- Last week to discussed doing some preliminary work and then communicating this out to a larger audience.
- Robin suggests we pick the most fundamental themes right away.
- Janice: Fundamental to whom? Portfolios are different from tradition training, for instance.
- Josh: We need a common understanding of themes and workflows.
- David: We need to make a case that these are important teaching and learning themes.
- Josh: We could move this to a Google docs if needed.
- Janice: Assessment has to be included.
- What we are looking for are meta-capability, things that should be available from anywhere.
- We might need to split "Assessment" in more specific terms like "self-assessment", "peer assessment", etc.
- David: Portfolios need to be fleshed-out more.
- Janice: Portfolios are tool and workflow at the same time. One can use a portfolio tool and not build a portfolio, or can build a portfolio without a portfolio tool.
- Josh: We need vignettes to demonstrate portfolios.
- Lynn: Reflection seems to be more granular. Self-expression might be an umbrella term for reflection.
- Not easy to associate some of these themes with 1 or 2 CG principles.
- David: We might need to split Content Management in multiple smaller ones.
- Robin: Let's define these ones first, we'll see which ones need to be refined later.
- Josh: Please define tracking.
- Tracking is a way to keep traces of the completion of activities.
- Lynn: It's another form of feedback to improve student success. It is a kind of report.
- Mathieu: Tracking involves reminders and notifications.
- Josh suggests to take off-meeting time to complete the work, discuss issues during the virtual meeting.
Robin: What are the goals of the virtual meeting? Any deliverable? \[Good question, but not mine; maybe Lynn. RH\]
- Josh published some of these goals.
From last week:
