Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Welcome! Take a look at the draft Call for Proposals for the TLT Group's online events 2012-2013: http://tlt.gs/slvrcldCFP
Lou Zweier:yes, but you are kind of loud and distorted
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Loud and clear!
Lou Zweier:no about the same
Lou Zweier:yes, a little better
Maida Tilchen:Sure I can hear thanks.
Maida Tilchen:I'm getting echoes on every word
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:Maida are you logged in twice
Eric Werth:no echos
Maida Tilchen:yes that's probably it
Lou Zweier:you sound fine
Maida Tilchen:ok now sorry
Lou Zweier:yes it does
Lou Zweier:I've found that very useful too
John Munro:no mike sorry
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:Virgin Islands!
John Munro:yes, we don't usually wine, we rum.... :-)
Lou Zweier:Just FYI - I will need to leave the session today at 11:50
John Munro:make a module of earlybird "session" for asynch access/info
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:good idea John
Eric Werth:I really like the afterthoughts segment.
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:thanks
Lou Zweier:meant for many years
John Munro:it's been continually refining... what doesn't work, doesn't survive/continue
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:they also tend to depart quickly when its memorial day weekend!
John Munro:maybe a beforethoughs session (separate day? but not too far before)
Maida Tilchen:I thought the Enders Game ones were the most engaging for me.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Rotate day of week for them sessions. Anything but Mondays might help.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:I agree, every session is not right for every one every time
John Munro:agree re: Mondays, but FriLive is nice to count on.
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Lou - help people enter with well-matched expectations for session
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:We would really truly welcome recommendations for sessions and presenters. Yourself included.
Lou Zweier:very useful tidbits
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:GAIN: more volunteers
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Keeping up with technology relataed to teaching and learning.
John Munro:perspectives and ideas from valued/vetted virtual colleagues
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Best practices; new resources, liked ender's game too; tips on engaging the seasoned online educator, new & evolving technology
Eric Werth:I like the low threshold applications portion. I would like more of these as they are great tidbits to look into.
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Learning about best practices related to technology and teaching.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Case study
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:There's an app for that session,.
Lou Zweier:I don't have anything specific here
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Use of iPad or similar devices in teaching.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Design, implementation
Eric Werth:I would also like more about how different technologies can be integrated into traditional classes to improve student engagement and learning.
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Connectrions with friends.
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:CHERISH: friendly open approach
Maida Tilchen:You're very welcomnig.
Alicemac:The 'Live' part!
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Hearing your voice each week.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:You have great guest speakers
Lou Zweier:Interactions among participants
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Listening to your ideas related to teaching and learning.
John Munro:'tone' - gentle, welcoming, considerate and considering
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:CHERISH: variety of topics/presenters
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:You are our resident guru.
John Munro:somehow it's harder to 'listen' when talking vs reading when typing
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:I like the mic option.
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:One issue is related to the echo feedback that often occurs when others speak.
Eric Werth:I always have a mic on but normally it is faster for me to just type in the chat windo.
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Some individuals have better mics than others.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Not me, I rather speak!
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:Typing doesn't have to be "called on"
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Lou - confirms our experience with infrequency of partricipants using mics
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Mics on laptops do not work well for voice for sessions like this.
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Lou - need better mechanisms for queing for taking turns
John Munro:typing seems less intrusive, but still allows statements to be made
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:I use my tablet with headset pretty often, works great!
Eric Werth:Also, as a Presenter now I can turn on my mic as needed but if I were just a particopant I would have to ask and wait for permissions to be granted.
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Sally suggested something like additional roles - designated vocalizers; model participnats
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:The voice converesation is different from a telephone conveersation.
Alicemac:two things: I need to think through what I gave ti say and the time is short, and secondly, it is being recorded.
Lou Zweier:I think so too
Lou Zweier:another advantage of chat is that everyone can speak at once. So a lot more can get said in some ways.
John Munro:parallel multitasking
Lou Zweier:I can see that. But I can type so much less than I can type in the same amount of time.
