This week we had another ‘First Tuesday Coffee House Meeting’. Only three of us but it was a really useful chat.
In terms of Module Two: we talked about trying out different types of ‘something’ when doing pilots – not just piloting ‘an interview’ but if you think you are likely to use interview as a tool in module three, then trying doing different types of interview. On SKYPE, in person, on phone, with open-ended questions, with set questions etc…
We talked about finding a range of key words as you think about what is important to your inquiry into for instance:
Sarah is thinking about ‘motivation’ and we added the words ‘inspiration’ and ‘passion’, which was the way Sarah was thinking about motivation.
In terms of Module One and onwards: we talked about how useful Journaling is for capturing ideas. How at first you might want to make neat organised journals but after using that tool for a while it becomes a place for thoughts that manifest in a range of ways – including pictures, drawings, and writing around the edges of the page!!
We talked about thinking about ‘what has made a difference to my practice’ as a theme to question yourself as you submit work for evaluation in May.
We said that the ‘First Tuesday Coffee House Meetings’ were useful because it is nice to talk across modules and also to have a conversation that can wander or has no aim at the beginning but is built from all the people in the group contributing.
The next ‘First Tuesday Coffee House Meeting will be May 7th hope you can join us.
