For the 2019 convention, SPSP is introducing a new activity at convention: Working Groups. These small collaborative groups will convene during the convention to produce a deliverable item of use to SPSP members. Topics will be selected and groups formed prior to the convention to allow for pre-convention planning, and then the groups will meet for a few hours during the convention to collaborate on their work.
This is your chance to be collaborate with colleagues around the country while you are already planning on being in the same location.
Please submit a rough of your topic by December 6 by providing a few sentences about what you hope to accomplish here.
Examples of Working Group deliverables may include:
Who can propose/lead a Working Group?
Any convention attendee! What will the size of the Working Groups be? We envision working groups the size of 5-12 participants.
How will participants be selected?
SPSP will work with chosen Working Group leaders to place one call for all Working Groups, and the leaders of each Working Group will choose their participants.
What will happen with the deliverable items?
The deliverable items will be shared on the SPSP website, with credit being given to those who participated in process of creating them.
