Attendee Cohorts: Attending Together Means Learning TogetherAugust 19, 2020
Update (August 29): Our cohorts are now set up; check out our list of cohorts and facilitators here.
We’re excited to let you know about something new we’re trying at this year’s conference. Something we feel will be a “Zoom fatigue-buster”: attendee cohorts.
We’re convinced that when you attend together, you learn together. So we’re assembling cohorts of 8-12 people that are bound by a common interest or learning goal for the conference. That way you can attend with colleagues with whom you share something in common: you may all be UX writers, or junior managers, or work in healthcare, or identify as Latinx… As long as there are enough of you who want to learn together, we’ll make your cohort happen.
Each cohort will work with its own facilitator, be introduced and set common goals at the start of the conference, revisit those goals at the end (via Zoom), and attend together in a private Slack channel in between. You’ll learn from each other as well as from our fantastic speakers. And you’ll walk away with great new contacts and friendships—maybe even more than what you might get from an in-person conference.
We are making cohorts available to registered EX2020 attendees at no additional cost, and we’ll do our best to accommodate as many cohorts as we can. Questions? Already registered and haven’t chosen a cohort? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
