Attending On the Grounds is not like attending a regular conference. Because of our peer learning orientation and commitment to meeting design that builds from the expertise, experience, passion and questions of people in the room, the benefit you will receive from the On the Ground experience is highly dependent on how you show up (present, curious, and ready to co-create) and what you do (engage, contribute, question).
At the 2013 On the Ground in Milwaukee, we spotted that the Community Connections grant team from Detroit was working with long-time friend and consultant to Community Connections David Scheie to articulate their learning goals for the gathering – and loved that idea! We are sharing a slightly adapted version of the tool that David developed for the Detroit team with encouragement for those coming to Cleveland for the 2014 On the Ground – and especially those coming as part of a team – to work through this tool to jump-start their learning.