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:The headset that Steve mentions is excellent..
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:Headset Logitech USB H530 http://amzn.to/Q4y4a5 (Order this way and we get a little cut.)
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:The "APP" session.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Yes, the app session was great!
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:The copyright series
Lou Zweier:I might be able to do that.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Yes, I would be interested too
John Munro:maybe a topic-based blog structure?
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:We should have someone on the lookout for the latest apps that are available related to teaching and learning and share these.
Eric Werth:Do you use the same Connect meeting room for each session? If so maybe we could have a persistent chat window where we could write ideas that we have found useful.
John Munro:is there a recording of audio -- often implies in text
Lou Zweier:great question
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Community of inquiry series might be of value. Lots of chatter at the colleges where I do adjunct work
Eric Werth:I liked the session on hybrid courses and would like to see more on this!
Lou Zweier:those all sound very good.
Maida Tilchen:open education resources
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Use of tablets to support teaching and learning.
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Digital textbooks.
Maida Tilchen:I'm very glad you will have the MOOC workshop.
John Munro:BYOD classrooms/students
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:COI : socila presence, cognitive presence, teaching presence,
Lou Zweier:project-based learning
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:social
Eric Werth:Maybe use of all of the Google apps that are available?
Maida Tilchen:A big issue for our faculty is upgrades such as for the LMS that originate with the vendor. No one wants to relearn.
John Munro:more than 60% of my students have/bring smartphones/tablets to class -- take photos of chalkboard, access google docs etc
Lou Zweier:yes, as opposed to the institution haveing to provide devices
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:RELEARNING
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Technology resources used in assessment of students.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:I just signed-up for a MOOC through Google: Power Searching at Google Starts on 9/24
Kyle Songer:People have a tough time making the transition from designing learning the way they were taught (rote memorization ) to designing active learning.
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:I'd like to have Steven Bell back to talk about ways he uses to "keep up." He's an engaging speaker.
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:It would be good to have Phil Long back some time.
Lou Zweier:No, nothing more. It's been a good session
John Munro:after a case/courseactivity etc is presented, get responses from students who used it
Lou Zweier:Thanks All. Bye

John Munro:good idea
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:yes
George Guba:Good idea
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:It would help for planning
Eric Werth:I think that it is a good idea too.
John Munro:although 'spontaneous' sessions happen too
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Have you ever done this before? If yes, was it successful.
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:proposals for fridaylive or workshops? or both?
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:If not done before I think it is worth doing. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:It would be a nice avenue for folks who did not get into conferences but have great things to offer
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:good thopught
John Munro:google forms help focus and reduce 'overhead'
Nancy Calsolaro Smulsky:Distribute through member schools
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:would any of you be willing to help read?
Kyle Songer:I like the Google form idea
Charles Ansorge, University of Nebraska, Lincoln:Any way to provide an incentive? Not money but something else to encourage contribution.
John Munro:just got called for town trip sorry -- thanks for thoughtful session today!
John Munro:bye all
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:CU soon John!
Sally Gilbert, TLT Group:We're in extermission
Maida Tilchen:I am signed up for four MOOC courses this fall. I don't know if I'll do all of them all the way, but I would like to compare experiences with others on Friday Live, and hope that will happen. Im taking them in part for the experience, not just the content.

Eric Werth:I would like hints, suggestions, etc. for working with faculty who are resistent to integrating technology into their teaching.
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Kyle - you sound very good
Eric Werth:Another interesting topic might be how an instruction in a larger online course could still interact with students.
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Kyle: Finds faculty who are trying to teach online are prone to not use more interaction, active learning, .... HOW MAKE THAT TRANSITION?
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Kyle - online physics session using simulations.... [remote labs too?] Enders Game
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Nancy: Lots of courses where mostly first-time teaching online and lots of students who are close to beginning in college and close to beginning courses
Steve Gilbert, TLT Group:Nancy - asked student )(online) attitudes about interacting with instructors - esp. FEAR of interacting with instructors ... FEAR OF PROMINENT RECORD
