1. Bâton de parole; take turns speaking, trying not to interrupt others.
  2. Address texts and arguments NOT the people making them (No ad hominem attacks!)
  3. Be aware of yourself in relation to others (Am I taking too much space and preventing others from participating? What responsibility do I have to contribute, in this case?).
  4. ZOOM: use icons: hands for turn taking; turtle and rabbit for slow down and speed up; clap hands for approval (try not to forget to take your hand down).
  5. Keep an open mind to what others bring; don’t approach in an adversarial mode (Engage in constructive and generous ways; see Joe Dumit’s How I Read).
  6. Be attentive to potentially sensitive, triggering topics, events or ways of speaking: “read the room” and think about who the others are in our conversations. Try not to speak too far beyond your own experience.
  7. Be prepared to be called out or called in (However, remember #5 above).
  8. Emotions are a welcome part of the lab: We will make space for feelings all along and start each meeting with an emotional check-in/tour de table (see Michael Khan’s The Seminar).
  9. This is a confidential space.
