Whip-Around activity to start each roundtable:

  1. When it is your turn to speak, you will have 30 seconds to share an idea in response to the prompts. 
  2. When it is not your turn to speak, do not ask questions, interrupt, add, comment, etc. Practice active listening.  
  3. Once everyone has had their 30 seconds, open the floor for discussion. At this point, there will be a lot to dig into.

Assign a timekeeper to gently remind members of the 30-second limit and the active listening agreement, and once all have shared, move into the open discussion.

For the open discussion, please assign a notetaker to write down as many ideas as possible as you continue brainstorming on the questions.
