Group Participants

Planning an Initial (H)FOSS (Learning) Activity

(Please discuss and record your group's approach for an initial (learning) activity. When you have a good draft description of the (learning) activity using the sections below, you could create a (learning) activity page for it by copying the Learning Activity Format with Directions.)

As a meta topic, this project not specifically for a "learning activity". To start, this project will summarize current (H)FOSS/POSSE diversity, equity, and inclusion work. In future, learning activities may develop. Instead will currently focus on DE&I resources to be used by instructors and students as they explore/learn HFOSS. [Roca 20-June-2018]
