The Un-Panel is designed to bring more audience interaction into the mix, be more engaging, and meaningful. It flips the panel around, where each panelist asks the audience a key question, and the audience has a chance to develop their own perspective before hearing from the panelist. Here’s how it works:
Our Un-Panelists prepare one burning question they have about the topic
Each panellist gives an introduction to their theme and presents a question to the audience
After all panelists have asked their questions, the audience breaks into groups of 3 and chooses a question they want to either answer, critique or question (we have developed a way to do this over Zoom for large groups)
The audience will be led to our companion application (meet.ps), where they will post their questions. Based on the numbers of votes the questions receive, your UnModerator will select questions for
There is a conversation between groups and panelists until time runs out.
Deep Dives are essentially break-out sessions, and are a chance for participants to engage more directly and intimately with speakers. The first 20 minutes is dedicated to a lightning round where Deep Dive leaders have one minute to present their topic. Once you get a feel for the topics, you then get to choose which speaker you’d like to sit in with, you will select your breakout through the Schedule tab on meet.ps.
Deep dives are an open conversation with speakers. The speaker will open with their own perspective for the first 10 minutes, and then the floor will open for a broader, interactive conversation.
