About the TrainingICCM Training Day will have 4 tracks:Mobile/Security, Maps, Data and Knowledge. Each track will have sub-sessions and directed training. Participants can elect to join in one whole track or pick the individual sessions within the tracks. The purpose of this to give more hands-on training and allow folks to learn/share in smaller groups.
This is ourICCM Pre-conference day Draft Schedule. (Note it will be updated in the coming days)
We will add moredetails about the sessions and the bios of the speakers/trainers here.
iHub Research is co-hosting the Knowledge track together with Internews and will speak on a panel about how to evaluate innovation and also how to use the new 3Vs Framework for Election Crowdsourcing. Often, we find ourselves scratching our heads to see what went wrong after a deployment of technology. As technology deployers and engaged researchers, it is important we think through the possible challenges of utilizing ICTs before launching tech-based projects. We will discuss these challenges, as well as how to potentially address them, at the ICCM Pre-Conference Training Day.
