1. Briefings on project-wide developments relevant to our research teams





2. Overview of Research-Questions Teams Workflow


WE1S Team Working Space folder

  1. Work on key findings

    1. For each key finding, create a one-page Key Finding card (naming convention: KF-[team#]-[card#]) -- e.g., KF-5-2). Initial drafts of key finding cards can be kept in each team’s working folder (WE1S Team Drive > Team Working Space). Final drafts go here: WE1S Team Drive > Team Working Space > Key findings workflow > Key finding cards.

    2. Based on a KF card, draft a blog post for the WE1S Research Blog and put the draft in the blog post workflow folder: WE1S Team Drive > Team Working Space > Blog Post workflow

      1. WE1S Documentation & Dissemination team puts publishes the post online in the WE1S Research Blog

    3. Based on a KF card, create an infographic (example) and place the draft in the Infographics workflow folder: WE1S Team Drive > Team Working Space > Infographics workflow

    4. Based on a KF card and recommendations included in the underlying interpretation reports, design a hypothetical event. Place the draft in the Event design workflow folder: WE1S Team Drive > Team Working Space > Event design workflow

    5. Create other discrete outputs (such as recommendations for students, administrators, journalists, etc.) for each key finding as appropriate (which we can later incorporate in advocacy outputs or white-paper reports to be drafted in WE1S Team Drive > Team Working Space > Whitepapers workflow).

    6. WE1S to send out social media about the above.

  2. Work on new research questions 

    1. Frame a research question

      1. Operationalize the question

    2. Initially scout model(s), topic(s), and keyword(s) in investigating the question. (Use documents and spreadsheets to track this initial work.)

    3. Use modules of Interpretation Protocol

    4. Write report.

    5. Harvest "key findings."
