How ECHOs work

Every ECHO network includes a facilitator, participants who share their knowledge and experiences, and panel members who provide support and mentoring.

If you join a network, we ask that you commit to joining sessions regularly. Networks may run weekly, fortnightly or monthly and occur at the same time each day. They usually run for between 60 to 90 minutes.

We also ask that you commit to sharing your experience with the group. This adds to the learning experience and you may have some knowledge that others can apply in their everyday work.

ECHOs work best when participants are visible, present and engaged. Turn your camera on if possible. Sessions also work best when participants are curious, so if you have a question don't be afraid to ask it. You can do this by putting your hand up or using the chat function.
