Session Planning

  1. If you have not proposed a session before, you can propose first
  2. Intro to how BarCamp sessions are scheduled
    • Sessions are created by the participants in the room
    • You decide a topic you would like to facilitate
    • You don't need to be an expert, being able to ask good questions is sufficient
    • No slide presentations, no product pitches
    • If there is a session similar to yours, see if it makes sense to combine sessions
  3. write THREE THINGS on a notecard:
    1. session name
    2. your name
    3. session #hashtag - used for archiving the session
  4. Note: Some rooms will be recorded
  5. Session scheduling!
  6. Instructions for session organizers
    • During sessions, appoint at least one person to take notes in etherpad
    • Make sure to wrap up the session five minutes before the next starts to allow a break

Notes for faciliator

  • Let session proposers put the sticky note on the board themselves
  • Encourage new folks to propose first
  • Let people propose their session, then ask how many people are interested, use that to gauge interest to determine room size
