The flood of ideas and data created in a workshop or meeting can be overwhelming - for both the group and the facilitator! As a facilitator, you may not be familiar with the subject and have little idea about the quality of what has been created. And anyway, it's the group's data... This workshop will explore practical ways that facilitators can engage groups to THEME useful ideas and HARVEST experiences into formats for later use by the group and other stakeholders.
- Gain insight into the role that Theming and Harvesting can play in helping group meetings be effective
- Explore a range of techniques that facilitators can use to help groups process large amounts of information
- Consider the ways in which meeting software technologies can be helpful for large or remote groups
