Please be prepared to provide updates on your teams and projects.

See you then!

Hi @jan24-cohort ,

Thanks for a great session today! It was lovely to see you all and hear your projects are coming along - everyone is making such great progress!! Here is a link to our session chat.

Today we chatted about Phase 2 and what we can all expect from it. We went over the Phase 2 folder in the Curriculum Hub and how it offers you some additional resources and a checklist outlining the deliverables needed from Rebus in Phase 2. Note that Phase 2 sessions are a lot more flexible and conversational than Phase 1. Please make sure you’re bringing questions, topics, and updates on your projects to every session. Since these are monthly sessions, it’s especially important to reiterate your team’s monthly goals at these sessions and provide updates at the following session or in the forum.

Some topics that were mentioned in the Phase 1 Survey to discuss in Phase 2 were:

  • Accountability in actually doing the writing
  • Accessibility and inclusive design
  • Review and feedback - this will be a session in September in Phase 3
  • Post-release and adoptions - this will be a session in September in Phase 3
  • Showing off chapters/resources with cohorts in June

If you have other topics you’d like to discuss, or specific questions around the listed topics, please comment below and fill out the Phase 1 Survey if you haven’t done so already.

Below is a brief outline of what we’ll touch on in the next two sessions:

May’s 1:1 Session - we’ll focus on accountability. Keeping you and your team accountable and checking in on your goals you set for the month. Please be sure to sign up for a timeslot in the sign up spreadsheet (under the tab “Phase 2, Session 2 May 1:1).

June’s Cohort Session - Show and Tell. Please bring along something from your project (a chapter, author guide, table of contents, etc.) to share with the cohort. We’ll offer feedback and answer questions you may have about it! We’ll also focus on the review and feedback process at this session.

Please comment below what you and your team’s goals are for the month, and I’ll check in with you all next month!
