SPECIAL WEBINAR: Adaptive Technologies and P2 (Session 1)

  • 24 Mar 2020

  • Online
  • 20


Registration is closed

The COVID-19 outbreak has created a "new reality" in many sectors, including Public Participation. Practitioners, trainers and others are wondering how to handle the situation.

In the next few weeks, IAP2 Canada and IAP2 USA will be presenting a webinar series on the impacts of COVID-19 and our P2 practice, to address the questions we have received over the past week or so.

In the first session, Kim Hyshka of Dialogue Partners and Chrystiane Mallaley and Michael Sauvé of Hill+Knowlton Strategies will respond to some of these questions, including:

  • What are some ideas or creative methods for continuing engagement without meeting face-to-face? 
  • What's "out there," in terms of social media, teleconferencing platforms, digital tools in general? When and how should we use them? 
  • What are some good experiences and what should we be careful about?
  • How do we address inclusion and low barrier access for those with limited tech skills: what technologies require easy installation or none at all, while supporting a variety of participation methods
  • Platforms and tools that support effective small group conversations and “break out” rooms, or that can support moving from plenaries to group work 
  • Platforms that can include visual note-taking or collaboration (in ways that can be recorded for data collection) 
  • Facilitation tips and tools for effective online conversations
  • And more ...
The other sessions in the series include:
  • Tuesday, March 24 at 11:30am Pacific (2:30pm Eastern), Susanna Haas Lyons and Elizabeth Buehler, Civic Engagement Manager with the Salt Lake City Corporation, will also address these and other topics. You are welcome to register for that session, as well.
  • FRENCH - Wednesday, March 25 at 11 am, Pacific time (2pm Eastern): Cédric Bourgeois (Transfert Environnement) and Jacques Bénard (Hill+Knowlton Strategies) will look at adaptive technologies in the French context. Register for that session.
  • On Tuesday, March 31, 11am Pacific (2pm Eastern), we'll focus on you in "COVID-19, P2 and Managing With The 'New Reality'". How are you adapting to the sudden changes and what others are doing. We'll consider such questions as:
    • How are people responding to this?
    • What do we do with our projects?
    • How do we cope?
    • How do we plan in areas lilke accessibility and inclusion?
    • Is any engagement that we are doing now valid?
    • What is the problem that we are trying to solve?
    • How do we reach the "seldom heard" and individuals with accessibility challenges?
    • How can we continue to motivate people to participate in the current context and until what point in the process?
You are not alone, so join us for this special session. Speakers are still to be confirmed.
