Breakout Rooms FAQs
Have you been enjoying the ESACH Talks? Looking for a way to further the discussion, share your own ideas, and network with other participants?
We are excited to announce that ESACH Talks! will now be followed with breakout room discussions!
How do I participate?
It is easy, just stay on the Zoom event at the conclusion of the Talks and you will automatically be assigned to a breakout room of 6-10 participants. Each group will have an ESACH discussion facilitator.
What can I expect from the discussion?
Each group will be unique! However, we will all start with introductions that will serve as a networking opportunity for our community. We want to hear the voices of all participants and will invite you to share experiences related to the presentations and topic of the month. Our facilitators will have guided discussion questions, but we will let the conversation flow with the interest of each group.
What if I don’t have much experience with this month’s topic, can I still join?
Absolutely! These discussions are a great place to raise questions and challenges. We don’t have to have the answers – this is a space to learn and exchange ideas.
What is the format?
Each session will last for a maximum of 30 minutes; you are welcome to stay for the entire time or as long as you are able. There will be introductions, an open floor for sharing ideas, and guided discussion questions. The atmosphere will be informal in contrast to the structured ESACH Talks.
Why should I join?
We want to hear from you! The discussions will provide a platform for the exchange of ideas across cultures and heritage specialties. They will give you an opportunity to share your experiences and learn from others. They will be a great way to meet and build connections with other young people in the cultural heritage field.
