Planning a 3 Day Drupal Training in colleges

You are viewing a wiki page. You are welcome to join the group and then edit it. Be bold!

Based on recent training, came up with some below defaults to quickly assist those who are organising Drupal Training in Colleges. Look for suggestions from other Trainers to get details!

Request Volunteers from community to join the training program

For a student audience of 60, we will approximately require 10-15 volunteers over 3 days.

Maintain a Google sheet that captures the contact details of Trainers, Speakers using the Drupal Training template.

Identify Speakers & Trainers. It is very important that you have trainers walking around to help students while we have the Speaker present the different sessions.
