Proposing Sessions FAQ – part two
We have gotten a few questions about session proposals that aren’t covered on the Proposing a Session page or in the original FAQ, so here’s a follow-up:
- How can I see all the sessions that have already been proposed? The easiest way is to go to the home page and click on ‘Sessions’ under Categories. It should pull up all sessions and session ideas.
- What should I include in my session proposal? We would suggest that your proposal contain, at minimum, a brief description of the topic; some information about the session format (Is it a discussion? Will you be working collaboratively? etc.); and an idea of what you want to come out of the session with (progress on a project, a new proposal, some new friends, etc.). You should also tag your post in the ‘Sessions’ category.
- Will you look at my session proposal before I post it? It’s really not necessary. The program is driven by the participants, and we will have a chance to tweak proposals during the first session of the day. If you really want to run your idea by someone, you can email it to one of the organizers and ask us to look at it. Of course, the longer you wait, the less likely it is that we will have time to do so.
Any other questions? Contact the organizers (Melanie Schlosser or Louie Ulman) or leave a comment.
