Gsgi-all -- Gradschool for Geoinformatics - announcement and discussion list


About Gsgi-all
English (USA)

GSGI meetings take place once a month.


…::: 1. Lightning talks :::…

Instead of broadly talking about your tasks last month, please discuss 1-2 of the following topics. This can be a single sentence, or a longer response.

The topics are [pick min. 1, max. 2 from the previous month]:
* A new technique I have learnt last month
* A useful recent experience worth sharing
* Something that feels like a success [explain why]
* An epic fail
* Something I was counting on but it hasn’t happened
* A mistake I will never make again
* A problem I am struggling to solve [explain]

You can take up to 5-10 minutes for this, if you want.

…::: 2. Discussion :::…

One person picks a topic for the next month. When sending out the topic for the next meeting, please attach a few "guiding questions”: things that you want to get out of the other attendees. Think of this as crowdsourcing: personal experiences, personal preferences, and useful tips.

Example: if the topic is “How to do great presentations”, the guiding questions can be:
- “what is the best/worst talk you have ever seen”
- “what annoys you the most when listening to presentations”
- “have you ever consciously improved something in your own presentation style”

Here is a list of previous topics:
