The Public Engagement and Consultations team at Privy Council Office is working on a pilot project.

We want to establish indicators to define a success criteria for public engagement and consultation.

We want to answer the question: what does good public engagement and consultation look like?

We want to inspire and connect people by showing what worked well

Objectives of the project:

  • To collect 12-15 case studies on public engagement and consultation conducted by the Government of Canada.
  • Show the processes, tools and resources available to conduct public engagement and consultation projects.
  • To contribute to the growing open source library of public engagement and consultation case studies at Participedia.

(ongoing iteration of objectives)

We love the Participedia model (conversation started on github here and would like to know more about how we can use it as an avenue to share the case studies for the pilot.

Taken from our initial email to Participedia

A few things we are interested in knowing:

  • The data model for all the consultation metadata (displayed on the right hand side of the case/methods pages), and the data model for the main content

  • Ways we can add or adjust the content sections to include other types of content such as icons, diagrams, links, etc.

  • How can we improve the look and feel of the pages to provide better visual clarity for the readers?

  • API and other ways of sharing and comparing consultation projects

This is an excerpt from our email conversations to provide some context of the discussion.


Posted by Patrick

Hi Luisa! This is an exciting email to receive! Unfortunately, I'm quite busy today, and so unable to join a call. (Oddly enough, I'm aactually meeting with members of Etalab in NYC, in regards to Pol.is :)

Having said that, I'm not participating in Participedia at all, and so I'm probably the participant with the least information to share :)

But, given that the v3 source code is public, I looked into a few of your questions. (Keep in mind that this is the upcoming v3, NOT the current website at participedia.net!)

  • re: data models cases and "main" content (presumably you mean "methods"?) can probably be gleaned from the test data hosted in the source code: (https://github.com/participedia/api/blob/master/migrations) (for example, cases.csv and case_something.csv)
  • re: API. New site appears to use an open standard for APIs. This means the API comes with free and pretty documention, that will look a lot like this: https://swagger.io/swagger-ui/ If you can get a developer to run through the build process for this code repository (and host it somewhere for test), then you should be able to explore their API from the browser.
  • re: improve visual look. I would imagine this would require having a visual designer on staff to contribute to the public codebase. But I'll let the project maintainers speak for themselves on this :)

Question for the maintainers -- would it be possible to host a demo version of the upcoming v3 participedia somewhere like beta.participedia.net? That might allow more stakeholders (particularly those with less technical skills) to contribute meaningfully in the GitHub issue queue in regards to decisions you're making for v3.

Anyhow, keep me posted on your call! If, for this meeting, you felt like testing out a variation of the Taiwanese Digital Minister Audrey Tang's principles on communication transparency, then I would definitely listen/watch/read afterward ;)

Posted by David

Hi everyone.

Very happy to get these emails. let me cc a few more people who are closely involved in the project.

I'm in a rush, so will be brief, but: you should check out participedia.xyzhttp://participedia.xyz, which is our staging site for the next version. You'll find a very refreshed visual look, which we think is much more readable. There's also a focus on making content easy to find, and a bit of a decreased emphasis on navigation by the data model, because we found that model-centric queries are easier done with the raw data set. As Patrick explains (I love having people read the source!), we are happy to export the data through standard APIs which will make it easy for computationally savvy users to do whatever data transformations they need to.

I think it'd be great to get a call setup to discuss the plans for Participedia and how we might be able to collaborate. Jesi is probably the best person to lead that scheduling challenge.

Posted by Patcon

Nice! Thanks so much for making time, David!

To all: Any chance we could consider moving this conversation public? As I alluded to, myself and Liz Barry (who wrote the initial English article on Polis and vTaiwan) met with Etalab today in NYC. It turns out that they (as a locus of France's digital/open government efforts) are eager to help civil servants understand the tool landscape, just as it seems we all are. They are taking a slightly different approach of curating a small basket of several tools whose vendors can meet their evolving criteria. But they seemed very interested in both the value proposition of an open source Participedia, and the idea of the project's partnership with civil servants.

I was telling them about the GitHub issue queue in which this thread originated, and also pointed out some others that I felt were great examples of outside experts jumping in.

Anyhow, they were very interested, but it felt antithetical to inform them that today's update was not available to participate in or follow along.

Might we be able to find an acceptable public channel for continuing this conversation?

Regardless, very excited about this conversation!

Best,
-patcon

Hi, all,

I'd like to take the opportunity to chime in and say that we at Participedia are very interested in continuing this discussion via whatever channel you prefer. I serve as Participedia's managing director, reporting to the project director/co-founder, Mark E. Warren, and the rest of our executive committee.

I will be unavailable from Noon today through this coming Tuesday, but please feel free to contact our Design & Communities Coordinator, Jesi Carson, to help organize a time for a few of us to talk.

Best,

@patcon @davidascher Let's shift the conversation here. Please feel free to loop in others who you think may be interested in getting this pilot off the ground.

Having a nicely documented API really opens up the opportunity for content on Participedia to be shared to other websites beyond the current pilot. It also makes curating content for different audience segments much easier, considering the fact that practitioners are not the ones who need to access these case studies. It is important to also show the potential of this pilot in relation to the larger site. Thoughts on how do we demonstrate the pilot as an MVP?

The staging site for v3 looks stunning!

I am very interested in hearing Pol.is 's experience of visualizing topic responses distributions for the participants to help people understand the landscape. Maybe it can help our team to develop more informative visual cues to illustrate where a particular case study fits in the overall consultation process.

Also Thanks @inthedistance for setting up this thread :)

Cheers,
Luisa

A few comments on some of the specific points brought up in #23 (comment)

a) the data model for participedia is under review, as the original model had a bunch of problems both from a data rigor point of view as well as various other concerns. I would encourage focusing for this pilot on things that don't require knowing the final data model, as it's likely to hold up progress. The balance we're looking for is a model that is light enough that broader audiences both understand it and are willing to submit data, but not so light that it precludes quantitative analyses in the long term. The v2 model is currently rich enough that in practice only active participants in the project are contributing data, and even for that restricted audience there are the usual taxonomical debates.

b) The content area currently (and when I say currently I always mean the v3 site which isn't the official site yet) supports the usual rich text markup, including links. We can add support to uploading inline images in a later release, but it does also support adding images and links to videos as metadata on the case/method/organization.

c) The look and feel in v3 is obviously different (and we think, better). Let us know if you have specific suggestions, but in general we'd rather have a consistent design approach for all cases/methods/orgs for the data seen via the participedia site (obviously other sites using the same data can display it however they want)

d) the API for participedia v3 is self-discoverable at https://api.participedia.xyz/. There are likely bugs in the API documentation, and if you find them please file them.

In general, for participedia v3's implementation, we encourage bug reports on https://github.com/participedia/frontend/issues for issues having to do with the front-end and data issues, and https://github.com/participedia/api/issues for issues having to do with the API server.

Hi, all – I’ve taken the liberty of preparing a draft agenda for our Oct 2nd call. Please feel free to suggest changes. I am happy to help facilitate the call from our side, and invite one or more of you to guide us through PCO’s part of the discussion.

Earlier in the github thread the PCO team requested “the data model for all the consultation metadata (displayed on the right hand side of the case/methods pages), and the data model for the main content”. The best way to see the current data model is to register on participedia.net and select “edit” for one of the cases. Then scroll down a bit until you see a row of tabs (overview, location, media, purpose, etc). Selecting these tabs allows you to see the questions & responses that generate the data displayed on the right-hand side of each case. The data model for “methods” can be viewed using a similar approach.

As David noted, we are currently revising our data models. The data model for cases is 95% done and we hope to add it to the xyz site within a few weeks. In the meantime, we are about to begin revisions on the data model for methods. Changes in the two data models will not be radical. We are simply trying to create a framework that accommodates a wider range of “real world” political contexts, while also making transparent the assumptions behind the models.

Best, - pat


DRAFT Agenda

  1. Introductions
  2. PCO elaborates on their stated objectives, e.g., how expansive a range do you want to feature of “goals, process, tools and resources available to people for public engagement and consultation projects”?
  3. PCO shares its sense of the ways in which the Participedia data and platform can help them meet their project objectives.
  4. Participedia provides updates on status of its v3 implementation, including the new platform and data model.
  5. Identify potential next steps.

