Documentation Resources

There are a lot of really creative ways people can captured notes, photos, resources, questions, and even write event publications. Do you have activities to help people do this? Best practices or creative ideas on how to do documentation at events?

Resources:

  • The Barnraiser: "The Barnraiser" is a 1-page daily "newspaper." In many Barnraising it has become a useful way to summarize and share in a succinct, low-burden, but regular way. The nature of "The Barnraiser" is lighthearted, but helps capture some outputs and take aways from the event.
