SessionLab, a New Easy Way to SkyRock your Program Design

EEO Ehab Elia - Ouishare Public Seen by 167

TL;dr: / Short summary

  • SessionLab is a great tool to co-create sessions/events/workshop (ex. the fest, the summit, one day Workshop) and plan collaborative facilitation
  • After a free team trial for Munich Summit, we negotiated free access for our community. To get your free account, you have to sign up and contact Sarah or me
  • In exchange, we agreed with Robert (co-founder & CEO) to contribute to their development (further details below) ____________

SessionLab is a useful tool for collaborative facilitation. Its free version already proved its benefits, so we asked for a free team trial for the summit to see if it is useful for us as a community. And to be short: yes it is!

One week after the summit, we met Robert online for a feedback session and discussed a further collaboration because we found great value using this tool. We wanted our community to benefit from using it. Especially to use it on event programs instead of a spreadsheet. Among its features :

  • Work collaboratively,
  • Assign tasks,
  • Timetable keeper,
  • The ability to add a comment, files (from G.drive & Dropbox), etc.
  • Drag and drop program blocks,
  • An open source & collaborative library of facilitation resources,
  • And much more...

Robert welcomed the idea to give full access to our community (YEAH 🚀). Here what we proposed in exchange for this partnership:
Spread the word within our community and beyond, (e.g. in our Masterclasses, mentioning in publications)
Enrich the library of facilitation resources,
Add the tool to our open source site (we will prepare a short paragraph on it)
Organize a bi-annual feedback session. Therefore your feedback in using it is very welcome. You can add feedback here.

What you need to do to get onboard:

  • First of all, you have to create an account here,
  • To facilitates the collaborative work, you should add your picture or sign in with Google,
  • Then you have to ask us (Sarah/Ehab) to add your account to the OuiShare group account → That’s it!

How to go with the Open Source Method Library?

We would like to invite you all to add your facilitation methods (team, energizer, ideation, actions, skills, etc.) to the library as a small price to pay collectively to spread the good word and it’s so easy:

  • Connect to your account
  • Go to Library
  • Push the “Add new resources” button
  • Fill the different fields
  • Done :)

Sarah and I will be happy to help anyone who needs help to use the tool. Just ASK!
