2 New Business

  1. Next White Paper: Training Repository & class development is it white paper or newsletter? An Experience with Learning Circles? Went through our topics for white papers page. 
  2. Pre-conference workshop – looks more formal than we were thinking with a registration fee of $35 to participants as well as hosting at $1500. Barry has an action item to look into what is being offered.

3 Information Sharing

  • Curriculum Repository Update

The Curriculum Repository tool has been getting a small amount of usage in Alpha testing (24 items currently available, with a collection awaiting review, but a small number of people actively using it).  Barry has submitted some classes from PRC, Denver Public Library, and RAILS group, and a PBDD white paper on refurbishing. Platform does not seem to have much momentum at this juncture. Queries outstanding on plans for roll-out.

  • Partner Status.
    • Visits- Barry & Katherine visited Ed Tech of WNY on October 27th. Partner profile has been sent to Renee for review and approved– – Will be included in December Newletter. (Not a November one.)
    • Planned trip to California- One scheduled with Human It, will try to visit Our Children LA, C2SDK
    • Sent queries to two organizations in Cleveland, one more in California
  • Website Updates- Updated information on Low cost access options
  • Peer-to-peer class — Barry & Katherine started the Mindfulness class. 7 people enrolled. Are using the peer-to-peer site. From a participant’s POV, all you can do is find a class, and sign up for emails. Can’t even find the class if it’s been closed. Might want to suggest a way for participants to communicate within the p2p system.
    • We had the first session before anyone was expected to take the class material. Good first meeting. With people willing to take ownership of how the class interactions unfolded as a group. Not one person in charge.
  • Other?
