This will be a one-day workshop, split into two synchronous sessions to accommodate global time zones. Participants will be given the option to attend one or both sessions. Prior to our synchronous sessions, we will generate discussion topics, encourage participants to familiarize themselves with each other, and share favorite readings and resources through Padlet and Slack. In our synchronous sessions, we will meet through Zoom and document our conversations through Miro. Afterwards, we will leave the Slack active to encourage further discussion and provide a centralized online community.
Asynchronous pre-workshop activities
Two weeks prior to the start of our workshop, we will invite participants to propose and engage with discussion topics. We will use Padlet and Slack for informal discussion, which we will use as a starting point for our synchronous time together.
Synchronous workshop activities
As we have all had personal experience with Zoom fatigue, our virtual workshop will not follow the standard all-day commitment that in-person workshops allow for. Thus, we propose the following set of activities that allows for participants to engage in rich discussion, which are informed from our past experiences with virtual workshops. Below is our schedule, all times in ET:
11 – 11:30 a.m.: Introductions, speed dating activity for group norms setting
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.: Keynote by Dr. Bryan Dosono, Q&A + discussion
Dr. Bryan Dosono is a design researcher located in New York City. He received his Ph.D. in Information Science and Technology from the Syracuse University School of Information Studies and his B.S. in Human-Computer Interaction with Honors from the University of Washington Information School.
