      With so many digital tools available to suit different needs, here's an exciting opportunity to find out what tools work and how they can work for you. This month, civic engagement specialist Susanna Haas Lyons and her guests look at Digital Whiteboards -- digital version of flipcharts. These collaborative whiteboards, like Stormboard, Jamboard and Miro, allow groups to work together remotely, adding ideas at the same time, or at their own pace. 

      Martin Carcasson from Colorado State University will share his experiences using GroupMap. 

      He'll be joined by Mallory Baker, Community Engagement lead at Walker Consultants. She'll discuss how she's used MURAL for public engagement collaboration.


      In this series of 90-minute workshops, you'll hear from practitioners who have already used a particular tool, find out why they chose it, how well it met their needs, what staff capacity they needed; AND, you'll get to try the tool out for yourself.


      YOUR FACILITATOR: Susanna Haas Lyons is a civic engagement specialist. designing participation strategies, facilitating complex meetings, and providing training for better conversations between the public and decision-makers. Read more about Susanna here.

Voici une excellente occasion de découvrir ceux qui fonctionnent et ce qu’ils peuvent vous aider à accomplir. Les séances auront lieu en anglais. Vous pouvez poser vos questions en français, et vous aurez l'option de travailler en petits groupes en français. Nous envisageons d'organiser une séance (atelier de découverte numérique) en français en 2022.

      Joignez-vous à Susanna Haas Lyons, spécialiste de l’engagement civique, pour cette série d’ateliers de 90 minutes. Vous découvrirez un outil de P2 numérique en particulier (un outil différent sera abordé lors de chaque atelier) et bénéficierez de l’expérience de praticiens qui l’ont déjà utilisé. Vous aurez l’occasion de leur demander pourquoi ils l’ont choisi, comment il répond à leurs besoins, quelles capacités sont requises de la part du personnel, ET vous aurez la possibilité d’essayer vous-même l’outil.

      Atelier de découverte numérique no 4: Tableaux blancs collaboratifs en mode virtuel. Version numérique des tableaux de conférence, les tableaux blancs collaboratifs permettent à différents groupes de collaborer à distance. Les participants peuvent ajouter des idées simultanément ou à leur propre rythme. Apprenez comment utiliser les tableaux blancs collaboratifs pour présenter des projets de P2, ou pour mener des activités de mobilisation et de collaboration dans le cadre de projets de P2.

      Political division in America has not been this deep since the Reformation following the Civil War, and there is a cautionary tale for Canada, as well. From race to issues surrounding the pandemic, there is no shortage of divisive and intractable issues facing society, and rather than have open and frank conversations, we just head to our respective corners. What can we do as neutral facilitators to effectively move people toward healing?

      In this reprise of her popular presentation at the 2021 IAP2 North American Virtual Conference, Sheila Shockey of Shockey Consulting will help understand why this divide is deepening, and you'll get a chance to learn about best practices. 

      Sheila Shockey has provided community engagement, planning, and management consulting services to local governments since 1989. Sheila uses data-rich tools to show interconnection between technologies, society, economics, and government so stakeholders can comprehend big, complex transformations and make better decisions for a more resilient world. She is a member of IAP2 USA and has a background in city management, planning, and economics. She has lived and worked in rural, suburban, and urban America. She brings together these three perspectives to compare, contrast, and talk about the path forward for all three.

      It’s been said a hundred times before, the pandemic has wildly changed the landscape of public engagement, and it’s essential to accept that it will never go back to the way it was. Over the course of this pandemic, we’ve changed how we do things with new expectations for how and when people engage and what’s available to them when they do.

      Pre-pandemic, everyone expected the one-evening event and maybe the one-weekend event. But now we’re in a space where the time of day, time zone and date for events almost don’t matter because online events have increased the ability to participate.

      But people ARE going to want to participate in-person AND they are going to want to participate online. It’s time to get AGILE and create hybrid engagement opportunities!

      Design for Hybrid Public Engagement Events is similar to stand alone in-person or online, however a number of key considerations and accommodations are needed for meaningful events that deliver results and create connection between participants.

      Résumé du cours

      La participation publique et citoyenne nous réserve parfois des surprises de taille! En effet, les personnes qui animent et participent à des consultations publiques sont parfois confrontées à différentes émotions (colère, tristesse, désaroi), de l’indignation, des personnes difficiles, des contextes et des projets sensibles, des personnes et organisations en désaccord, une forte mobilisation citoyenne, etc.

      Dans ce contexte, la personne qui anime et/ou facilite le processus de participation publique et toutes les autres personnes qui l’accompagnent se doivent d’être prêts à faire face à ces situations tout en restant humain et en démontrant beaucoup d’empathie. Mais ils se doivent aussi d’agir avec confiance en acceptant la situation, en accueillant l’émotion et éventuellement en mettant en place des conditions de succès pour assurer des échanges constructifs.

      Ce cours-atelier pratique mettra les participant-e-s face à différentes situations et permettra d’identifier des pistes de solutions et les comportements appropriés.

      Does this sound familiar?

      • Are your conversations fraught with discomfort, tension and concern?

      • Are you unsure what to say or intimidated in difficult conversations?

      • Are fear, hesitancy and worry about getting it right constant companions in your work?

      • Are the practices that have served you in the past not working?

      • Are you worried about having really tough conversations with your team, community or group?

      • Are you constantly running into conflict, opposition or uncomfortable situations?

      • Are you not getting the results or progress you hope for?

      • Do you wish there was a way to move from stuck to possible when talking about the things people care most about?


      There is a different way.

      Brave, Honest Conversations™ are a way of talking together, working together and living. When we show up with courage, compassion and integrity the possibilities are endless. The world needs more leaders who dare to make a lasting difference.

      It is time to build your leadership skills – to practice courage, compassion and responsibility for impact. When you build your capacity to lead others, groups and the world around you, you create the momentum for positive change and the opportunity to move from stuck to possible. Foundational to leading others is the ability to lead your-self, to practice courage, compassion and kindness for yourself, and to make choices that allow you to bring your best self to the world.

      Learn new ways of being and showing up in tough conversations, and also find some new tangible, practical tools to improve your work in the world.

        Facilitation skills are essential for public engagement professionals. Masterful facilitation involves more than group process techniques and strong meeting design – it also requires anticipation skills and adaptability. This highly interactive, fun-filled session strengthens participants' ability to trust their intuition, think on their feet and deal with unpredictable situations. When a facilitated session goes off the rails (and it will), you need to tap into a different skillset to bring things back on track quickly.
