introduced in the order they’d appear during a participation-rich conference.
