Welcome to our Facilitators for Pandemic Response group - yet again
Howdy friends, old and new. WELCOME!!!!
For those of you moving over from our Google Groups, welcome again. To those of you just joining us, welcome!
At this moment there is no structure or direction for our potential work together, just the gathering moments. While we gather, it might be useful to start thinking about where online facilitation and technology stewardship, and for me, particularly, Liberating Structures, can help people meet remotely. We can notice and surface patterns of need and then respond.
So some of the areas that come to mine where we can identify and mobilize for need are:
I have also set up one initial Google doc for resources, but we'll have to get a little more organized on that soon. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NyrEU7n6IUl5rgGiflx_dK8CrdoB2bwyyl9XG-H7iw8/edit# Maybe someone wants to start organizing that.
I have a Zoom instance we can use to organize some initial synchronous conversations, but my instinct is we need both sync and async, and probably break ourselves down into disappearing work groups - find a job, go do it, come back!
If one of these or something else calls you, step into that stream. Start a new discussion thread, or if there is a better platform, just link us to the new place.
This is not a matter of centralization, but of connection, learning and mutual support. Weave away!
Be creative. Be yourselves. Make a difference!
Sorry about the move for those of you who started on Google -- you always have my gratitude!
