Below are some of the guidelines that FSFTN follows Before & After a Session in an Institution,
Gather details about the Venue either it is College, Institution, School, etc.
Make note of the target audience and no. of people you are going to address
Ask interested volunteers to take the session. One Core member is recommended
Take FSFTN Card along with you which has all the details in it.
Select session topics with a combination of Talks, Technical Sessions and Hands-on. Make sure to talk about the Free Software and Knowledge Commons aspect in each of these.
Interaction with the participants in most important
Make a note of the session organizers (from School or College) and team leaders. It is a +1 for leadership skills.
Get the details of the Contact person from the Venue 3 or 4 days prior to the session
Communicate the speaker profile of the volunteers to the contact person
Make a personal checklist of things to do on the day before
After the session, have an interactive talk with the staffs and coordinators about the usage of FOSS in their college, forming a User group in their college. This would nurture the relationship with the college in a better way
Don't forget to take a group picture at the end of the session. This would serve as a memory and future inspiration
After the technical sessions have been completed, in the end, Take about FSFTN and why we are here and how they could join us.
Talk about GLUG Formation and the knowledge sharing point of it.
Before leaving, ask written feedback from the participants. This is would help us review our standards.
After reaching home, make sure we have a review meeting about what happened there, with other volunteers either through Phone or Direct meetings.
Post pictures of the session in Facebook, Twitter, Mastodon, Riot Matrix, Flickr, etc
