2014 Module Development Meeting Agenda

February 21-23

UNAVCO Office, Boulder CO

Before Meeting

Complete the pre-meeting tasks on the Participant Checklist.

Meeting Goals

  • Meet and get to know your team
  • Explore the materials development process: Become comfortable in the CMS (Content Management System)
  • Review potential geodesy data types and sources related to your module theme and identify most likely candidate data sets
  • Sketch out your module: Develop a common and specific vision of your module goals and components and document it in the Checkpoint #1 workspace
  • Establish a working relationship between each other, your assessment consultant, and Beth
  • Become familiar with the assessment data collection process
  • Create a workplan, timeline, and communications plan for completing the module (including collaboration with Beth or technical expert as needed to gain access to desired data sets)

February 21, Friday

*All workshop activities will take place in the UNAVCO Board Room (perhaps moving to other UNAVCO meeting rooms for work in teams on Sat and Sun)

**The current agenda is pretty detailed because there is a lot to cover; however, because we are a small group, we certainly have the leeway to modify the deviate from the "schedule" as makes sense to respond to group needs. We just need to get through everything in the end.
