Workshop agreements

The right moment

  • There is a conversation that only the people in this room can have. Find it! 
  • The right people are here. If the session is small, enjoy the intimacy! 
  • Principle of two feet: you choose where to be. If you need to take a break and come back to the session or log off, that’s totally fine. 

We are all experts

  • Be concise and provide new information
  • Make room for everyone to share

Honor the process

  • Utilize the chat box to contribute your questions and comments
  • Stay on topic
  • Honor the time schedule
  • Moderator goes with participant energy – okay to change plans

Minimize distractions

  • All are welcome to participate in a workshop with or without your video on
  • Please keep microphone muted unless you are speaking
  • Side conversations for translation only

We are all students

  • Be open minded
  • Differing views welcome, diversity brings life
  • No questions are “stupid”
  • Listen with respect
