1. Log the sessions you want to report on
Add your name next to a session on the reporting log to declare your intention to report on it. You can report on as many session as you like. It’s OK if there is more than one reporter for a session.
2. Attend a session
During the session:
- take notes about the speakers’ message, the audience’s questions and comments, your own reactions, and anything that might be of interest to others
- take photos of the session
- for bonus points: use Twitter to share interesting points and reactions, using the #amicalnet hashtag
3. Report on a session
Before the end of the day, shape your notes into a brief text and post it in the AMICAL 2016 category on AMICAL Connect.
- 1-3 paragraphs are sufficient. You can write more if you want, but don’t feel obliged to write a novella for each session.
- Include the session title in your post title – or part of it, if it’s too long.
- Include photos, if you took any.
- Link to the session’s page and add any other relevant links that might have been mentioned.
- Try to conclude your post with a question to seed discussion or a proposal to spark collaboration.
- If someone has already posted about this session, reply to the existing topic instead of creating a new one.
