How to host a nodal course?
There is no one way to run a node. The strength of our network is in people connected across the globe, openly sharing experiences and knowledge from their particular locations and interests. While openness and collaboration are central to FemTechNet, we also recognize the importance of safety and privacy, so these concerns must be balanced with other practices.
We recommend reading our (Fem)Manifesto, the Technical Paper, and exploring this website’s Key Learning Activities, as well as watching the Video Dialogues. You are welcome to join the Online Open Office Hours (OOOHs) and the Town Hall convenings as well.
Penny Boyer has written a great guide to getting a node started. She also pulled together reading materials from various syllabi that you are welcome to consult. We have a guide to open-access and accessibility resources that may be helpful. In addition, Stephanie Rosen with the Accessibility Committee wrote this report in August of 2014.
