Guidelines/References for Frugal Innovation thru Small Group Collaboration

Working draft from TLTG Symposium   

These Guidelines & References are based on the work of the TLT Group's 4th Annual Online Symposium on Frugal Innovation and Collaborative Change:  YOU ARE NOT ALONE!   SMALL MIXED GROUP COLLABORATION  (August, 2011).  Registration was free to TLT Group members.  See the homebase Web pages for each of the 3 online sessions:  
Session 1     Session 2     Session 3
TLT Group Members are also invited to participate in a "small mixed collaborative group" to continue developing these resources in academic 2011-12!  
To join this working group, send email to Rebecca Kurtz:

The Symposium strongly influences the TLT Group's agenda for our weekly FridayLive! online sessions.  Our 2011-12 "season" begins on September 9, 2pm Eastern with a recap and extension of this summer's work on Small Mixed Collaborative Groups.  In the Symposium, guest presenters discussed specific kinds of successful small-group collaboration: 
  • Student-Faculty - Session 3, Elon University et al.
  • Faculty-Faculty - Sessions 1, 2, 3 - Temple University, Miami University of Oho, Elon University et al.
  • Faculty-Librarian - Sessions 2, 3 - Miami University of Ohio et al.
  • Faculty-Faculty Development, and Faculty-Tech. Participants - Sessions 1, 2, 3 - Temple University, Miami University of Oho, Elon University et al.
We welcome all in higher education - faculty, librarians, faculty developers, administrators, and students; but we especially encourage small groups of colleagues from the same institution. 

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.
