ACC=-WW(HE) / May 2022
This is the prior ACC-WW Home Edition section. It is being kept here to let people see how we operated the virtual version. We are considering running another later in 2022.
ACC-WW Home Edition’s agenda is shown below. The ACC-WW in-person event will be added within the next couple of weeks. Any times noted below are based on Greenwich Mean Time (aka Universal Time Coordination or Zulu Time). These times may adjust to the facilitators we select and ticket sales. We hope you will join us…
We have made some changes based on retro feedback we received from the event last year. We expect this will make the Camp even better!
VERY IMPORTANT: We want each participant/attendee to have their own personal zoom room (you can sign up for free). We have planned the sessions based on that assumption.
ACC=-WW(HE) Open Space Sessions
Friday, 6 May
GMT 1800 – 2300 Opening Circle, 3 Rounds of Sessions, Closing Circle, and Data Collection for Retro
Saturday, 7 May
GMT 1300 – 1800 Opening Circle, 3 Rounds of Sessions, Closing Circle, and Data Collection for Retro
Sunday, 8 May
GMT 0900 – 1400 Opening Circle, 3 Rounds of Sessions, Closing Circle, and Data Collection for Retro
Reminder: All times are Greenwich Mean Time (aka Universal Time Coordination or Zulu Time).
What will each 5 hour block look like?
We’ll start with a virtual opening circle where the facilitator will explain the principles and laws and how these will work in the online environment. Any other logistics will be explained at this time as well. Then we’ll open up the virtual market place (we are deciding on a software package to use). We’ll create a virtual queue for people to propose one topic at a time. If you want to propose multiple topics, you will need to add your name to the back of the queue. If you have heard a similar topic and want to combine, ask that person if you may combine as you propose. Please be very concise as you propose.
Once the marketplace is populated, we will take a short break for people to go to their sessions. The main room will stay open. We plan to use Zoom. VERY IMPORTANT (repeating): We want each participant/attendee to have their own personal zoom room (you can sign up for free). We have planned the sessions based on that assumption. Sessions will be 40 minutes – the length of the free Zoom account. If people want to keep talking about the topic at hand, when the room closes, just return to the same room.
Each session will have a host facilitator (the proposer), hopefully a recorder (might be preferable to be someone other than the host), and hopefully a means to share what is being recorded. We plan to offer Mural; we will also want this information saved in some manner to become part of the proceedings. We are not thinking of video or audio, but rather the metaphor of virtual flip charts…
There will always be a short break between each 40 minute session to let people come check the virtual marketplace again. After 3-4 rounds of sessions, people will return to the main ‘room’ for the news highlights and virtual closing circle.
Once the circle is closed by the facilitator, we will have a data collection for the organizing team’s retrospective. We want to get your insights on what we want to amplify and what we want reduce or eliminate.
So here ‘s what that looks like in terms of time from any particular session start:
Start Time -> 5 min
5 min -> 10 min
10min -> 25 min
25 min -> 1 hr
1 hr -> 1 hr 10 min
1 hr 10 min -> 1hr 50 min
1 hr 50 min -> 1 hr 55 min
1 hr 55 min -> 2 hr 35 min
2 hr 35 min -> 2hr 40 min
2hr 40 min -> 3hr 30 min
3 hr 30 min -> 3 hr 35 min
3 hr 35 min -> 4 hr 15 min
4 hr 15 min -> 4hr 25 min
4 hr 25 min -> 4 hr 40 min

As we mentioned last year, even when the physical ACC-WW event returns, we could continue this trend of having an online event annually. SO you are seeing 2 events this year! We will post the Agenda for the in-person event below when it is ready.
