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

  • What worked well?
  1. The provision of the requirements for the sessions went well, that is, space, data, refreshments etc.
  • What did not work so well?
  1. The timing did not work well because as a mainly student environment, the availability of students depends on the school calendar. This was severally disrupted during the proposed period of the meetings by several down-tooling by both the academic and non-academic staff of the institution
  • What would you do differently next time?
  1. Next time, we will try to have a good grasp of the academic calendar of the school before we make a map of our own time table
  2. We will also make adequate provisions for transporting students from their various locations to the venue as most of them being students complain of inability to move themselves to the venue.
  3. Extra laptops and other devices will be looked into as very many students came without laptops or mobile phones that can be used for editing
