For anyone who works in an organization with more than 3 people, meetings are likely obligatory. They are definitely important learning environments within any organizations. And, in the time-honored tradition, whenever these meetings are more formal or more fomally organized, they are inevitably accompanied by an agenda.
If you’ve managed many meetings, particularly the kind that have a large number of participants or invlove teams from multiple divisions or companies, you know that agendas can be useful organizational frameworks. They are particularly helpful for keeping things on schedule and providing a nice outline for collectine and publishing notes. What I find most interesting is that, for the most part, we have continued using the same agenda “form” that has been around seemingly forever, a form that is very much about face-to-face meetings in common locations.
With that in mind, today’s learning environment design question is, “What does your ideal meeting agenda look like?”
This goal for this learning environment model (LEM) challenge is to design a LEM for your ideal meeting agenda.
Some questions you might want to think about include:
- What is your desired experience for the activity?
- What is the core purpose of your meeting agenda?
- How might your agenda design be affected by the physical distribution of attendees?
- Is the size of your meeting an important variable?
- What are some possible constraints for this design?
