Teaching, Learning, Research and Portfolios
Sakai exists to improve the quality of teaching, learning and research.

Please also consider topics for faculty members who are getting started with Sakai.
Software Design and Development
Sharing is critical among the development community. Please share development projects, design approaches, usability and accessibility improvement plans and projects. Topics may also include best practices in design and development approaches that could be incorporated into Sakai in the future. Please also consider topics for new developers who are getting started with Sakai
Beyond Sakai there is a complex ecosystem of systems and tools that support teaching, learning and research. Please share your experiences and successes integrating other solutions with Sakai to expand the benefit to your faculty and students. Share other open source projects that could expand Sakai.
Deploying, supporting and managing Sakai is critical to its success. Please share your best practices and approaches in creating and maintaining Sakai successfully for your users. Please also consider topics for technical administrators who are getting started with Sakai.
Leadership and Future Directions
Sakai is an element within your broader strategy and goals. How are institutions using Sakai to achieve strategic goals? What changes and opportunities on the horizon should be influencing the direction of the community? What other trends, advances and challenges should become part of our community planning and dialogue? Please consider topics for leaders who are in the process of evaluating Sakai and assessing strategic fit.
Framing initital announcement to encourage ideas, but let them know that they have to fit into a "track."
* Sakai CLE
* Sakai OAE
* Technology selection
Is this what you're after. or too much detail?: +1(Brainstorming here)
Hybrid Learning :-) Could hybrid come into OAE? Never mind. Disagreeing with myself as I type. "Hybrid" may take on an added meaning in OAE...
Hybrid Sakai CLE & OAE?
Open Educational Resources

Will add to Kim's Word doc with track changes and send to her as requested.

13:19 Michelle Ziegmann: I agree with Lance, and also that "open education" is a little limiting - is open education really the focus?
