Membership encompasses a wide spectrum of involvement at this point. Right now the two “requirements” consist of subscribing to Slack #wg-educator channel updates and the Open edX Forum. See link above for instructions.
Some mechanisms exist as part of this new working group (zoom sessions, Slack channel)
Some ideas for new channels (presentation at next year’s conference, webinars)
Various ideas were presented but the major theme was the immediate desire was for a presentation on the roadmap.
Many other good ideas of things we want and things we can present on are shared in the jamboard.
Values, Principles, Norms
Ideas were collected on the Jamboard and will be collated into our Working Group document.
Two projects (Testing and Documentation) were brought up. There wasn’t time to dive into them but some member expressed interest in learning more about these things. John will share more details to the Slack.
John will work on getting a Product Roadmap presentation for the next session.
@John Swope will start organizing the next session around product roadmap.
@John Swope will solicit volunteers for Testing and/or Documentation in the Slack.
@Daniel Silber-Baker will post some more information to the Slack channel about how to be included in some of the discussions happening around product and roadmap.
@Eden Huthmacher will share the feedback with the roadmap/product team about the ability to “upvote” roadmap items. @John Swope This is certainly possible. Once a roadmap ticket has been submitted (here: https://github.com/openedx/platform-roadmap/issues/new/choose), we will embed the ticket into the correlating category on the roadmap, which will allow the community/WG members to provide feedback/support on the ticket, in order to increase its level of priority. Additionally, @Edward Zarecor and @Jenna Makowski are in the process of coordinating roadmap meetings to obtain the community’s feedback on roadmap priorities more frequently. Stay tuned for more updates regarding these meetings.
@Everyone in the group should review our working group wiki page and make any suggestions they feel necessary.
