Please feel free to use the chat too to get your reflections out!

I have a couple of tech questions: Can the host have visibility into what is happening in the breakout groups?
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
45:30
Hannah: yes, the host and co-hosts can move between breakout sessions to see what’s going on!
Hannah Bowles
45:34
Follow-up to Rahel’s question: Did you craft the “3-min” message? Can we repeat the discussion question in that message?
Suzanne Cooper
45:39
I think the host can drop into any breakout group...Sarah will know for sure.
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
46:22
Yes, I just broadcast the time that’s left to keep groups on time, you could certainly broadcast the discussion question, but as you saw, it’s a temporary flash on the screen
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
46:35
Usually students will have copies of the slides and the questions would be on there!
Ashraf Hegazy
46:36
The host can move between breakout rooms but, as far as I know, can't just "observe" without the participants knowing. Important for trust within the room.
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
47:23
Spot on, Ashraf. They’ll see that you’re there
Hannah Bowles
48:59
Can we get these slides?
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
49:17
Yes! We will send both the slides and the recording of the session.
Hannah Bowles
49:40
Thank you!!
Douglas Johnson
54:46
Can you send out the article you reference? Carol?
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
55:00
We can attach the article as well in the follow-up email

Carol Dweck, Chapter 1 - The Mindsets
Hannah Bowles

Technical question: Have you had problems projecting videos? I was in a training recently that discouraged use of videos, but seems to be working here very well.
Quinton Mayne
01:14:14
So, the section meetings happen outside of class time?
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
01:15:54
Hannah: we use videos in almost every session we do. One really important trick is that when you press screen share, there are two buttons you can check at the bottom of the screen to optimize audio and optimize video. It’s vital to click both of those, otherwise the video can be grainy and/or hard to hear
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
01:16:11
Quinton: yes, sections meet on Thursdays for 90 minutes while lectures happen on Tuesdays for 90 minutes
Quinton Mayne
01:16:21
Thanks.
Aditi Parekh
01:16:26
Also better to play videos from a video player rather than from your presentation
Allison Pingree
01:18:00
Do the breakout groups also get recorded and transcribed?
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
01:18:33
Allison: no, only the breakout group that’s in the main room would get transcribed and recorded!
Allison Pingree
01:18:48
Ok, thanks!
Rahel Dette
01:21:49
In MLD-203, we introduce a “open for all” discussion in three rounds:
Rahel Dette
01:22:28
1) Prof. Leary called on people, 2) she invited students to call on each other, and 3) eventually we opened the floor to everyone — it worked! (n=1, i.e. we only did this once; can keep you posted)
Allison Pingree
01:28:56
Are private chats also recorded?
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
01:29:12
No, thank goodness!
Allison Pingree
01:29:28
:-)
Suzanne Cooper
01:29:47
the meeting organizer can also turn off the ability to have private chats...
Ronnie Heifetz
01:30:28
Very interesting about group discussion in MLD-203. thanks.
Becca Miller
01:35:40
Signing off, thank you all so much!
Sarah ElRaheb-Dagher
01:35:49
Thank you!
Allison Pingree
01:38:13
Signing off now - wonderful to be with you all, and THANK you to Marshall, Sarah and Aditi!
Kessely Hong
01:38:17
Huge thanks Marshall, Sarah and Aditi for giving us all hope in building a real sense of community online!

Thank you Marshall, Sarah and Aditi! This has been so great!
Hannah Bowles
01:38:45
Thank you, Marshall, Sarah, and Aditi!!!
Hannah Bowles
01:38:50
Thank you, Kessely!
Josh Bookin
01:38:57
Excellent session — thanks to the facilitators, and to all at HKS who made it possible.
Edward Cunningham
01:39:48
Thanks to you all - the video was excellent and very helpful….
Hannah Bowles
01:39:52
Some of my notes below, plus I took a lot of screen shots. • Start session with music• Encourage participants to show gallery of participants• Hold down space bar to unmute (work consistently?)• Warm and engaging facilitator with face close to camera. Critical role! Separate entirely from the speaker/lead presenter. Watching expressions, chat room—“engaging emotional intelligence.”• “You have to be more engaged in engaging people.”• Some confusion about what was the discussion question once we broke into small groups. You can project the question along with timing messages, but they only flash briefly on the screen.• Keep breakouts very short (e.g., 3 mins)• Give people roles• Build group ID in chat rooms (e.g., names, song, etc.)• Incomplete chats can be brought to a discussion board• Marshall: “You can do online whatever you can do in a room as long as you establish the relationships.”  Makes me wonder if we could do an online cocktail hour with shifting breakout rooms.
Kessely Hong
01:39:52
I learned you can build trust and encourage a willingness to be vulnerable online!
Lee Warren
01:39:56
Helpful: it does seem to be possible, and for ordinary mortals. thanks so much!!!

