Functions of Documentation

From Getting Involved!
Jump to: navigation, search

Documentations have several functions. In order to find the right form, you can reflect on how interested the particular addressee of a documentation is: A supporting organization is highly interested in quantifiable facts, a guest in a seminar is possibly more interested in an atmospheric aura. A participant in a training is as well interested in documentation, but will do this more in individualized form (like through a learning diary).

Concerning the form - everything is possible and makes sense. Text, film, photo, or products developed in the project. We selected some aspects that might help you to think about tools and ways of documentation in your initiative or your seminar:
