Lunch

Please pick up your boxed lunch in the Great Hall and either join us for the World Cafe or enjoy your lunch and some break/work time in the West Court.

World Cafe presenters and participants should quickly pick up a box lunch in the East Court and go directly to their table in the adjacent Lecture Room.  We want to maximize every available minute for discussion.

In addition to chairs at the tables, there will be some additional chairs around the edge of the Lecture Room that participants can move.

What is the World Cafe?
The World Café (http://www.theworldcafe.com/) is a program that facilitates “conversations that matter” by encouraging creative thinking and collaboration. The program was created by the founders of The World Café Community Foundation, a non-profit organization that seeks to promote effective communication as a way to bring about positive change in businesses and communities.

The Modified World Café Process being utilized for the T Summit

  1. The Presenters (one or more assigned to each table) will begin by summarizing their scholarly and/or professional work and findings and provide a written one pager (recommended) to attendees at table.   
  2. Each small group will have 30 minutes to discuss the presentation topics, and attendees are encouraged to ask questions and engage in a thoughtful dialogue during the session.
  3. When time is up, meeting attendees can rotate to a different table/topic.
    1. Presenters will remain at table and “re-do” the prior session and share any insights gleaned from prior session

Modified World Café Principles

These Modified World Café Principles were crafted to ensure that participants get the most out of their discussion groups:

  1. Set the context: The Presenter must clearly articulate the project’s purpose and goals and make sure that all participants are given sufficient information to possess rudimentary understanding of project.
  2. Create a hospitable space: The Presenter should create an informal environment in which participants feel welcomed and at ease with one another.
  3. Explore questions that matter: The Presenter should identify a few thought-provoking questions that participants can answer. This will help the group remain focused, and encourage creative thinking and the sharing of ideas. 
  4. Encourage everyone’s contribution: Conversation leaders should encourage all participants to contribute to the process however they would like.
  5. Connect diverse perspectives: Offer participants a chance to join other conversations. By exchanging ideas and accepting input from various perspectives, the group will be able to identify the most creative and innovative solutions.
  6. Listen for patterns and insights: Presenters should work to make sure that participants are actively listening to one another.
