I'm New to the World Cafe
If you are new to the World Cafe, would you please share how you heard about this community?
Through a discussion on organizational development.
What field is the primary focus of your World Café work (ONLY CHECK AREAS WHERE YOU ARE ALREADY ACTIVELY USING WORLD CAFE PLEASE)?
Education, Community
What knowledge, skills or resources would you like to contribute to the World Café community to help it grow and flourish?
I teach internationally as a previously state certified US teacher. My conversations with students (mostly adults) around the world are meaningful one on one, but I'd like to use this kind of system to build conversations into the expat and local communities - especially when those come together!!! - to see what can be harvested from the people who come to Medellin from all over the world get a chance to talk to people from Medellin who were largely isolated during the drug cartels wars and guerrillas war.
What would you most like to receive from this community?
I would like guidance on good questions. As a teacher who works diligently to find good questions for students to converse and to be assessed, I know the power of an excellent question.
What haven't we asked that you'd like to share?
nothing more at this time, maybe later though!

Como está todo contigo, recogí interés en ti después de revisar tu perfil breve y consideré necesario escribirte de inmediato. Tengo algo muy importante que decirte, ¿podrías volver a hablar conmigo? ( ) para obtener todos los detalles. Que tengas un buen día. Gracias Barron Moon.

Welcome, Lisa!

It's sounds like you are doing some wonderful work in Medelin - I'd love to hear more about it. As for your wish for guidance on good questions, I have two thoughts right away, One is to point you to the Art of Powerful Questions, which is an e-book we offer through the World Cafe store. The other is to tell you about the World Cafe Hosting Fundamentals course we offer online in partnership with Fielding Graduate Institute. The Art of Powerful Questions is one of the textbooks we use for it, and we spend two of the eight weeks on the topic.

You might also like to join us for the free monthly Community Cafes we host online. You would be most welcome  - see the Calendar for more details if you are interested.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have other questions, or need help finding anything here.
