This workshop will be part case-study, part experiential learning, and part conversation. We will take a look at how the World Café conversational model was successfully used to bring a wide-ranging audience composed of students, teachers, parents, administrators, and community members together and inform strategic changes for a school district.

During this session, you will learn about what the World Café methodology is (and isn't), best practices for setting up a World Café and writing World Café questions. You'll find out how that school district's strategic initiatives were informed and enhanced by the World Café. We will discuss data output and analysis, and you will have time to practice crafting your own World Café question and participate in discussion with your colleagues.
