A Project for Organizing Seminars

About The Seminar Organizing Approach

This work reports on the firsthand experiences of a self-organized team of engineering students using agile content development and online tools to overcome the obstacles of organizing seminars.
We also present evidence that supports the improved attractiveness and accessibility of developing contents, as well as the feasibility of self-organizing approach. The data demonstrates the organizers' equal involvement in the whole process, and points to their balanced workloads.
It has moreover been observed that the time spent on content development decreases over time when following the proposed organization scheme.
Our work constitutes the first step toward providing academics with documented guidance regarding the agile organizing process. We intend to contribute some guidelines to high quality seminar organization with increased accessibility.
