It would have come out very colourful and with the words large.ASSUMPTIONS ASSUMPTIONS ASSUMPTIONS ASSUMPTIONS ASSUMPTIONS ASSUMPTIONSPREJUDGING PREJUDGING PREJUDGING PREJUDGING PREJUDGING PREJUDGING PREJUDGINGSNAP-COMMENTS SNAP-COMMENTS SNAP-COMMENTS SNAP-COMMENTS SNAP-COMMENTSD&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&D D&DNEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACT NEGATIVE-IMPACTDOESOPENSPACETECHNOLOGYFAACILITATETHIS?Highlights from the discussionThe role of the convener and those participating in D&D.Participants just coming to vent and not listen. Taking out their disgruntled thoughts on vulnerable participants. Being a bee and stinging.Suggestions of Models of facilitation to be provided. E.g. passing of stickComparison made to role of the foreperson in jury service to ensure equality of voice of jurors.Suggesting that different people in the discussion hold different responsibilities assigned at the beginning e.g. note taker; someone supporting everyone to have their voice heard if they want it to be; etc.Someone suggested that “there is something positive in the feeling of discomfort.”Suggesting of buddy system – volunteer.Discussion regarding does Open Space Technology and D & D format prevent under-represent groups even turning up?Suggestion pre D & D which is about facilitating group discussions.Accessibility for all was key and amendments to the model should happen in order to facilitate this.
