A sprint is a chance for people to get together and work on creating something that they’ll all benefit from.
A number of people sit together and work independently or in pairs towards a common goal. The fact that everyone’s in the same place makes discussing problems and coming up with solutions much easier.
The sprint sessions will take place in the Herschel learning lab, where groups can gather round large tables with a central PC and display screen, while remaining connected to other groups in the room.
For those who don’t find a group they can contribute to, we’ll also be running a “what I want from e-assessment” board in the same room, where attendees can write down questions or problems on a whiteboard and discuss potential solutions with others.
