One of the areas MeasureCamp, and indeed any unconference struggles with, is managing the session board. The common practice, which we have used, is to distribute blank post-it notes or A5 art cards to attendees to use.
After the last London MeasureCamp, Tim Leighton-Boyce made a simple practical suggestion. Why don’t you design a template that anyone can download and use in advance?
Jessie Scoullar volunteered for the task and has produced great results which we at MeasureCamp Cardiff have borrowed from our London colleagues! In the templates are spaces for tags, providing more information about your session. The tag options are:
So please, prior to MeasureCamp, feel free to download & print off a copy yourself so you can write your session in advance. In large clear writing – remember that it needs to be readable from the back of a crowd. If your handwriting is terrible, get a friend to write the card for you. Use a marker, not a pen!
One you are done, feel free to take a photo & share on social media. Ask for feedback in advance, did you get the tags right? Bring with you so you can stick on the session board as soon as it opens.
Thanks again for MeasureCamp London for their efforts on these!
