Here is the recording of the meeting we had this week in which we discussed last minute details about the mini conference: click here for recording. Several issues cropped up that I would ask you to consider if you are organising an event for the mini conference.
Use your blog for getting organised - not just for letting us know what's happening, but also to work through any issues. Use us...your blogging network...to help you sort out problems and clarify details. Have a look at this post by Lynn in which she shares some ideas and uses her readers to frame up her event.
Information for participants
Make sure you have very clear details about your event on the wiki. Remember that complete strangers will be looking at this page and may be joining your event. So it is imperative that you make every step very clear.
- Make sure you have linked to information about how to use the technology eg Elluminate
- Make it very clear how to get to your event eg if you are using the Elluminate room, please put the link to the room.
- Put details about your back-up plan. What will you do if your primary technology fails? For example, if you plan to use Skype as back-up, how will you organise this?
Please make sure you inform everyone about your event in plenty of time. At the very least, put the details of your event on:
All the best to everyone, both facilitators and attendees. Have fun :) :) Sarah
