#lrnchat
08:47:29 pm learner4eva: @LnDDave No collaboration? Inclusion? #Lrnchat
08:47:38 pm Tracy_Parish: @LnDDave Most often yes. Full of chatter and less connecting, collaborating, ideating, etc. #lrnchat
08:47:55 pm LnDDave: RT @learner4eva: @LnDDave No collaboration? Inclusion? #Lrnchat <<< Not usually.
08:47:56 pm MichelleLBaker: @LnDDave – Ditto. Sad. #lrnchat

08:48:29 pm trchandler: @willchinda we had to take it step further today and actually take our dirty looks in the room #lrnchat
08:48:40 pm KathyKitch: best mtgs have been short huddles; key topics-updates-go #lrnchat
08:48:44 pm LnDDave: Q1) Meetings are ‘supposed’ to be about information exchange and collaboration. Sounds like a learning opportunity to me. #lrnchat
08:49:00 pm LnDDave: RT @nickfloro: Q1 – Also key to understand each participants roll and a moderator to keep the meeting moving… #lrnchat
08:49:24 pm MichelleLBaker: Q1) Unfortunate that it’s not just any one company or culture. Such a universal issue. #lrnchat
08:49:32 pm kellygarber: RT @KathyKitch: best mtgs have been short huddles; key topics-updates-go #lrnchat
08:49:47 pm learner4eva: @LnDDave How do we consciously do better to get inclusion of diverse thought and collaboration? #Lrnchat
08:49:49 pm iHeartLiteracy: @LnDDave I agree – many meetings seem like a waste of time as the info could be communicated more efficiently #lrnchat
08:50:20 pm nickfloro: RT @KathyKitch: best mtgs have been short huddles; key topics-updates-go #lrnchat (via @kellygarber) > Love it
08:50:39 pm LnDDave: Q1) Part of the reason people don’t learn at meetings is that they walk in with the expectation that it’s a waste of time. #lrnchat
08:51:09 pm brianinroma: RT @Tracy_Parish: RT @hjarche: @lrnchat What’s a meeting? Is that where ideas go to to die? #lrnchat <=== Lol
08:51:13 pm learner4eva: Do we want top down info only or collaboration? We can drive the flow #Lrnchat
08:51:13 pm chet_stevenson: Some people like meetings, some don’t. The challenge is to find a balance so that everyone appreciates the time spent. #lrnchat
08:51:59 pm trchandler: @LnDDave that’s so true. And the more they believe it’s a waste a time, the more they seem to draw it out longer. #lrnchat
08:52:20 pm LnDDave: Q1) It’s also hard to learn if you have no idea what the purpose is walking into it. #lrnchat
08:53:08 pm Dave_Ferguson: @chet_stevenson I’d say a challenge is “why don’t they like them?” 80% will answer “waste of time.” No “balance” there. #lrnchat
08:53:19 pm nickfloro: Q1) Part of reason people don’t learn at meetings is that they walk in with expectation it’s a waste of time. #lrnchat via @LnDDave Good pt
08:53:39 pm chris_saeger: Q1) sorry to be late to the meeting. I lrned that ppl who set up meetings (virtual) should pay attn. to design and how 2 use tools #lrnchat
08:54:15 pm Dave_Ferguson: People expect that meetings waste time just as they expect that elevators travel between floors: past experience. #lrnchat
08:54:48 pm learner4eva: RT @chris_saeger: q1) I lrned that ppl who set up meetings (virtual) should pay attn. to design and how 2 use tools #Lrnchat
08:54:51 pm agilistine: Q1) Don’t waste time on status reports #tip #lrnchat
08:55:20 pm willchinda: @LnDDave Maybe the best meetings are ones where nothing is accomplished. Info exchange can be done efficiently in email or 1on1. #lrnchat
08:55:32 pm nickfloro: Q1 virtual meeting partcpts- nice thing about using a tablet is that the user is focused on content bc smaller screen, love flex #lrnchat

