KM4Dev, is holding its 13th monthly knowledge cafe next week. On 18 February at 16.00-17.30 CET, we will be Bringing peer assists online: let’s do it! featuring Nancy White and Katrina Pugh, facilitated by Jorge Chavez-Tafur.

Using practices informed by Liberating Structures, we will first examine the benefits and challenges of peer assistance methods using the User experience fishbowl which, unlike more typical fishbowls, includes a breakout process where the members of the “bowl” generate solutions and useful questions for the “fish.” This will provide some exposition on the topic. Then we will switch to Troika consulting where it only takes three people to provide valuable peer assist — and recognizes that even people without shared context or experience may have useful insights. Finally, we will generate our insights and lessons learned with a chat based What? So what? Now what?
