Help Wanted - Community Sessions


#1

I"m planning Community Sessions for Fall 2014. What topics or types of skillshares would you like to have?

See the programme details - http://wiki.okfn.org/Community_Sessions
See the Community Sessions Schedule - http://wiki.okfn.org/Community_Sessions_Schedule

Thanks!

I’d love to see something about looking at what kind of datasets people most want to get and which have been most challenging.

I also think a “finding and getting data” skillshare could be nice (focused on non-tech side - e.g. using google, using a spreadsheet etc).

I think a skillshare / session re OpenSpending would also be awesome.

HI Rufus, thanks for the input.

For Idea voting and collecting, the team setup a trello board - https://trello.com/b/hDH6zD35/open-knowledge-community-sessions.

Regarding finding and getting data - we do plan to host some in the near future. We hosted an OpenSpending Skillshare in the spring - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_fk1_Ru-9Q

Thanks again,

Heather

Do we have a nice gallery / list of Skillshares to date (with things like the video embedded)? That would be cool!
