Team Meeting 9-Oct-2012 9-15 to 10-15
Our regular catch up and review session
Date: Tuesday 9-Oct-2012
Notes from meeting
Spent most of the time telling each other a bit about ourselves.
PeterT highlighted the importance of avoiding putting waffle into the site - we don't want teachers reading it to think that the authors don't know what they are talking about. Four ways to avoid this:
- Read about the subject and provide summaries (i.e summaries from people who are 'expert'
- Interview people who are 'expert'
- Ask questions - a good way to encourage other people to contribute to the site
- Focus on areas which are within your expertise/experience
PeterT also flagged up the importance of not 'marketing' or promoting products/services. So avoid saying 'This is the best ...'. You can express a personal opinion - but needs to be clear that is what you are doing - and you need to have personal experience/knowledge of the thing in order to do this.
We agreed that face to face meetings were much more productive than online ones ... which creates a challenge for us as some folk are not within travelling distance of MK.Go back to the Meetings page
