1. Follow the project dedicated topic eBook Project found at the top of this document.By following this topic, you will stay up-to-date on all things related to the project. This was created so that we can collect all questions, answers, comments, stories, thoughts, and ideas in regard to the project. The final publication will draw on all the insights provided in this topic. Among other things, you can also use this topic to ask question related to the project process, organization, and delivery.
2. Provide your storiesScroll through the eBook Projecttopic, and find those questions you are best suited to answer. Please make sure to provide answers on questions you have direct experience with. In other words, tell your story as it happened. For example, Diego Salamain his MUNPlanet answer"How do you deal with visa frauds at MUN conferences"clearly illustrates his personal experience with this particular issue. Your answer has to be both descriptive and analytical, and please offer some explanation of the problem at hand.
Answers are expected to be 300-500 words long, but can take longer form if necessary. Answers containing lots of details and context are particularly encouraged. In the final Report, your answers will used in the form of quotation and will be appropriately referenced. Those stories/answers that the majority of you find really interesting (i.e. number of upvotes and comments) will receive special attention in the form of a "Case Study" in the report where the author and the conference will be highlighted.We encourage you to answer the questions that fit your MUN experience as an organizer (e.g. Chairing, logistics, fundraising, etc). You are welcome to answer as many questions, as long as your experience and direct insight cover that area. Before posting an answer, please take care to edit the answer to your best knowledge.3. Provide your thoughts to others answersThis is really important. Make sure to upvote those answers you feel are helpful, interesting, and deserve special attention. Also, if you feel an answer should be explained in greater detail, use the commenting function to let the author know. Encouraging dialogue is expected as this leads to better consensus on what should be published in the Report.
4. Create at least 10 new questions
We already have questions waiting for you. These questions are a starting point of the discussion. Ask any question you feel is in the right context of our overall goal for the Report. You are also welcomed to answer your own questions. Think about this for a second. Most interesting and meaningful discussions begin with a question. Actually, we all love good questions. Even if we don’t know the answer, we love the fact a good question makes us go ‘hmm’. Good questions make us curious. Great questions help us to think. Asking well-crafted, intelligent questions causes people to think profoundly. When someone thinks more deeply than before, new ideas, new answers and new possibilities emerge.
In order to provide value to your fellow MUNers, asking the right questions is key. The more information provided in the details section of a question, the more value an answer will provide.
