What is the Role of Public Scribe


The role of public scribe is simply the writing, on paper or blackboard, of information for the whole group to see. This person primarily assists the Facilitator by taking a task which might otherwise distract the Facilitator and interfere with the overall flow of the Meeting. This role is particularly useful during brainstorms, report-backs from small groups, or whenever it would help the group for all to see written information.
