Results of NCDD’s awesome Codigital experiment
We wanted to share the full results of our 10-day engagement project, where we invited members of the NCDD community to share what they would like to see happen when our field comes together at the 2014 National Conference on Dialogue & Deliberation this fall in the DC area.
The level and quality of participation in this activity were amazing! It was exciting for me, and for the whole planning team for NCDD 2014, to see the great ideas that were shared, and to be able to watch as you honed and prioritized each other’s ideas.
As you can see from the image above, 122 of you participated, 95 ideas were submitted, 174 edits were made, and a whopping 5290 votes (or ratings) were cast.
Props go to James Carr and Codigital for one of the smoothest, most addicting, and most intuitive engagement experiments we’ve conducted for our community. Codigital was kind enough to donate their services to NCDD for this project, and we are so grateful they did.
Check out the full results of the project here. The project report contains all the ideas submitted (in the order the group ranked them) and overall engagement statistics. Planning team member Phil Neisser is working on theming the results, and we are open to others’ interpretations and reactions to the results — and to the process. Please share your thoughts in the comments here.
The results of this project will be extremely useful to the planning team as we move forward in the planning process. Hopefully it is also getting many of you thinking about the most valuable ways YOU can contribute to the conference (our call for workshop proposals will be issued soon).
If you are interested in using Codigital’s co-creation tool, feel free to contact James at firstname.lastname@example.org. He can also be reached by phone at 303-884-1260 (Mountain time; he’s based in Colorado). In addition to online activities like the one we just ran, Codigital’s tool is used by groups before and during conferences to improve engagement through participation in interactive projects that gather ideas and perspectives, and co-create solutions reflecting the collective intelligence of the group. They are happy to partner with facilitators and conference organizers.
