Open Spaces Learning
Lessons (2011 . 2012 . 2013)
Reflecting Forward

Start with last year's learning and last year's Reflecting Forward (then, of course, there is this year's :-).

  • Space-time Matrix
    • Draw lines across the space-time matrix for each row (and block out areas not for sessions) - Kim Tucker
      • to make session times completely clear (see photo)
        • we had post-its going up (incorrectly) next to Day headings (Day 1, Day 2, ...) instead of time slots.
  • Managing WikiEducator pages - copy-modify pages from the previous year
    1. Start with the navigation template (copy and modify the previous year's)
    2. and then systematically populate the linked pages based on their 2012 equivalents.
    3. Watch every page and be notified of changes - see the WikiEducator Useful Features tutorial.
    • Some principles:
      1. WikiEducator is for outputs: session outputs, learning resources related to Java and convening open spaces events (two case studies so far :-).
        • best not to use it for specifics such as travel arrangements, logistics, meals and excursions (imo) - use (or the Java Specialists Wiki).
      2. Prefix each page with (e.g.) 'itic2013:' to avoid name clashes with others wanting to develop generic resources on a topic we happen to have covered in a symposium.
      3. Think carefully before editing pages (especially templates) created for 2012 with a view to using them for 2013 (you can break continuity) - rather create a new template and edit it to work for 2013.
      4. Please add ...
  • Outputs
    • The quantity and quality of outputs is up to the participants and thus highly variable - losing many great insights.
      • For more complete outputs with less effort, in 2013 the aim is to video record all the sessions.
