Week 4 PMWC check-in

Like Comment

Hello all,ย 

I wanted to check in to see how you are getting on with things this week. How is everyone? Does anyone have any questions?ย 

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

VICAR OF DIBLEY CLIP

This is a clip of the first-ever episode of the Vicar of Dibley, maybe you have seen it before?! It is very English! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ 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.

WILDTUNES

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

OPTIONAL INTERVIEW PREP SESSION

For those career searchers amongst us, a wee reminder that before the live sessions on Wednesday we will be doing an optional session to think about how questions about project management might be answered in an interview. 9.30 am or 5.30 pm BST. If you are keen, prepare an answer to the following potential interview question: "Can you explain how the project management training you list on your CV can help a project have conservation impact?โ€. Then we will split into breakout rooms to practice this and give feedback to each other.

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

All the best,ย 

Beth

Beth Robinson

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!

Hi Beth, 

After filling out the 'Control Processes 2' tab on the classroom sheet, I noticed that the last two columns are still blank. Is says they are automatically calculated but mine still show nothing even after the other columns are filled, have I missed something? 

Thanks, Bonnie

FEEDBACK:

That clip is SO English! Love it!

So I guess one thing that could've gone better is that they all show up on time - hence the misinterpretation as to why some information wasn't covered initially (the death of Reverend Pottell). However, it was covered in the beginning but the guy with the bladder issues missed it!

It's good that all roles are established and stated so everyone knows what they are doing! And at least the Minute-taker asks questions to clarify when he's not sure :-) Although he's a little hard of hearing and missed a bit of info...
