 +# OpenRSA - Workshops
 +
 +[Back to RSA networks and engagement](netengage)
 +
 +The ideas below were developed in May 2012, since when the idea of relaunching OpenRSA has been put on hold. On reflection, and from a wide range of conversations,​ it may be more productive to focus development of an innovation space to pilot ideas for the RSA we would like to see.  ​
 +The next RSA. David Wilcox
 +
 +## Overall challenge and OpenRSA role
 +
 +The overall challenge that OpenRSA is addressing - in line with [out objectives](about) - is:
 +
 +How can RSA Fellows contribute to the organisation’s mission - and
 +benefit from the experience in ways that suit their needs as well?
 +
 +The Fellowship survey highlight networking as a high priority - so we
 +are working on the basis that our objective could be achieved in part by
 +helping Fellows develop personal networking in a way that also builds
 +networks with RSA.
 +
 +See [Collaborating
 +towards a more fully networked RSA.](https://​web.archive.org/​web/​20140806231618/​http://​rsafellowship.com/​group/​digitalengagement/​forum/​topics/​collaborating-towards-a-more-fully-networked-rsa) (archive link)
 +
 +We aim to explore that challenge on three fronts. How to:  ​
 +Help Fellows understand what’s on offer from RSA, and the part that they can play.
 +
 +### facilitate more opportunities for collaboration between Fellows.
 +
 +Connect Fellow-led initiatives with others outside the organisation.  ​
 +The workshop as part of an exploration. Here’s some ideas, based in part on explorations.
 +I (David Wilcox) have been running with others [at socialreporters.net](http://​www.socialreporters.net/?​page\_id=552)
 +
 +### Set up phase
 +
 +Liaise with RSA staff and any relevant Fellowship groups.  ​
 +Start our blog at OpenRSA.org,​ and report our activities there and on [RSAFellowship.com](https://​web.archive.org/​web/​20140625090559/​http://​rsafellowship.com/​) (archive link)
 +
 +Develop some questions and answers about Fellowship to supplement [guidance already on offer](rsa_fellowship)
 +
 +Dr Bob Rollins [has made a start here](https://​web.archive.org/​web/​20140723115922/​http://​rsafellowship.com/​profiles/​blogs/​how-might-new-fellows-be-better-supported-when-they-first-join) (archive link).
 +
 +Report on any network development in prospect, on the blog
 +
 +### Developing workshop issues and ideas
 +
 +Crowdsource some talking points - [starters here](talking_points) - and initial ideas to
 +address the issues (the reason for the Talking Points - rather than
 +jumping straight to ideas - is that the issues are highly complex, and
 +we need to get some shared understanding of them.)
 +
 +### At the workshop
 +
 +Provide an update on the RSA context, from the above work.  ​
 +Use the talking points and initial ideas to generate and
 +prioritise more ideas. Sort the ideas into those that can be taken
 +forward by Fellows on their own; those that can be achieve
 +collaboratively with staff; and those that can only by done by staff and
 +Board (thanks to the [Social Spaces Skills Game](https://​web.archive.org/​web/​20131231032544/​http://​www.collaborate.so/​games/​) for this categorisation). (archive link)
 +Form groups around some Fellow-led ideas
 +
 +### After the workshop
 +
 +This will depend on the pre-workshop and workshop discussions,​ but we would expect to move forward with some practical
 +action on the Fellow-led ideas.
