A message from S3 co-developers Lili and James
We'll have integrated learning from the Community Beta experiment to develop the platorm based on what we learn. We'll be providing a variety of options to meet yours, and future members' needs. We expect this will include:
You will be able to choose the option that suits you best!
Whatever your background, interest or experience, you are welcome to join the community. Basic membership is free of charge.
You are also welcome to sign up for the subscription-based practitioner plan. Places will be limited for now. We are accepting members on a first come, first served basis.
The subscription-based professional plan is by application only. To apply, you will need to have participated in at least one LearnS3 Practitioner Level 1 program (or equivalent) in the past. You will also have experience using S3 patterns and be working with others (or intending to) to help them learn about and apply S3.
Some, but most of the content generated in the community will only be available for members. To join the community, you'll need to agree to our Terms and Conditions. These include a copy of our Member Guidelines and Terms of Confidentiality for Group Members. We'd like to ensure a confidential environment where you and others can talk in confidence about yourself, your organization and where appropriate, your clients. For this reason, most of the content will be accessible to community members only.
However, in the interest of doing all we can to help people learn about S3, we might re-purpose some content from learning sessions into generic resources that we can share with the wider world.
You'll have opportunities to verify and deepen your knowledge and understanding, complete regular assignments (optional), and exchange with other members about their experience and learning. On top of that, the bi-monthly Learning Sessions will focus on your particular questions and learning needs.
We are intending to commit extensive time and energy into growing this community platform, both now and in the future. We'd like to be able to do this in a way that is sustainable for us, considering the time and energy this project requires. Fees for subscription-based plans go toward remunerating us for our time in developing, hosting, and nurturing this community. Making an economic contribution is also an opportunity for you to contribute toward the ongoing development of this new platform and toward enabling more people in the future to learn about and get the best out of S3.
These are sessions dedicated to community building, peer-to-peer learning and exchange. They include practical sessions, and utilize formats like Open Space, World Cafe, Wise Crowds and Troika Consulting to facilitate conversations and meet a diversity of learning needs. We'll meet twice a month, online! Timings will vary to increase the likelihood of you being able to attend some of the sessions.
We will commit time to facilitate Learning Sessions, in an endeavor to meet certain learning needs. One of the two monthly sessions will be a Q&A where answer you questions. Other sessions will include opportunities for practice, teaching sessions and feedback on specific cases. Sessions will be recorded and available for members afterward.
with any further questions or feedback you'd like to share.
We'll be sharing our learning and will keep you up-to-date as the community evolves.
