In this overview workshop, participants will learn the key questions to ask and document before starting, and how to turn these into a flexible project plan that will reduce stress and set your project up for success. These include:

  • Identifying a project team and defining roles
  • Finding support (money and labor)
  • Ideation
  • Scoping
  • Accessibility and inclusion
  • Copyright and licensing
  • Platform decisions
  • Crediting project participants ethically
  • Documentation
  • Sustainability (of people and of platforms)
  • Promotion

By the end of the workshop, participants will understand what they need to know before beginning a digital project and have a toolkit of resources to help them plan their own.
