Some possible ways you can provide quick closure with your groups is by using the following:
Emoticons – Get people to select and share in chat the emoticon which represents their feeling as they leave the program. This can also be a great mid-point check in to get a sense of where the group is at.
Biggest Learning – What has been everyone’s biggest learning through the process. Give each person 30 seconds to articulate their biggest learning, or in larger groups, have people write in the chat wht their biggest learning has been.
Takeaways – What is it that people are taking away from the program? New ideas? Reinforcements? Other? Have people share this verbally or in the chat.
Next Step – Ask people to consider what their next steps are Get them to be specific in their action items.
Creating a structure – It can be very powerful for people to create a reminder or structure of what they have learned or are going to do next. Given that it is likely that people will be in their nature al environment, give people a few minutes to take note of what they wan tor ember from the work you have done. A structure could include a note on a post it. Scheduling something in your calendar, pulling together a new file folder for the task, or jotting a note down on your phone.
