Projects do not always go according to plan. Sharing what you learned can help you and others plan similar projects in the future. Help the movement learn from your experience by answering the following questions:

  • What worked well?
  1. Sending out a RSVP form to preregister participants to avoid IP address blocked on event day. This made transition to editing very easy.
  2. Making refreshment available made participants to feel more relaxed and refreshed.
  • What did not work so well?
  • Relying on internet from one provider made smooth editing impossible as the internet connection was very poor.
  • What would you do differently next time?
  • I would make an alternate internet connection and not rely only on a provider.
