DIITA Australia is an Open Space Workshop that utilizes an “attendee-based participatory experience” to work on solutions needed in the field of technology inclusion today. Rather than having a pre-set agenda and canned presentations, Instead, attendees may nominate topics of interest for the agenda, which will then form a multi-track agenda. Other attendees can participate in the topic discussions in real time and face-to-face within the small focus sessions.. This makes the day very interactive, creative and highly immersive for all involved.
At an Open Space workshop, you’re invited to speak and share, raise questions, or ask for input. Whether you have an idea for a session right away or think of one in the middle of the workshop, you are welcome to propose it and run a session. We will set the agenda at the beginning of the day.
