Seminar Ideas

From CoMakingSpace Wiki

Similar to the event ideas page, this is a collection of ideas we are keeping until a good opportunity to organize them comes along. Seminars are like classes: the instructor should know the topic very well, e.g. after working on it as a project, and be able to teach others step by step. However, you may suggest topics here even if you are not ready to teach about them yourself - we will see if someone else would be able to!

Once a seminar receives its own page in Category:Seminars it should be deleted from this list.
If you planned your seminar and now want to host it as an event, please see how to organize an event.