An update from the meeting on 10/2/2017 that
@davidascher @plscully and @jesicarson and I had on Participedia and the Privy Council Office Case studies project.

  • Discussed ongoing collaboration in terms of a mutual shared interest in producing high quality case studies that create indicators to define a success criteria for public consultation.

  • Participedia will share designs and data model as they become available to support our case studies.

  • Timeline for Participedia to launch new version of the site is aiming for early next year, with user testing currently underway. This aligns well with our intended timeline of completing case studies in the new year.

Looking forward to continuing the discussion!

@inthedistance Thank you for this summary, which aligns with our sense of the meeting.

Per your question as to whether any other governmental agencies are working with us in a way similar to what PCO envisions, here are some examples of cases developed in partnership with the World Bank's Governance Global Practice, in which two the Bank’s Kenyan field consultants used Participedia’s data model to document examples of participatory budgeting in Makueni and West Pokot Counties.

And here is an example of a case developed in partnership with the "Tuscan Regional Authority for the Guarantee and Promotion of Participation" by Participedia research assistants at the University of Coimbra's Centre of Social Studies (Portugal). This case focused on redevelopment of Florence's airport. It still needs a bit of editing, but I've included it here to give you a sense of the range of types of projects that Participedia is documenting.

Also please note that we will be happy to identify one or more student research assistants working on our SSHRC Partnership Grant who, if you like, could help PCO develop your cases.

@jesicarson @plscully - Hi all, hope everything is well. As I progress further into the case studies I am refining my methodology. I am wondering, can I get a list of all possible fields for the purpose and process category? I am trying to create some common terms and want to map the options on participedia back to the interview questions and an engagement template we are working on. Thank you!
data fields for purpose

commented Oct 23, 2017

@inthedistance @jesicarson - Hi! I will send you links via email to strong drafts of the new purpose and process fields. We'd rather not do a public posting of draft data model.

Two of the biggest design questions we are working through as we finalize these are (1) how to re-structure things so that users don't select a large number of responses for any given question. We've learned that doing so on the current site makes it very difficult for analysts to make sense of the information, so we need to implement some sort of priority setting mechanism. And (2) relates to how to capture & code cases that include multiple components, each of which may have different purposes and process elements.

I will also send you a link to some guidelines that many users have found useful.

commented Oct 24, 2017

@laurawesley If I understand you correctly, your concern is that providing a restricted list of options under "purpose" and other categories -- what we refer to internally as the "fixed fields" -- will limit our crowd sourcing capacity. We are trying to strike a middle ground by combining the limited options presented in the data forms with the open, searchable text allowed in each case's narrative section. We also give users the ability to suggest new options. We will catalog & review all suggestions for new options as they arrive, periodically updating the data fields as necessary.

Also, please keep in mind that users can use other categories such as issues/topics and participant recruitment strategies/tactics to help define each case's purpose.

I have attached a 2016 paper by two members of our team that helped inform design of our new data model. Among other insights, it explains how providing too many options actually reduces Participedia's explanatory power.

BTW, if you like, you could increase the number of users to 2600+ and of cases to 750+ . And although the website says we have many more methods and organization entries, its best to leave them at the numbers in this chart because we will be culling many of the entries in those last two sections.

Hi all, I am working on a small open source project listing curated sets of use cases/projects/case studies: https://clarity.codefor.nl it runs on top of an api https://cbase.codefor.nl

Next step would be to make it interoperable with other such platforms, by 1) collecting the set of all platforms for sharing projects/use cases/case studies: https://clarity.codefor.nl/cbase/project-repositories-50219f7e 2) checking out their data formats (and possibly api's) 3) defining an exchange format that matches up with 90% of the data formats 4) develop proxy services for the platforms (that scrape or query their content and transform into data exchange format) 5) build central search interface (and also offer api to the decentralized platforms)

Would love your feedback.

@jgroenen The Participedia data is licensed under the Creative Commons (https://participedia.net/en/legal), so it is open for reuse under those terms. We are in the process of releasing a big update to the site which will change the APIs, which will continue to be open. I will be updating out documentation of the APIs and making examples, but right now we are focused on getting the new site finished and in production, so that may take some time.

@jesicarson thanks! Would you be in favour of using a public Google Drive folder hierarchy for resources like this that a stakeholder community might appreciate having in one place?

In other open organizing groups I work with, we have two non-nested folders to minimize confusion:

  • <Project> - Public. Public can view. (Liberal edit access with clear "ask" process. When possible, docs have "can comment" turned on, so suggestion mode can be used by anyone, logged in or not.)
  • <Project> - Privileged. Only invited can view. (Clear "ask" process.)

We also keep a document in public about which resources are kept privileged, who manages them, and why they are privileged. This means that even thegeneral form of private resources are legible to everyone (to the degree that its non-detrimental), and there is a specific person who can easily be approached for access and questions -- using suggestion mode for changes even allow :)

I'd be excited to work together on the above if it sounds like it might work for us!

I created a folder here and invited you as editor, just to demonstrate:
https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1IAmN82zXU39quDnTqioFOsDYJ33uDh4i

EDIT: For my own convenience, searched the participedia project issue queues and linked any public docs/folders into the one of created -- these can be removed later if we want to pull them over in a more organized folder way :)

@patcon I'm not opposed to it, just conscious that the interim package I provided in this thread isn't Participedia's final look and feel, and as we lead up to the launch it will likely be adjusted. Maybe we should wait until the launch (early 2018) to announce access to a public folder with updated graphics? @plscully what do you think?

commented Dec 9, 2017

Ah, thank you for voicing that! I think I understand the need for controlling expectations and deliverables, but I think I did a poor job of explaining and so conflated audiences.

To clarify where I feel something like this might fit: the resources wouldn't be for people interested in final things -- it would be a piece of growing a fuller community of collaborators interested in the same outcomes and steps that your "internal" team cares about -- just as you couldn't operate without access to those resources, a collaborator community (who might be hoped to have a comparable sense of ownership) would probably find those resources to be an important piece as well :)

I suppose it's about blurring the boundaries between internal and external collaborators...!

But I realize I'm perhaps making assumptions about the sort of community that the team has energy to cultivate. I love love love the idea of an open community around the whole effort, larger than just the code. And I'm interested in doing some legwork to help organize openly, but I couldn't offer that (or even propose how it might work) without this sort of access to raw information resources, which might be earlier materials than traditionally imagined audiences might expect :)

Anyhow, thanks so much for considering these thoughts! Happy weekend!

@patcon @jesicarson Hi Pat – Thank you for encouraging us to think about additional ways we can open-up our content to increase participation and ownership in Participedia. Other than for a few types of content such as lists of potential cases that users might want to contribute, we haven’t yet given serious thought to the type of cataloguing you’re suggesting. As things now stand, just about everything in our google files is open to the 100+ people who form the core group working on our SSHRC grant, but as you suggest, we can & probably should make much of this open to many more people.

I would like to take you up on your generous offer to help us with this, but I’d like to delay work on it for a few more months. We are behind on a few important deadlines – most of which are related to building our new website and rolling out a communications/engagement campaign – so we need to keep new projects to a minimum. In fact, after seeing your folder I changed the permissions to “specific people” for some of the docs you identified. I doubt that we would receive many comments if we left them open, but given everything we have on our plates, I’d rather not risk having to respond to unsolicited input right now.

In the meantime, if you have examples of how other projects have shared this type of data (that is, info other than code), we’d love to see them. I’m especially interested in the strategies that inform different approaches to sharing what many people might consider to be “insider” information.

@jesicarson @plscully I sent the invite for tomorrow for Google Hangouts. Let me know if you received it. I scheduled it for 3:00-3:30 EST for the equivalent of 12:00 PST. Hope that works!

@jesicarson @patcon started issue thread for decision tree - see above and Google folder. Feel free to put anything in there. I will be adding the mapping I was working on and other documents soon enough.

Hi! @inthedistance suggested that I post this research on public engagement goals here. @plscully this is the draft paper I sent you last month. Thanks for any feedback! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lKW8MXe0_bDiuLfbA6JBM6rbbVPqzRg1/view?usp=sharing
