Break-out room set-ups

Hi,

I am a facilitator and would like to have more options to set up break-out rooms to enable more innovative facilitation approaches to be set up easily, e.g.

World Cafe set up: Set up groups of 5 and in the next round have one person in each break-out room stay and the others to be distributed to as many different ones as possible.

Pro-action cafe: Round 1 Set up group of 5 - Round 2 1 person stays, others go elsewhere Round 3 - everybody comes back to their original group

Open Space: Participants propose topics, participants can then sign up to different topics (see MIT unhangout)

Liberating structures: (there is a whole host of them http://www.liberatingstructures.com/ls/ ) e.g 1, 2, 4 , All - setup would have to be that after you may have random 2s, when they go into 4s - two pairs are automatically joined

Fishbowl discussion: Give participants the option to be in or out of the fishbowl;

These are just some of the examples. Would be happy to chat. https://toasty.ai is starting to look at this but are not very far. The platform generally is not as good though. Would prefer to see those facilitator features in Zoom.

Thank you.
