With all the walkthroughs going up, I had a thought, and I wanted to pitch it to the site to see how y'all felt about it.
The SH course preps new SHs for how to handle a variety of situations around sessions and content evaluation, but we don't have anything to help advise folks on handling administration of a department, and I've discovered plenty of times that being a co-head is a whole different role from just being an SH. I also don't think it's anything any one of us couldn't do, but it might help to have a way to prep yourself for what to really expect, so that folks don't get discouraged from even going up for candidacy in the first place.
So, I wanted to suggest putting together a short co-heads test to help fill the gap :) Just like the other tests, the point isn't a pass/fail situation so much as an opportunity to expose a new co-head to the sort of situations they might not have experienced yet and get them thinking about how to handle the reality of helping run a department on the site.
I figure maybe 3 questions apiece, Academy, World and People, and then two or three spare that just cover general administration.
If that sounds like something y'all would like to have, I'm happy to take first crack at putting content and questions together from my experience. I recommend getting more input than mine, definitely, so that we don't end up with accidental one-track-minding going on, but it might at least give us some guidance for folks who aren't sure whether they'd be comfortable serving as a co-head to get a peek at what it's actually like so they can make an informed decision.
Thanks for your input!
