The World Café Hosting Fundamentals course will be delivered online, using state-of-the-art interactive distance-learning technology (both synchronous and asynchronous).
The course will use the structure of a World Café, featuring coursework in rotating "tables" of four using Moodle's asynchronous forum technology and regular synchronous whole-class study groups using video-conferencing technology GoToMeeting.
Required "real time" Sessions
Sept 29th, & Nov 17th (both 9-11am Pacific Time) Attendence is required for these two sessions.
In addition we will be offering a special World Cafe with Juanita Brown on November 10th (9-11:30am Pacific), and synchronous weekly 1.5 hour study groups w/ David Isaacs and other special guests using GoToMeeting video-conferencing, on October 5, 19th, 26th, and November 5th. Attendence at these events is optional, but they have been extermely popular and attendance is highly recommended.
The course will be very interactive and you will be expected to participate fully. The course will take approx. 2-5 hours a week.
This academically rigorous, highly interactive online course is designed for serious students who would like a solid understanding of the World Café method and philosophy and want to work with senior practitioners and their peers to learn how to host powerful and effective World Cafés.
