Lesson Plans to Workshops: A Mini-Sprint

The training team has created some incredible work over the years, but none so prominent and detailed as the glorious archive of Lesson Plans.

They have actionable objectives.
They have clear steps.
They’re already detailed, vetted, and ready to roll for public use.

Ultimately, they are an excellent resource for potential video workshops!

This is a little late in the month to add to the sprint, but this is something that I’d love to see happen sooner rather than later, so I wanted to bring this idea into the public space!

While I’m wrapping up my first text-based course, there are a few lesson plans I’ve been spying that might make excellent supplementary video workshop material (such as @courane01‘s suggestion of using Demo Content) .

If this works well, we might consider how we will communicate who is working on turning a lesson plan into a workshop going forward (perhaps with a new column in the TrelloTrello Project management system using the concepts of boards and cards to organize tasks in a sane way. This is what the make.wordpress.com/marketing team uses for example: https://trello.com/b/8UGHVBu8/wp-marketing. board?)

I’d like to see if we can more quickly produce a few workshops from existing lesson plans in a sort of mini-sprint in this in-between time as some of our new training team members are onboarding. Going forward, these will be included in our monthly sprints.

If interested this next week, please pick a lesson plan that you want to “claim” or are interested in creating a video workshop for in the comments.

We can also clarify this process once we’ve seen how it goes!
