Makerspace Tentative Team Schedule

Tentative Team Schedule

Monday (2-4 pm)  Charrette (Visioning Workshop)

Monday (from 5:30 p.m.) Working dinner for our group, setting the schedule and goals for the workshop, writing preparatory notes for our team project’s presentation and plenary discussion, and fine tuning our work plan for Tuesday through Wednesday. Tasks include reviewing the outcomes of our charrette and reviewing tentative schedule for Tuesday through Thursday.

(Note: All work will be documented and loosely organized on our Publishing Makerspace website.)

Tuesday (9-11a) team time –

9-10 a.m.: tasks include preparing for our team’s plenary session discussion. How do we want to lead the discussion? What do we want to present at the beginning about our project? Which makerspace tools do we want to introduce and help critique?   How do we want to help facilitate a discussion that uses our project as a starting point?

10-11 a.m.: After briefly reviewing the results of our charrette, our team conducts an initial critique of the tools and platforms that would enable collaborative makerspace creation: existing tools and electronic publishing platforms including Scalar, WordPress (including CommentPress and Commons in a Box), DH Press, HfE collaborative Chaco platform, Smashwords, Kindle, Open Journal Systems, BePress, Omeka, MediaWiki and Curatescape; online communities that move beyond the constraints of academia, such as HASTAC.

Tuesday (1:30-3p) a discussion and diagramming session draws from our critique of tools and platforms to the larger goals outlined during the charrette. Ideally our plenary session will take place on Tuesday, 3-4 p.m. or on Wednesday, 10-11 a.m.

Plan A. If our plenary session is on Tuesday afternoon, we will focus mainly on refining our plenary session discussion prompts and continuing our discussion about outcomes of our exploration this morning of tools and platforms.

Plan B.   If our plenary session is Wednesday morning, we will focus mainly on continuing our discussion about outcomes of our exploration this morning of tools and platforms, and devote Wednesday 9-10 a.m. on refining our plenary session discussion prompts

Wednesday (9-10a) team time (see Plan A and Plan B above)

(1:30-2p) Finalize our ‘reporting out’ presentation

(2-3p) Discuss implementation of our future goals. What are our short term goals, and what are our longer term goals? How can we model our Makerspace? Where will we share our ideas?

Thursday (9-11a) reporting out, including 20 minute team report to SCI colleagues
