Overview: Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)[edit | edit source]

Sharpening the axe makes work more efficient.

"Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast." -- Amanda Brinkman[1], a Tough Mudder Champion, who attributed to the U.S. Navy Seals

"Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." -- Abraham Lincoln[2]

Doing things in a consistent way makes our skills and organization easier to learn and share. It helps a lot when working long distance, with distributed teams, and as we bring new people and skills on board.

Time spent on getting things organized and developing skills is an investment that will pay dividends many times over.

We are gathering guidelines, instructions, and "pro tips" on how to do many of the HGAPS teams' activities.

Linking them in one place makes them easy to find.

Having checklists makes it easier to learn and to do complex tasks consistently.

These also make it easier to share skills and ideas across teams and chapters, and they create a resource that others can use in their teaching.

This link uses the MassViews tool to show which SOPs are getting viewed the most.

Some pages also will be marked as HGAPS policies or SOPs that the executive team and Board of Directors monitor.

Getting service credit for work in HGAPS[edit | edit source]

Many universities, colleges, and high schools encourage community service and service-learning projects. These can be an excellent opportunity to learn and apply new skills and knowledge while making a difference. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has several different ways that students might get involved. Some of these include formal tracking and reporting in order to document the work on a certificate or designation on the degree awarded. The Buckley Service Scholars is one such program. Many students have used their projects and work in HGAPS to contribute hours towards the Buckley Service Scholar designation. Here's a link to a template with examples of how students have tracked and described their activities in the reporting portal.

Wiki SOPs[edit | edit source]

HGAPS works to educate students and professionals on how to use Wikipedia, Wikiversity, and Wikimedia. These include basics about how to navigate and use the different parts of a page, how to create an account and link it to a WikiEducation dashboard or the HGAPS User group, how to cite a Wikipedia page in another paper, how to upload images or figures to Wikimedia Commons, and other topics. Related issues include avoiding plagiarism and close paraphrasing, and what counts as a reliable source on Wikipedia vs. Wikiversity (they are not always the same sources!).

Intermediate skills include making edits on Wikiversity and Wikipedia pages in "mainspace," and tips on how to find pages related to HGAPS or psychology that could use some attention to improve quickly.

Advanced topics will include things such as building new categories, using transclusion, and other "stupid fresh" tricks we learn that would be helpful.