One of your last points, Marshall, that anything you can do in a classroom, you can do online, was a big take away for me.
Josh Bookin
01:40:01
My take-away: “We’re all learning. Lets’s be partners in this work."
Quinton Mayne
01:40:12
Take-away: promise and potential of sections alongside plenary class.
Randolph Wentworth
01:40:18
Marshall:You were so relaxed online, it made me feel more relaxed trying this next week.
Natasha Jones
01:40:23
Thank you for sharing your collective experience and reflections! One take away is the possibility of “open office hours.” Can you say more about how you set this up on zoom?
Monica Giannone
01:40:24
Takeaways: can really create a community online; how to use the raise hand and/or chat feature to organize the group discussion. Thank you thank you!
Ashraf Hegazy
01:40:26
That the chat doesn't have to be a distraction, especially if used purposefully.
Shana Yansen
01:40:28
Thank you all this was incredible-- takeaway is anything is possible with Zoom and online learning...lets see where we can take it!
Rahel Dette
01:40:29
This was really terrific!! Beautiful modeling & brilliant ideas. Super insightful — and we will definitely introduce these ideas in our on-going authority class. MANY great points. But I REALLY love this one especially: getting a quick read on what everyone is taking away / where everyone is at is clever! And, indeed, something that may not be possible in an in-person-in-classroom class.
Fern Fisher

Takeaways for Force Multiplier House Parties:
Stephen Krupin
01:40:44
Takeaway: Thank you for allowing us to try the breakout rooms and showing your screensharing of videos. One major takeaway is Marshall's advice: "You have to be more engaged in engaging people."
Erin Shackelford
01:41:01
It was very helpful to see the videos of Marshall interaction with a gallery view of students to get a sense of how it looks and feels - and how community could be built. Thank you for sharing Marshall, Sarah, and Aditi! You are remarkable.
Ralph Ranalli
01:41:02
My takeaway: Never assume a necessary workaround way of doing things is going to be lesser than the traditional way. Keep an open mind to the possibilities.
Douglas Johnson
01:41:04
Concern is with chaos and fighting it with over control. You show the importance of organizing smaller groups to build intimacy and make the large group feel boned enough that it can tolerate your controls.
Isha Nirola
01:41:08
One learning for me was leveraging capacity and diversity on the teaching team. And thinking of small ways to help students feel connected to one another using zoom (like the applause at the end) :)
Dan Levy
01:41:13
We are all learning is key message. Importance of creating community. And being deliberate about what you are trying to do. Thank you Marshall and Sarah! This was very helpful!
Carol Axelrod
01:41:22
Such a rich resource! Who knew that using virtual platforms could have so many advantages. A “bronze lining” of the virus… Thank you so much. Force Multiplier will be exploring lots of the functions we’ve learned about today.
Joan Moon
01:42:01
Thank you for sharing! I’m looking forward to re-watching the recording since I had to join late. My takeaway: it’s possible to make distance learning feel less distant. Takeaway #2: As a former student, I think students would be so encouraged to see the dedication of the faculty and teaching teams on this call. On their behalf, I want to say thank you to everyone here. Stay safe and healthy!
Debra Smith
01:43:45
It was reassuring to hear that the sense of connection and trust that we can build in the classroom will not be lost in this new learning environment; in fact, it may even be enhanced. Heartfelt thanks to Marshall, Sarah, and all for an inspiring and reassuring experience. Be well.
Fern Fisher
01:43:54
important role of facilitator and other roles in addition to Ambassador/speaker . potential of breakout groups to amplify personal connection/interaction. Explicitness of norms and positive messaging a bout benefits of online platform. Value of variety of formats during event - i.e. not just talking heads. Think through how to use chat box with explicit asks.
Tom Hallock
01:43:58
Key learnings for me were in creating community experience online by gallery view, unmuting for applause, break out rooms. Also very helpful to get language for orienting people to norms of new tech environment. Big shout to Sarah from whom I learned much!
Fern Fisher
01:44:39
Questions: My screen only has 4 x 4 grid, but the video showed 5 x 5. Is that a function of my computer, or is that a setting somewhere?
Fern Fisher
01:45:16
Is the transcription option a function of the level of zoom account?
Fern Fisher
01:45:22
Thank you!
