Advanced Strategy Lab conference style is a unique implementation of ASL that allows us to increase the number of participants in a session. Instead of one participant per laptop, ASL conference style uses one laptop per multiple participants.
A typical configuration could be one laptop per two participants that enables the pair to collaborate on key topics. Another configuration would be one laptop per three participants to create "triads". In this case, we could have 25 laptops supporting 75 participants.
Finally, in larger conference settings, we can place a laptop per table and assign a "table advocate" to be at the laptop representing the views of the table. A table could have five to ten participants. In this case, we can support large settings of 250 to 500 participants.
The powerful concept in an ASL conference style session is that we are creating dual collaboration. The first level of collaboration is at the table where the group is discussing key themes. The second level is among the tables where all tables are connected and are sharing responses.
