Austin Chapter

Facilitating Asynchronous Learning via AI
The Austin Chapter partnered with in-kind sponsor Howspace, a digital facilitation and artificial intelligence (AI) platform, to support community of practice (CoP) programs and foster engagement both during and after CoP events. The Howspace platform allows the chapter to turn CoP events into interactive sessions, including polls, visualizations, and real-time AI insights based on participant interactions. It also enables the board to upload event recordings so individuals who couldn’t attend the session can still view the recording, submit their answers to included activities, participate in discussion posts, and interact with other chapter members. As a result, the chapter has increased engagement with CoP programs and extended learning opportunities beyond the live sessions. The board has also used the platform to support its strategic planning efforts, the chapter’s annual summit, and more.
