Over het evenement
On Friday, April 22nd from 16pm-17:15pm EDT (-4 UTC), we invite you to reconnect with the global u-lab community by joining us for a Live Session.
When u-lab finished in 2015, many of you suggested we continue to host Live Sessions throughout the coming year. We thought that was a great idea – and this is the first step in that direction.
Speaking of first steps: For a long time, we’ve dreamt of making Live Sessions as dynamic and interactive as in-person gatherings. That would mean switching back and forth between large group presentations and short, small group breakout sessions where you join a dialogue group with 4 or 5 other participants.
The only thing holding us back has been technology. That is, until now. We’ve partnered with a team at the MIT Media Lab who have developed the technology to make this vision a reality. We’re going to try it out on April 22nd. If it’s successful, it has the potential to reshape large virtual gatherings in u.lab and beyond. In preparation, we want to get a sense of how many people might join the Live Session.
If you plan to attend, please take 30 seconds and add your name to the form below. Sign up here. We’ll be in touch in early April with the link to watch the session, and with more information. For now, mark your calendars, and post any questions to our Facebook group.
Warm regards, Adam, Julie, and Otto
