Day 1: Public Brainstorm (Gumroad 14 Day Product Challenge)
The first day of the Gumroad 14 Day Product challenge was all about identifying what is the product we want to create.
To identify what I will be creating I have applied two strategies:
- Public brainstorming.
- Requests for Feedback
For Day 1 I decided to go for a public brainstorm of ideas on Twitter:
I have joined the #14DayProduct challenge at @gumroad.— Bianca Pereira (@bianca_oli_per) October 26, 2020
The goal is to create a product within 14 days based only on personal experience on the topic.
That brings the question: What do I know enough to be able to teach? Let me go through some ideas 1/ pic.twitter.com/HWHA627f8h
As I have knowledge in different areas I find it really hard to decide on what I want to focus first (that has always being my problem). So I decided to brainstorm something in all areas:
First, some of the learnings I got in participating in academia-industry project collaborations.
I could build a #14DayProduct based on my experience in working with academia-industry collaborations:— Bianca Pereira (@bianca_oli_per) October 26, 2020
.. getting from idea to an #industry-ready prototype
.. how to manage industry-academia #research projects
.. how to do #KnowledgeTransfer#ECRchat 2/
My experience with quitting a PhD (for not knowing a lot of stuff and having a hard time) to starting again a part-time PhD 3 years later (now with WAY more knowledge):
Or perhaps I could build a #14DayProduct based on my #PhD experience:— Bianca Pereira (@bianca_oli_per) October 26, 2020
.. strategies to deal with writer's block
.. project and time management tips for PhD students
.. the basics of research paper writing #acwri
.. how to fail your PhD (quitting and back)#phdchat #phdforum 3/
My experience in starting a Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee in a highly hierarchical institution where I was at the bottom of the hierarchy. Also, how to add these values into software-related projects:
Perhaps I could tap on my knowledge on #Equality , #Diversity and #inclusion for the #14DayProduct challenge:— Bianca Pereira (@bianca_oli_per) October 26, 2020
.. influence without power: how to start an #EDI initiative?
.. creating and managing a #CitizenScience project based on EDI values#scicomm #ECRchat 4/
Finally, some vague ideas around my research topic of expertise:
Requests for Feedback
Having had a public brainstorm, without real intention on getting feedback from that. I contacted a group of friends with the following request:
Hi =) I am participating in the #14DayProduct challenge where we need to create a product (an e-book, an experience sharing course, a how-to or something like that) in 14 days.
I am reaching out to my friends for some help: If I could teach you anything that I know. What would you like to learn about?
Let’s see what I will learn from them :)
