When: 11th December 2017
Attendance: Ian, Jim, Wendy, Adie, AJ, Crystal, Dante, Guy, Jen, Kevin, Jacques, Kris, Mary, Nicolas, Paul Schuette, Paul Slagle
Background & Expectations:
Educating For the Future was formed at CSS Silver Spring March 2017. This was derived from conversations about potential projects within the well established Emerging Trends & Technologies Working Group. As discussions progressed it was felt there were enough topics that fall under Educating, that the Steering Committee agreed to launch a brand new Working Group.
The scope of this Working Group is to educate the PhUSE community and not for the members of this project to be educated. We are looking to develop knowledge repositories so others can self educate. We have tools that will allow us to communicate our findings such as Wiki, Website, Mailshots, Social media etc.
Expectations from project members is to primarily have general knowledge about the agreed topics, look to build a framework, internet searches, be the curator, handle the communications, set up repositories.
Team confirmed 3 initial topics to focus on initially.

Understand what we need to change and how to make use of these technical skills
