How to Run a Breakout Room Session

Clearly explain that two people need to volunteer to facilitate and take notes on the Harvest doc.


  • Preferably - needs to have some experience in facilitation
  • How to monitor the room for hand signals, and the chat for Stacks
  • Understand the difference between hand signals:


  • Know the round off hand sign and not be afraid to use it
  • To actively encourage under-contributors to contribute
  • To have a timer ready and set to manage each contribution


  • Be on a device where they can access the Harvest doc and type on to it and add all contributions
  • Be able to type at a certain speed and be confident to ask contributors to slow down if needed
  • Be able to either succinctly feedback the key points verbally or to add these to the chat
