In the past, we've always met in August for some professional development. I started several months ago to ask you for some ideas for a possible event this year, but response to date is pretty slim. So, let's work together to try a new approach.
Allan Gyorke (former Hazelton IDS) and I have created a Wiki document to plan an event for August. We've run this by several others, but really need your input to make it a great event. The Wiki doc is located at
Look for the Learning Design Summer Camp link on that page.
Just a reminder - March 7. 10 AM, Room 202K Rider II Univ. Pk. is our next All ID meeting. You can also join us via Adobe Connect at https://breeze.psu.edu/allids/ .
Carol McQuiggan will be talking about a faculty needs assessment she and Ann Taylor ran some time ago. This one's focused on pedagogy. I'd like us to discuss the possibility of revising this assessment so we can run it again with our faculty. It would have generic and campus/college specific questions, so we'd all have to pitch in on the survey revision.
I'm kicking around the idea of having a Fall 08 meeting for us. I'd like to have an entire day, and can probably swing a provided lunch and afternoon snack. In the past we've focused on specific tools, etc. as part of the training for the day. I'd like to get away from that and into more pedagogical discussions, community building activities, and joint projects we all benefit from.
