What is a World Cafe?

I was introduced to this concept at the phenominal 'Emerging Leaders Summit' run by Core Ed earlier this year. I tried it our when facilitating e learn pedagogy for 50 teachers from all levels of education and it was heaps of fun. It gets people talking openly and honestly while organising information. Everyones voice is heard even though there are huge numbers.
Top tips
-set a great relaxed cafe style environment
-be prepared with post its, felts, large paper, lollies etc
-use music as a away to manage the crowds
-be true to the methods described below to get the best results

See for yourself how it works and give it a go. You will be impressed with the ideas that result from it.
