Aug 3 Small Collegial Collaborative Groups Help Transitions

Textbooks to Online Info; F2F to Hybrid; LMS to Web Tools; etc.  
We believe that focusing on small, realistic steps will lead to more widespread, long-lasting meaningful changes. In fact, in these especially challenging times, small steps may be the ONLY way to keep moving  - in the right direction.

Join us  Aug 3, 9, 11 1-2PM EDT for the TLT Group's 4th Annual Online Symposium on Frugal Innovation and Collaborative Change 
Queries & Strategies for Frugal Innovation, Collaborative Change via Small Group Collaboration
Free registration for TLT Group Members; Fee for non-members.

  • We'll examine specific kinds of small group collaboration already successful at some institutions: Student-Faculty, Faculty-Faculty, Faculty-Librarian, Faculty-Faculty Development, Faculty-Tech...
  • We'll discuss how to develop and apply each of these to current major challenges: moving from textbooks to online options; moving from entirely F2F classes to hybrid or online; moving from institution-wide LMS to multiple web-based tools... how to keep moving forward in the midst of churning...
  • Guest presenters will describe/demonstrate specific kinds of successful small-group collaboration.
  • Participants will be encouraged to ask questions and suggest alternatives and improvements.   We hope that each of you will learn both from the invited presenters and from each other.  
  • These sessions will shape the TLT Group's agenda for our weekly FridayLive! online sessions in 2011-12 (beginning Sept. 9, 2pm Eastern) and other projects. 
  • We welcome all in higher education - faculty, librarians, faculty developers, administrators, but we especially encourage small groups of colleagues from the same institution.

Join us!  Register now.
