Bria, it will be recorded, however there are extensive breakout session elements so it may lack a little coherence in that sense. The cam for dead community always cleans up their recording artifacts and post them about 1 to 2 weeks after the event. It's one of the benefits of being part of the community!

Passing this along from a sister community! Kate Pugh will be joining me in the mischief. A key idea we are bringing to the table is discerning when we are worshipping at the altar of expertise and the expense of tapping true peer to peer knowledge, and the role of dialogic versus content centric peer assistance process options. I've written a rambly introduction blog post here: (It REALLY needs editing and improvement, but if I don't hit "send" at some point, nothing happens!!)

Dear KM4Dev colleagues

KM4Dev, is holding its 13th monthly knowledge cafe next week. On 18 February at 16.00-17.30 CET, we will be Bringing peer assists online: let’s do it! featuring Nancy White and Katrina Pugh, facilitated by Jorge Chavez-Tafur. Using practices informed by Liberating Structures, we will first examine the benefits and challenges of peer assistance methods using the User experience fishbowl which, unlike more typical fishbowls, includes a breakout process where the members of the “bowl” generate solutions and useful questions for the “fish.” This will provide some exposition on the topic. Then we will switch to Troika consulting where it only takes three people to provide valuable peer assist -- and recognizes that even people without shared context or experience may have useful insights. Finally, we will generate our insights and lessons learned with a chat based What? So what? Now what?

Register for the knowledge cafe here:

For those of you who might have been irregular visitors to the KM4Dev discussion list in the past, I also wanted to inform you that the KM4Dev discussion list migrated in December and can now be found here: You are, of course, welcome to join us there!

Kind regards, on behalf of the KM4Dev core group
