We intend to build on the what we have learned from TOL4B1 & TOL4B2 as
we work to build version #3 which will:
  • Engage very successful, experienced online teachers (e.g., panel of respondents to those who are just beginning…)
  • Help participants feel not afraid, guilty
  • Better prepared for moving forward teaching online
  • Not replacing offerings available from your own institution…
  • Offer/Encourage cohorts?

Below are some questions we are wrestling with:
  • Open to everyone?
  • Multiple paths?  
  • Roles?
  • Asynch resources accessible to everyone?

January 9th as we discuss the 3rd and final book in our series. FICTION: Sloan, Robin (2013)  Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore, Picador, New York, NY. (It's a novel, but it deals (colorfully and rivetingly) with the clash between so-called Old Knowledge (books) and New Knowledge (internet and other virtual forms of communication). Not only that, it's a great read--funny, swashbuckling, and serious by turns.)
