Too supplement my tweet:
1) If they know what you’re presenting, then the things that can be accomplished during the days increase. We have been trying to divide learning into procedure and technique as we prep our course creation, and this may be along a similar line?
2) Managing the information that comes in and what you’ll discuss will probably be pretty huge. I imagine with that many participants you’ll end up with tons of data.
Create data clouds so that people’s ideas can easily be thrown together/apart to be discussed instead of using f2f time for that
3) A collaborative doc to write out what/ why you’ll cover in the f2f time?
I know this may get out of hand, but as a good facilitator(s) it shouldn’t be too hard, right? I mean, if anyone(s) can do it, you and GS can, yes?
