Discussion: Tracking Social Learning Spaces

As we get more comfortable settling our content into our team GithubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers. Public repositories are free to host, private repositories require a paid subscription. GitHub introduced the concept of the ‘pull request’ where code changes done in branches by contributors can be reviewed and discussed before being merged be the repository owner. https://github.com/, I thought it might be time to start tracking our social learning space topics. Another facilitator and I recently very nearly scheduled the same topic for a social learning space–simply knowing where to look to see if another similar topic was in the works would have immediately fixed this situation for us.

So, how should we track Social Learning Space topics?

How do we all feel about creating a Github template with the title and description that would appear on MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. (similar but not as extensive as a lesson plan) for social learning space ideas?

To be clear, this would not replace Meetup, but it would allow us to see which spaces are in progress and which have already been created to avoid an unfortunate overlap. Adding these as issues/tasks in GitHub also allows us to better track team contributions and award badges.

Some thoughts:

  1. Some social learning spaces occur more than once (they can be repeated!), so I’m not sure the best way to track them. 
  2. It may help to have a “Planned” column, “Scheduled” column, and “Past SLS” column where frequent or semi-frequent contributors can move issues from one stage to the next… would it be okay if they moved back into “scheduled” if they’re a repeat topic?
  3. Once an SLS is complete, It would help to provide links to the recording of the SLS in this same space.

Important: It’s important to note that just because a social learning space has been taught online before, doesn’t mean it cannot be repeated for a new audience, or that a new facilitator cannot run the same social learning space on the same topic. New facilitators bring new knowledge, new audiences bring their own unique perspectives and experiences. Especially as these spaces become more and more interactive, each discussion will shed new light, attendees will build their own projects, and it will allow us to stay current with the most recent WordPress developments.

The ask: Is Github the right place to track social learning space topics? 

What is a useful way to track it–what I described, or something else? 

Please leave your thoughts in the comments. We would appreciate them!

Independent Learner Survey

This Independent Learner Survey was worked on by the team at WCEU. The hope is to open this up for any individual in the WordPress space to share how they’ve learned WordPress, what areas they’d like more support with learning, and more.

While this is not a full “needs analysis”, the goal is to make LearnWP a resource to really serves the community, from hobbyists to large scale organizations and many roles within. This survey is a first step in identifying the types of content that WordPress users are looking for.

Training Needs Analysis

Following the Learner Survey, a more official “needs analysis” should be conducted. There is a bit of an industry standard for these. @Robbie and @abhanonstopnewsuk have volunteered to help the team move further along with this. Both are seasoned professionals who conduct frequent needs analysis. A working session to begin this process will hopefully be scheduled by next week.

Naming Content Types

On LearnWP, we have:

  • lesson plans
  • workshops
  • social learning spaces
  • courses

Workshops were originally a term the Training Team used/intended to mean a series of lesson plans presented together, much like the workshops during WCEU.

The term was then applied to mean videos on LearnWP that people watched before attending discussion groups (later named Social Learning Spaces). In conjunction with the feedback from #polyglots that “Social Learning Spaces” often doesn’t translate well, the team is rethinking how things are named.

Merging Lesson Plan and Workshops

Related to the naming of content types mentioned above, workshops are now videos, roughly in parity with lesson plans. Previous effort/work has been done around what the merge could look like, including the landing pages for lesson plans.

The idea tentatively is to have the video and slides near the top, the text walk-throughs after, and tuck the teacher bits like objective statements behind a tab dropdown or something of the sort. Here are a couple proposed ideas:

The team is also thinking that adding several lesson plans together essentially become a course. The individual versions would be stand-alone, and could still be presented by a MeetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. organizer and used by instructors, or direct learners.

There is still a lot of work to be done, and further progress depends on finalizing content type naming.

Monthly Retrospective

Each month, the Training team works in Sprints. These are goals we hope to accomplish for that month. At the end of the month, we conduct a retrospective by asking ourselves a few questions. The feedback is then posted, here is an example from April 2022. May’s retrospective was delayed due to WCEU.

May Sprint 2022

  • 2 Lesson Plans were published including one in Brazilian Portuguese
  • 6 Workshops were published including one in Brazilian Portuguese
  • 1 Course was published
  • 23 items in Drafts in Progress
  • 13 items in Review in Progress (of which 4 are ready to publish)

Training Team Goals

Carried over from Q1:

  • Implement a Faculty program (like Community Deputies, name to be determined). 
  • Brainstorm and discovery for the creation of a Needs Analysis. Still in progress and a Learner Survey has been created in the interim. 
  • Create Instructor/Facilitator resources portion on LearnWP

Goals for Q2

  • Conduct Needs Analysis
  • Create content useful for WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. Europe
  • Release roadmap of new content (that isn’t tied to WP releases/features)
  • Assess content that has the largest impact
  • Overhaul the “Submit an Idea” form. Build in conditional logic for workshop, lesson plan, and course.
  • Ongoing promotions collaborations with other Make teams such as Marketing, Polyglots, Docs, AccessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers). (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accessibility), and Community

Team Comment on the Retrospective

Each month, team members have an opportunity to share what they think what went well? What could the team improve? What will the team do differently in the future? The responses from each meeting are below.

EMEA/Americas Meeting Responses
APAC Meeting Responses

June/July Sprint

For the June/July Sprint, the proposal was to simply continue working through the backlog of existing tasks.

Open Discussions

@caraya prompted a good discussion about where to put “auxiliary content” for lesson plans. This type of content could include sample code files that could traditionally not be uploaded to the lesson itself. Some proposed options included a GitHubGitHub GitHub is a website that offers online implementation of git repositories that can easily be shared, copied and modified by other developers.

News

WCEU Contributor Day 

Contributors attending WCEU will be meeting after May 24 (6.0 release) to plan contributor time and collaboration with Docs and Marketing.

Social Learning Spaces Re-naming

Social Learning Spaces is difficult to translate and the some perceive this to refer to social welfare rather than community, as discussed in #polyglots#training and #marketing. The discussion included recommendations to specify the community aspect or knowledge sharing. A post will be created to gather more formal feedback.
