PMWC week 4 check in

A few notes about this week and checking how everyone is

Like Comment

Hello all,ย 

I wanted to check in to see how you are getting on with things this week and if anyone had any questions.ย 

There are two things I would like to share with you:

1. This is a clip of the first-ever episode of the vicar of Dibley, maybe you have seen it before?! As a bonus (slightly silly) exercise, please watch the clip then comment on this post with feedback on things you think they did well in the meeting and things they could have done better. The purpose of this exercise is to practice giving feedback on a meeting so that we can improve the ways we do things and help others improve also.

2. In WildTeam class-based workshops we have a playlist we listen to during the breaks and sometimes whilst doing the exercises called 'WildTunes', here. It is a collaborative playlist where the only rule is that the songs have a link to wildlife! ๐ŸŽง๐Ÿฅ๐ŸŽนย 

See you in the live sessions on Monday.๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธย 

All the best,ย

WildLearning Specialist, WildTeam

I'm a WildLearning Specialist with WildTeam, a bit of a odd job title. My main role is to design, deliver and organise both our online and class-based training workshops. One of the best parts of my job is meeting other conservationists and learning about the work that they do. I really enjoy geeking out reading teaching theory and thinking about ways I can more creatively and engagingly deliver learning. Before working for WildTeam I did a PhD in invasive plants and human wildlife interactions. I find it really interesting to learn about the ways people interact with nature, both when nature is being wonderful, but also when is is being a bit annoying!

Well, this was fun.

For the sake of comedy they did all well but meeting-wise not too much :).

good things: 

-they have an agenda

-one member is leading the meeting

-another member is taking notes and keeping a report of the meeting

bad things: 

-there should not be late arrivals to the meeting

-there should be no 'poop' talks...

I do enjoy the vicar of Dibley :D 
Adding to Mariasole's comments I think good points were that they clearly assigned roles at the start and everyone had a copy of the meeting agenda that they could refer to and the chair also involved the other attendees and asked if they had any thoughts. Bad points, clear abuse of power in regards to planning apploications.

Yes, definite abuse of power in regards to planning applications!
