One participant is chosen (based on a role, experience, stance, or other trait) to answer questions about a given topic for an allotted amount of time. The rest of the group is charged with asking them questions about the topic, including follow-up questions and clarifying questions in response to their answers. Repeat by swapping out the participant in the hot seat, the given topic, or both.
In our Virtual Facilitation Guide, we have activities that provide you with step-by-step instructions and everything you need to facilitate Hot Seat in a virtual meeting using Zoom or a platform with similar features.
