3. 2008-2009 Teaching and Learning Group Objectives

3.1 OpenEd Practices

How should we organize the submissions? What should we ask to share?
We need to fix what is there before. Lots of different types of info.
Normalize the type of info that is asked.
Not a content repository.
Mostly an Instructional Technologist task to add stuff. Will attract faculty as an audience.
A place for Research Practices? Might be a good idea...

  1. Redefine the submission process
  2. Call for content

3.2 Getting a better sense of what other groups are up to

We should have members of this group assigned to other groups to report back.
We should get involved from the beginning, not only at the end. Get direct input from faculty.
Have a collective voice on Jira. Push some issues for Teaching and Learning.
Keep a list of T&L priorities (pump Jira tickets in our Confluence site).
We all have to keep a close relationship with faculty locally.
Offer our services to the community to gather faculty feedback.

3.3 Teaching With Sakai Innovation Award 2009

Since the process is in place, the award committee could work a little bit more on their own.
