World Debate Forum Online 2015

5,083 views

Published on

We're trying something new.

The World Debate Forum is still working hard to create more conversations around debate, to bring together Educators, Advocates and Competitors. We've run 4 events since 2011 (Gaborone, Manila, Delhi, Berlin), but to really reach everyone, we're going to take online.

So no fees, no costs, and the most flexible schedule ever. Just your ideas.

World Debate Forum Online 2015

  1. 1. WORLD DEBATE FORUM < ONLINE > Established in 2011, the WDF brings together different people (educators, competitors, advocates) united by their passion for and belief in debate, so we can learn from each other and work together. Think TED talks, but for debate, and with discussions. And less flash. The WDF was previously held in Gaborone, Manila, Delhi and Berlin. This year we are going to take it Online. Participation never reached the heights we hoped it would, but it did breed a small hardcore group. It is our hope that an online WDF will encourage more diverse, consistent and natural participation, resulting in more ideas, deeper conversations and stronger networks. We also hope to create a new framework to present, develop and archive ideas. This is an experiment, so suggestions and support are most welcome. Okay, so this is our idea ...
  2. 2. MAKE AND UPLOAD PRESENTATIONS! Presenters make short videos (3 to 15 minutes or so) to share their ideas. The WDF team will collate, edit and publish them. We will publish them on YouTube, and post them on a common platform (a website or blog) so it will live in one place. SHARE submissions due NOV 27! #REFLECTION #TIME Participants, presenters and watch presentations, share them, comment, discuss, think, share them, comment, discuss, think, share them... Discussions can happen everywhere, but we hope a lot of it will happen where the videos are published. Presenters might also have their own feedback tools (an online survey for example). DISCUSS 4 - 11 DEC, a week to discuss LET’S TALK ABOUT IT Using Google Hangout (or some other online conferencing platform) presenters host a short live discussion on their idea. We’ll need to choose a time that works for everyone (which will be impossible to do). The recording of this discussion will also be made available later. HANGOUT 12/13 DEC, around the world REVIEW + CLOSE There are no awards, but everyone has a chance to evaluate what worked and didn’t, suggest improvements, and we will publish them. REVIEW by the end of DEC I WANT TO PRESENT Tells us a little about yourself, and submit a presentation! I WANT TO GIVE FEEDBACK OR If you don’t want to present, sign up to be a participant! Great ideas become better when they receive great feedback. Tell us something about yourself (for the benefit of our presenters) and get ready to absorb, reflect and comment! You must promise to watch and give careful feedback on at least 3 submissions. SIGN UP OCT 17 onwards
  3. 3. SHARE submissions due NOV 27! DISCUSS 4 - 11 DEC, a week to discuss HANGOUT 12/13 DEC, around the world REVIEW by the end of DEC MAKE AND UPLOAD PRESENTATIONS! #REFLECTION #TIME LET’S TALK ABOUT IT REVIEW + CLOSEI WANT TO PRESENT! SIGN UP OCT 17 onwards “ I can share my experience running a workshop! It was in this super cool place and we built some innovative tools! I learned all these new things.... All I need to do now is provide my details, a title for my presentation and a brief description of what I plan to share ” “ I’ll record a narration over powerpoint slides. Or maybe I’ll have a Skype chat with my colleagues and record that video, so it’ll be like a group presentation. Or record myself in a lecture theatre with some props! Or just use my webcam. As long as the lighting is bright and sound is clear, it’ll work! ” “ Here comes the feedback! That’s an interesting suggestion for the next workshop .. Good question, didn’t think of that ... Yes, we tried that and it didn’t work.. I’ll explain .. Troll. Yes! Would love to collaborate!.. Oh nice additional resource!.. No, that’s not what we mean.. Thanks for the support! ” “ Hello everyone and welcome to the hangout. It’s 11am for me but 3am and 8pm for some of you! What’s the weather like in Rio / Seoul / Melbourne / Berlin / Goa? Okay, so let me respond to some questions that came up last week, then I’d love to hear feedback ...” “ I think it would be better if we did it at a different time. Yes I would participate, but I hope we can use a different platform. I love the production on the videos, those improved the watchability without overwhelming it”
  4. 4. SHARE submissions due NOV 27! DISCUSS 4 - 11 DEC, a week to discuss HANGOUT 12/13 DEC, around the world REVIEW by the end of DEC WAIT FOR THOSE PRESENTATIONS! #REFLECTION #TIME LET’S TALK ABOUT IT REVIEW + CLOSE I WANT TO GIVE FEEDBACK! SIGN UP OCT 17 onwards “ I don’t think I’m ready present, but I’d love to watch and contribute! I’ll sign up and provide my details and promise to review at least 3 presentations “ I’m waiting for the presentations.. nothing yet, though some of them are really interesting (based on the titles and descriptions at least). Oh here’s an early submission, I’ll look at this first.. “ “ I’ve watched all the videos - except this one ... I’ll watch that later maybe.. I loved your approach, especially this part. I think if you include this tool, you can increase your impact. Have you tried this? I didn’t understand what you meant by this. How does that work if the students are not full time? I know someone who can help you get students / publicity / funds .. I have additional data that you can use to verify your findings! Try this.. ” “Hi! It’s 1am here but I never sleep anyway. Hah. Great presentation! And interesting idea! Have you thought about doing it this way? Oh you tried that? I see. When I did this, it had completely different results! Right, maybe we can try that instead.. What did it feel like to go there? What were some reactions?” “ I think it would be better if we did it at a different time. Yes I would participate, and maybe next time even present! I love the production on the videos, those improved the watchability without overwhelming it ”
