I loved the Sinatra queue to move. Conversation was great. Maybe one less table?

It was great fun to trade tables/folks.

Great group, great facilitation by Lauren

Great group of folks, intelligent conversations, many take- aways!

Well structured! Great discussion at the table I was in

Good discussion and great facilitation. Collaboration is not easy and can be slow, but it is an important process.

Good opportunity for conversation about critical topics.

I appreciate the experiences and willingness to share of my group mates.

Thanks for providing the opportunity for us to discuss these important topics.

I was thinking about what tech can be used as collaborating tools

It’s amazing how some people can refuse to stay on task or answer the question at hand. Without a leader of the table, it makes it difficult to keep everyone engaged. I’d recommend assigning a leader to each table as well as other tasks to the other people at the table.

Challenging issue to wrestle with did not provide a solution (there isn’t one) but did let us know that our issues are not unique.

It was nice to have discussion in small groups and then transition into sharing within the larger group. It’s provided a more comfortable discussion time coupled with the sharing from the other tables.

Thanks for getting a group of people together to bounce ideas off of one another. Seeing the common issues and success between different colleges was great.

engaged group. good discussion. mix of skills so great mentoring and sharing.

I had great folks in our group, but I just wasn’t as engaged with the topic.

Enjoyed the discussion and feedback from our table and the large group.

This session matched my expectations and more. I’m not surprised that we share many of the same trials and tribulations, despite traditional versus experimental institutions. I particularly appreciated commiserating with fellow support staff along with learning what strategies, etc., have been successful at different campuses.

It almost turned into a management conversations instead of collaborations, but there was still some excellent conversions and ideas.

Yes = 6 No = 0

Excellent conversation around LMS and migration.

Great conversation!

Good general discussion. I did not have specific questions to address, but it was interesting seeing what other schools are working on and wrestling with

Interesting seeing the contrast between marketing an LMS as an all-in-one solution and limiting features within the LMS because better (or less IT-intensive) tools exist elsewhere.

Nice to get a recap of where folks are and where they’re going.

Group conversation was really helpful and informative

Super useful and interesting

Great presentation … I could have spent an entire day in there. Lots of good information being shared. Thanks to everyone who participated.

Nice information and well presented. The University of Oregon has a new library with some interesting spaces, if you want to do something like this again next time.

Yes = 8 No = 0

Very productive conversations, generalized questions that sparked great conversation

Great discussion and perspective from the groups

Not many solutions or actionable items- but that’s not a complaint- the discussion was rigorous and illuminating.

Perhaps a different format would have worked well in this session. A jigsaw, with folks moving for each question might have worked well. Like the speed networking.
