Scheduling: using tools like doodle or mtg wizard or using institutional calendaring tools like Entourage or Outlook. MEETINGSIn person or online gatherings with an agenda Agenda building: tools like wiki to create, share or distribute using dropbox or evernote, blog, etc... i.e monthly topic calls Meeting space: collaborate like tools to capture knowledge nad communicating that act Multi-institutional collaboration on projects that are relevant to all of our institutions. PROJECTS Interrelated tasks with specific e.g faculty development strategies: tools, leaning designs, ed tech related research projects outcomes or products 1. Identify project need i.e identifying a new practice and refining it 2. Find Etug partners 3. Share resources to get project done. Facilitating the development of interest groups. So self organized people with same interest can come together. Connecting with subject experts. ACCESS TO EXPERTISE Learning from experienced practitioners Connecting to outside expertise, e.g presenters for an interest group. i.e access to subject matter experts Facilitation knowledge sharing, so expertise is exchanged through: Arum, etc... Profiles with info about member expertise, to make experts visible. Dynamic come and go nature. Foundation for it all. Self-defined outcomes of relationships you build. RELATIONSHIPS Getting to know each other Historical strength of Etug, interpersonal and organizational. i.e annual potluck dinner Multilevel opportunities, open doors, meaningful connection. Who is Etug for? CONTEXT Private, internally focused or serving How do we participate in Etug beyond the workshops? an organization, or the wider world What is the mandate of Etug? Internal i.e what is kept within the community, and External? what is shared with the wider world Is Etug a community of individuals or of representitives?
An important node in our networks. Institutional support for participation. Requirement (incentive) to share what youre COMMUNITY doing (active participant). Need to create a sense of ownership - to feel you CULTIVATION Recruiting, orienting and supporting are a member. Tools: Twitter (Facebook like?), Collaborate (space members, growing the community for real time), Linkedin (professional group). Why or i.e who made sure the new person why not? was invited in and met others Meetings are important for community cultivation. So many places to fo - it would need to be compelling. Time is an issue. Someone to create liaisons/relationships? Projects/events may be an important way to cultivate community. Faculty, many of them dont see themselves as eTech people. Make sure there are always means to push and INDIVIDUAL pull. Different members need different things. PARTICIPATION Keep building activities, hopefully people that are interested get involved. Enabling members to craft their own Great to have sessions/workshops recorded and experience of the community available afterwards allow people to access when i.e access material when and how you want it they can. Communication within institutions is difficult. Hard to get members. Find different ways to get people in, need to find other pathways.CONTENT PUBLISHING A focus on capturing and publishing what Publish: copyright issues + relevence (after the meeting). the community learns and knows Capture: online seminars, workshops, meetings. i.e Newsletter, publishing an article, etc... SCoPE is a good model - can we use for open ended conversations? International audience/participants? - broader base to draw from. Tools need to be low barrier (tools for community OPEN ENDED discussion e.x Skype?). CONVERSATIONS Picking up on themes from Twitter, workshops, etc... and bringing people together online. Conversations that continue to rise and fall Informality important - pub night once a month? over time without a specific goal Arranged by people in each locale. i.e Listserv or Webforum, Twitter, etc... Listserv may be useful. Theme based conversations - you can choose what interests you.
