Subject: Call for award committee members
The Sakai Teaching and Learning Group is forming the 2010 Award Committee to oversee this year's Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award. Each of the past two years we've had a strong applicant pool and selected two outstanding finalists. If you missed the winners' 2009 presentations in Boston, you can watch Andrea Crampton at http://www.vimeo.com/5610058 and Edith Sheffer at http://www.vimeo.com/5623121.
If you would like to view last year's entries they are available on the OpenEdPractices.org web site http://openedpractices.org/courses. The evaluation rubric used for the award is located at http://openedpractices.org/files/TWSIA_Rubric.pdf.
We hope to continue the success of 2008 and 2009 and are looking for committee members that represent many different groups within our community, so please don't hesitate to sign up even if you don't have a teaching and learning background. Please contact Kate Ellis (email@example.com) or Susan Roig (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in working with us.

NOTES from Debrief:
- Updates/changes to application process on OpenEdPractices.org
- Do we need to change the application itself
- Allow for easier screenshots
- Address issues of setting word count
- Should we re-think OpenEdPractices in terms of how things are entered and displayed? UI changes?
- Could we use this for capturing "functional visioning" or other use cases
- How could we make the information more useful to developers and designers
- Look at workflow and how it might be improved in terms of improving interactions between developers/designers
- Could be used locally for institutions to record best practices
- End-user-support might be interested in using it as well, they are interested in engaging more on T&L issues/needs
- John will talk with Nate about improvements
- Teaching with Sakai Innovation Award feedback
- How do we encourage folks who are not extreme innovators to submit award application
- Should we create an "exemplary" category that provided a lower bar
- We could use the current rubric but not ask for significant innovation
- Sloan has an award that is aimed at "effective practice"
- We could consider bringing student from the 1st and 2nd place winners classes to the conference
- This would be great for ePortfolio projects
- We only had two active judges this year but had wanted three
- Maggie Lynch may be interested in being third judge
- Keep Karen and Ken if they are interested
- We would not have an international representative, but we could try and get folks involved in the first round of judging
- Moving some of the work to the Foundation
- Getting the word out internationally has been a challenge, Foundation could likely get the word out better
- Sue would be open to chair but could also co-chair
- Pre-conference workshop
- We might want to shift the focus from a lot of short presentations to a few in depth hands-on activities
- Workshop on how to create a course and leverage tools for innovation
- Approaches would be grounded in teaching and learning theory
- Problem-based courses, active learning, student-centered, etc.
- We need to consider the audience, are the faculty or instructional technologist/designers
