February 12, 2015
10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
By Connected Learning Alliance

A follow-up to the February 5 webinar/chat on Measuring and Sustaining Participatory Politics Success.

Questions such as the following were addressed:

  • How do you show that minor or singular successes (campaign, events, etc.) are part of a larger success story?
  • What are potential connections between fandom and civics? How can fandom serve as a catalyst to become active in civic politics?
  • Lack of technical knowledge is often a barrier to get involved, how do you make specialized information more widely accessible?
  • Knowing the history of your community can give you the power and language to act. How do you employ history in your work?
  • How do you move beyond numbers to measure success?
  • When measuring success how do you balance what you DID versus what EFFECT you had?
  • When a campaign like #NotInHarrysName can take 4 years, how do you decide when a campaign ends?
  • How do you keep up morale after setbacks or failures?
  • After you achieve a goal/reach an end, how do you set new goals?
