NOTES from Debrief:

  • Updates/changes to application process on
    •  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

If you missed these wonderful presentations you can view them online at (see the Wednesday morning sessions in Durand).

The Teaching and Learning Group hopes to build on this year's success and is in the process of forming the 2009 Award Committee. If you are interested in working on the committee you can sign up on this page (see the next point below). Add your name to the list and take note of our meeting time on Wednesdays.

If you would like to view last year's entries they are available on the web site The evaluation rubric, which will be updated for next year's award program, is also available from this web site

We hope to have representation from many different groups within the community so please don't hesitate to sign up even if you don't have a teaching and learning background!
