Learning, Evidence, Experts

How do we ensure that deliberators have consulted, understood and thought about the evidence provided?

Real-Life Cases

Mel: printed materials delivered to the households + uploaded prior to the first sessions
Produce a resources pack mailed for participants ahead of online sessions

Ideas

Graham: High Quality Presentations
Many: Opportunity to make better/longer/deeper learning phases
Marcin: STUDY SMALL GROUPS: maximum 1.5 hours, if participants agree. They could be organised 3–4 times a week, and spread over around two months (depending on the issue complexity)
Many: Quizz/ Surveys

Experts and “Speakers/stakeholders”: how to involve? (presentations, Q&As, etc.)

Real-Life Cases

Charrettes Go Virtual: Missoula: Create “office hour time,” which would be time that participants could use to talk to experts to receive clarification/ more information about the topics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h8tVs68iO4&feature=youtu.be 

Ideas

Short inputs via shared desktops or short talks; advise to be short, clear and not too
complex.
Videos/Very good presentations/Small Groups for Speed Dialogue/World Caffe?
Carson: do more two-person conversations, rather than one-person presentations. We know from online learning work that two people are more engaging.

Can more of the learning activities be done asynchronously?

Real-Life Cases

Ideas

Marcin/Poland: Record presentations. Provide online materials. People to watch anytime convenient. People will gather for online study group (7 people plus facilitators)
Video platform – so that participants can watch videos of evidence (before coming to Zoom rooms to discuss)

Critical Thinking and Citizen Mode

Real-Life Cases

Ideas

Marcin/Poland: “Mock up Citizen Assembly” use a not related topic, but still relevant.

Methods of Other Information Gathering. (E.G. Walking Tours)

Real-Life Cases

Charrettes Go Virtual: Missoula: Create graphics that give participants a visual representation of concepts/ make short videos that explain the graphics/ concepts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0h8tVs68iO4&feature=youtu.be

Ideas

Annabelle: Vlog style tour of the site that could be sent to participants.
