  4. 4. Today's Context for  Fundamental Questions: Planning transition from courses based mostly on face-to-face class meetings toward courses that include online activities - in whole or in part.
  5. 5. Fundamental Questions Reflect on the “Fundamental Questions” that follow. They should always be at the heart of our work.   Think about the kinds of change likely to happen to your students, your colleagues, your institution, and yourself.    Especially with your support - active or tacit.

  8. 8. Fundamental Question 2:  What do you most cherish and want not to lose?
  9. 9.   Discuss with 1-3 colleagues. Discover how you agree and disagree, especially the surprises. Prepare to summarize and report your findings.
  10. 10. Follow-Up Questions Obstacles and Deal-Breakers &quot;Obstacles&quot; get in the way and slow down our progress, but with enough persistence and resources we can proceed anyway. &quot;Deal-Breakers&quot; are &quot;obstacles that, if encountered, entirely prevent or terminate the activity.&quot;  Issues or events that would lead us to give up, stop, oppose, resist.... Please keep in mind these definitions and today's context (transition toward hybrid and online courses), as you consider the next two questions.
  11. 11. Follow-Up- Question 3: What are some obstacles that might delay progress toward what you hope to gain?  
  12. 12. Follow-Up- Question 4: What are your deal-breakers?    
  13. 13. And further...  Not for today... In the spirit of “ Frugal Innovations ” <ul><ul><li>What are some worthwhile improvements we can make quickly and easily?   [Small steps] </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can we share more widely improvements that work well enough?    How can we support collegial sharing? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can we ensure additional improvements after these?  And after those?  And so on...? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can we help more people take advantage more easily and more often of resources to which they are already entitled? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How can we reclothe the emperor?   e.g., not only expose new misleading claims about online education as panacea, but also offer practical guidance?   More... </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Next Steps? <ul><li>Based on what we have learned in this session and on your own experience... </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What are some small useful next steps in the right direction?  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Steps that you and your colleagues might take soon?  </li></ul></ul>Specific References, Specific Steps, Specific Requests
