The application forms for participants and for challenge®s are set up. This is how to collect the data and keep an overview.
The participants applications go now through a Lime Survey. Team members, please ask Sam @cameralibre for access to the surveys.
The data should be copied to this DOCUMENT. Here we keep track and an overview over the numbers.
Applicants have to say on what days they want to attend. When copying the data form the survey to the document add „0“ to the days, they want to attend and when they get their o.k. make a „1“ out of that „0“. So we can see how many are joining on what days.
The application form used to be at this wordpress page going to an email account – email@example.com. All the applications from that email account are already in the document. If you need access to the applications in that account, ask @Lars2i.
Most challenges come to us via friends but there is also the possibility to apply formally with a challenge. This application go through a wordpress page and arrive at the email account firstname.lastname@example.org. Procedure right now is: When the challenge is not to big (to many people, to many noise or whatever) and fits into the OSCEdays focus, challengers get imediately their ok. Bigger or complicated challenges will be discussed by the Team first. But no such challenge has arrived yet.
could/should we ask applicants to indicate what kind of challenge they are interested in when they apply? Do we want that applicants can easily move from one challenge to another or do we want that they have to decide in which challenge(s) they want to participate?
I guess, there is already a question, where people can tell us, on what challenge they intend to work. It is not mandatory since there were not so many challenges when the form was created and i think it should stay that way.
I think it is good, to allow simple moving between challenges. Do you think different?
I currently do not know who wants to participate in which challenge. Thus it is a bit difficult to estimate the number of participants per challenge and to define the exact challenge (because certain challenges need a certain level/quality of knowhow).
If people can move from one challenge to another too easily, it might be a bit difficult to really work on a challenge without explaining everything from the beginning again and again. But maybe we can select one person from each challenge (the ambassador of the challenge) who explains the challenge to “newcomers”.
Should we define a deadline until when participants can apply or do you want to keep it open until the event? I feel that it would be really good to know at least 1-2 week in advance who wants to participate in which challenge…
I think it would be really good to send a REMINDER to all the applicants of the OSCEdays in Berlin today in the afternoon! And also tell them that it starts tomorrow at 10am sharp (door open at 9.30?).
