AR institute makes progress on training

The IIAR‘s training working group met again this week, and made some real progress.

Much to my surprise, I was able to set that progress back within hours.

One of the proposals that came out of the meeting was that we should use a wiki to see if we produce an common list of the topics and themes for AR training events. I was positive about the idea, because I feel it’s important that we get the widest possible input from AR people about they they found useful to learn — and what they were not told — in their own professional development.

My error was to set this up as a public wiki, which is now offline. My colleagues on the working party felt that a public wiki opened that list up to contributions from non-members and potentially raised issues of confidentiality. I just hadn’t considered that; I’d been looking at it as an open source sort of project.

Our next meeting is on January 17. If you have any topics or comments you’d like to feed into the working group, then contact us.
