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.
I just returned from a really great conference focused on teaching in higher-ed: The Teaching Professor Conference. If you are looking for professional development that focuses on teaching (not so much technology), then this is one I highly recommend.

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.
