Team Goal Setting

It’s time to consider what the training team hopes to accomplish in 2023. Last year we met over 3 different sessions to plan out this year. Training Team Goals for 2022 reflect that plan.

However, we definitely didn’t achieve all of those goals. Should we continue them for next year?

I met recently with @angelasjin, who has offered to hold a team vision-setting meeting, and from that, we can launch into the following year’s goals. I’ll work with Angela to plan that first part of the meeting, along with a survey for the best times we can meet via Zoom as a team to do this.

Open Discussions

@courane01 Says

We have additional coffee hours starting for Eastern APAC  Fridays at 04:00 UTC from Dec 2nd.
Are Online Workshop co-hosting opportunities and Content Error Issues a good first issue for Contributors to work on?

Resurfacing this here:

@caraya Says

Feedback request: I’m working on 6.X updates to existing lesson plans, and I’m struggling with content organization.  If someone is going through the lesson plan sequentially, it makes sense to incorporate it sequentially with the existing content. However, if people are planning an update to the content they’ve already created, it would make more sense to put it in a separate section at the bottom of the document,
What do you think is best?

@courane01 Says

We’ve had the content usually updated right in line (sequentially).  We’re starting to wrap our heads around coordinating w/ #docs to have a changelog at the bottom of the file and a way to toggle to earlier versions of WP
