Facilitate a Cohort at DesignOps 2020September 30, 2020
Rosenfeld Media piloted the concept of attendee cohorts at a prior conference (Enterprise Experience 2020), and it was enough of a success that we’ll do the same at the 2020 DesignOps Summit!
Our belief is that attending together means learning together, and that attendees also will come away with stronger relationships than they would at other virtual conferences. We’re looking for volunteers to facilitate our DesignOps cohorts.
Pairs of cohort facilitators help small groups of randomly-assigned attendees (10-15) meet each other, establish common learning goals, check-in during the conference, and reconvene at the end to revisit those goals. These meetings take place in Zoom on a set schedule. Facilitators and attendees’ discussions take place throughout the conference via a private Slack channel.
Facilitators are expected to attend an orientation meeting, run their cohort’s meetings, and attend the full conference (October 21-23). In return, facilitators receive a complimentary ticket to attend the conference, and are listed on the conference website.
