General description

Under the name of .py.rate.chnic sessions, the second-year students from the Experimental Publishing Master program invite you to participate in a series of hands-on workshops, related to the topics of their graduation projects. Each workshop offers the participants an opportunity to engage with the students' research by partaking in their processes, experiments, and discussions.

.py.rate.chnic sessions are a series of collective work-sessions organized by the XPUB second-year's students and attended by first-years.

.py.rate.chnic planning document

To prepare the sessions we will work on a small planning document.

Making this document will be helpful for announcing the .py.rate.chnic sessions to XPUB1.

This document includes:


short description:
  what will happen? [one line!]
  why (relevance)? [one line!]
  outcome (what will be goal of the session)? [one line!]

who (is organising the session):

maximum amount of participants:
preparations (what do participants need to prepare before joining the session?): 


The format of a session can be anything!

A few examples:

  • hack-a-thon: where you ask the participants to explore a subject, by making prototypes together (open-ended, technical, DIY)
  • workshop: departing from a specific question / technology / prototype / ... inviting others to engage with it in a specific way (methodology, how-to, tools)
  • (book) sprint: where the group writes collaboratively a manual / research text / book / and produce a website / pdf /... (collective practices, workflows, reading/writing)
  • test session: where a given procedure / methods is tested on the participants and at the end feedback is given (feedback, testing the limits)
  • ... or any other form of activation :--)


These could include for example: a text, software installations, material to bring, ...

Using a preparation list is useful, as it will make it easier to start quickly, be a bit productive (installing things often eat up a lot of time!) and have more fun.

TIP: Do not overload the participants with too many preparations.
