I is for inclusive

Wicked Workshops must:
  • limit the effects of hierarchy
  • handle difficult people
  • encourage particpation from all
  • break the ice between participants
At the Euro IA conference we tried to ensure that the workshop sesison was inclusive by:
  • breaking people into smaller groups and using muleiple facilitators
  • encouraging everyone to contribute
  • asking people at the back to swap with people at the front
  • allowing people to add post-it notes if they didn't want to shout out
  • setting up this blog to get more feedback from those not present or less comfortable with talking in the group
