Have you read Jared Spool's Five Indispensable Skills for UX Mastery ( http://www.uie.com/articles/indispensable_skills)? Number 5 on his list is
"Facilitating," but how are your skills as a facilitator? Do you know how to
help your team "move closer to success with every get together"?
This Saturday, August 7, BayCHI and Heather Gold are teaming up for a
day-long workshop on Tummeling: Creating Social Engagement for Interaction
Designers. Tummeling is about facilitating via conversation.
Innovative comedian Heather Gold explains basic differences
between presentation and conversation and the assumptions underneath
each. More entertainingly (and usefully) she demonstrates these ideas
by creating a great, relevant conversation in the room so that all can feel
Heather will explain how to tummel and how to specifically design for it.
This tutorial will emphasize how to use these techniques to design
for social engagement. The real-time web has a lot of interaction
between people, not just between people and graphics or interfaces. Learn
how to start with the social drivers to create the best space and conditions
