The starting point of the discussion is that these trends are probably indicative of our need to share more of our results, not only in these, but also in other areas of interest.

Topics of discussion
  • Do we need a "slow" medium like the monthly / bimonthly / quarterly newsletter to document / archive our cross-regional stories
    • Or we are happy with the currently available platforms in the "fast" social media (FB group)
  • Which topics are to be covered within the scope of newsletter?
    • Articles for GLAM and Education in particular can be reused?
    • What other topics would be important to cover?
  • What regularity is optimal for us?
  • Where shall it be maintained (Meta, Outreach)?
  • Shall we follow the existing organizational approaches with "This month in {GLAM; Education}"?
  • Are there volunteers to maintain the newsletter and author the texts?

Expected outcomes[edit]

Even if a final decision is not being reached, the discussion can help us better clarify our needs in terms of regional out/in-reach.

Duration (without Q&A)[edit]

40 minutes.

Specific requirements[edit]

Preferably a round table.
