III.  Specific Resources for Collegial Sharing

Think of 2 or 3 colleagues who might be receptive in the next few days or weeks...  

A.  Brainstorm, Discuss

What are some low-threshold ways of helping an individual faculty member to share a course improvement with two or three colleagues?  Better yet, some ways that can also encourage and enable those two or three beneficiaries each to share that improvement with two or three additional colleagues in the next few days or weeks?  And so on... Nanovation!

B.  Plan a Bookmark;  Prepare a “Mock-up”

Use the “notetaking bookmark.”  See:  http://bit.ly/TLTG-Bookmarks2009 Can also use notetaking bookmark to share info about this or other conference sessions.

IV.  Extra Credit: Programmatic Support

Discuss inter-institutional, institutional or programmatic resources to support more of the kind of specific sharing identified above.
