We have three new awesome ethnographers joining our team. Let’s discuss today in our bi-weekly:
Onboarding Meetings. Our Friday meetings are quite large now, so I think next week we should have 2 meetings with them. First, an internal meeting with their language team – so @Jan and @Wojt onboard Mania and introduce her to the Polish forum, coding you’ve done so far, your SSNA, etc, so she knows the terrain, same for @Richard and @hires with Djan, and @SZdenek with Jitka (and @Jirka_Kocian if he’s around, but also no worries at all if not). Don’t worry about going into technical detail, stick with what will be useful to them as they start their fieldwork – what concepts they are thinking of exploring and how that interfaces with the ones you want to explore further. Also discuss the timeframe we are working with and some practical milestones you want to achieve with the fieldwork. I recommend setting up regular meetings.
Training. Second, a meeting where they get to meet each other, since they’ll be working together. I suggest we do the three of them plus @amelia, @Jan, and @Richard, but open to ideas (just don’t want it to get too huge!). I’d like to introduce them to the platform in this meeting, too. Then they can join our next bi-weekly.
Field Manual. So they have a guidebook when they start, I think we should work together to create this for them. I started it here. You can add categories and content to it. This way you can also let them know what you’re looking for from the ethnographic studies.
Contracts. @Richard is sorting out Djan’s contract, I am sorting out Mania and Jitka’s.
Anything else we need to do? Let’s schedule these today in our meeting!
