The 2020 Gathering took place December 1-4 over Zoom.
Throughout the four days, plenary sessions, learning sessions, and connecting sessions were held. Virtual events did not run concurrently, but sequentially, so that everyone had the opportunity to attend all sessions.
What were the types of sessions being offered?
Plenary: Everyone was encouraged to attend plenaries which opened and closed the event. Participants heard from keynote speakers and were part of beginning and ending the event with ceremony, and more. Keynote speakers were spotlighted for attendees to view.
Panel Discussion/Peer Learning Session: This type of Learning Session featured a panel, shared learning opportunities, group discussion, and more engaging ways to learn about the topic. Panelists were spotlighted for attendees to view but people were encouraged to leave their camera on.
Training Session: This type of Learning Session was led by one or two facilitators or trainers who guided participants through an interactive workshop-style learning experience.
Connecting Session: These sessions were lightly facilitated by the CCEDNet team to allow participants chances to connect over shared interests with other community builders through small breakout room opportunities via Zoom meeting.
