Developed by Keith McCandless and Henri Lipmanowicz, Liberating Structures are 33 easy-to-learn microstructures that enhance relational coordination and trust. They foster lively participation in groups of any size, making it possible to truly include and unleash everyone. Built around the principles of inquiry, Liberating Structures promote deep thinking, authentic engagement, and creative collaboration.

Kimberly will guide participants in several of the microstructures; discussing what kinds of skills are “liberated” in each. Together, we will also discuss how and when to implement these structures into our own practice, whether in teaching or leading, or both.

Learning Objectives:

  • Experience and debrief the following microstructures: Heard, Seen, Respected (HSR), TRIZ, 15% Solutions, Trioka Consulting, and 25:10 Crowdsourcing
  • Develop a plan for implementing these structures