08:55:49 pm LnDDave: RT @lrnchat: Q2) How can meetings be better learning experiences? #lrnchat
08:56:11 pm Tracy_Parish: Having goals going in to the mtg helps. “today we are solving prob X”. Curbing tangents also important. Stay on track. #lrnchat

08:56:22 pm KathyKitch: @learner4eva Do we want top down info only or collaboration?A: Collaborating online works great for our work w/ focus &intention #lrnchat

08:57:44 pm nickfloro: Q2 By forcing users to listen to one person go on and on and have 0 participation – LOL #Lrnchat

09:06:43 pm KathyKitch: @LnDDave “getting everyone involved in presenting.” = perfect #lrnchat
09:07:02 pm trchandler: Should meetings be learning experiences? To me good meetings are about getting stuff done. #lrnchat
09:07:06 pm LnDDave: Q2) provide appropriate supporting materials; nothing worse than someone who rambles on endlessly about stats. #lrnchat
09:08:20 pm LnDDave: @trchandler I agree. I’d add that ‘getting stuff dome’ is often the most powerful of learning experiences. #lrnchat
09:08:32 pm MichelleLBaker: Q2)Lead by example. You know, the old “be the change…” quote.😉 #lrnchat
09:09:02 pm learner4eva: @trchandler Depends on culture. Tell-do; coaching- learning. Both can accomplish tasks but the later promotes growth, learning #Lrnchat
09:09:28 pm trchandler: In what ways? RT @LnDDave: @trchandler I agree. Id add that getting stuff dome is often the most powerful of learning experiences. #lrnchat

09:10:15 pm chet_stevenson: @MichelleLBaker Does leading by example lead to more learning? #lrnchat
09:10:17 pm trchandler: @learner4eva agree learning can happen anywhere. But should that be the purpose of a meeting? #lrnchat
09:10:24 pm lrnchat: Q3) How do you prepare to get the most – and learn more – from a meeting? #lrnchat
09:10:54 pm trchandler: RT @lrnchat: Q3) How do you prepare to get the most – and learn more – from a meeting? #lrnchat
09:11:23 pm LnDDave: @trchandler Actually doing work, especially collaboratively, is a powerful, impactful, and natural way to learn. #lrnchat
09:11:25 pm xpconcept: #lrnchat Q3) tend to convey inf or resolve with lg grps what should be done in small grps. Use gathering to celebrate + inspire + empower.
09:11:29 pm learner4eva: @trchandler Depends. Maybe wrong title for those moments #Lrnchat
09:11:32 pm Tracy_Parish: @trchandler getting it done involves learning to listen, communicate, share, lead, follow, collaborate, etc. #lrnchat
09:11:35 pm trchandler: @lrnchat Q3) taking notes and sending out recaps at the end helps me get the most out of a meeting. #lrnchat

09:13:12 pm chet_stevenson: Q3) My fires are put out so I can focus on the meeting. I bring a pen and paper – and focus on what’s being said. #lrnchat
09:13:26 pm trchandler: @Tracy_Parish agreed. Just see that as the side benefit instead of the main purpose. #lrnchat
09:13:31 pm Tracy_Parish: We were tasked to find better inclusion methods. Our mtgs had demos of tools, learning how they worked, decide which was best #lrnchat
09:13:32 pm eLearninCyclops: RT @lrnchat: Q3) How do you prepare to get the most – and learn more – from a meeting? #lrnchat
09:13:35 pm MichelleLBaker: Q3) Take time prior to the mtg to review the agenda (when there is one!) and see who the other attendees will be. #lrnchat
09:13:59 pm learner4eva: @trchandler Love next steps. Helps me move forward. #Lrnchat
09:14:13 pm MichelleLBaker: Q3) Prepare a list of questions ahead of time – when discussions get off-topic, I can still get the info I need. #lrnchat
