Session Guidelines

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
  • Make a write-up on it on our Blog
  • With the writeup send a mail to FSFTN Mailing List and a brief report to FSFTN Core
  • Submit expenses details for the session during the review meeting
