Speech Project Writing Competition
« on: August 30, 2016, 09:36:01 AM »
Here is a bold idea:

We announce an official writing contest for speech projects. Conditions:

  • Everybody may participate
  • All contributions must be CC-BY-NC-SA-licensed
  • We find a prize (certificates, workshops or whatever assets we can find -> something VERY nice)
  • We invite a wide audience to vote

As a result we get
  • drafts for educational material
  • people tell us what they really need
  • public awareness

I like the idea, in particular I support that
  • All contributions must be CC-BY-NC-SA-licensed
I'm wondering what's the best way for composing a final version of a project guide.
  • If there is more than one submission to a writing contest, then one generally superb contribution might miss out one aspect that is very well written in another. Most likely, a combo version would be ideal to comprise all the strengths of each individual submission.
  • A wiki-style collaboration could exploit different contributors' perspectives and ideas right from the start. However, I also see a risk that piecemeal development might just result an unfocused piece of writing, instead of a speech project guide. If contributors share their ideas in a video conference first, agree on an outline and assign tasks, that might be a more promising approach.
BTW what's the projected time frame for creating these materials for the different stages of the educational programme?
