  • Listen, identify and then lower barrier for participation (Is it password sign-up issues, social comfort/adoption barriers, other collaborative barriers?)People participate out of passion, interest, need for their own learning (Help them envision how this could happen) Foster core community development (Communicate vision/ goals to core then work closely (phone calls, small group meetings) and help them shape and communicate them to others)
  • Create simple ways to sustain relationships w/non-core members (listserves, webinar updates for potential contributors)Develop ‘trust’/credibility (So others will want to continue to be involved)
