Colleagues,

 

We were fortunate this year to able to send 12 people to Educause, including 6 first-timers, and some of our younger staff. Everyone got energized, attended great sessions, met new people, came back full of ideas. We are going to hold a debriefing on Friday to share our experiences and how we can put some of what we learned into practice. But, yes, we are also back at work…and you know how the buzz and promise can dissipate quickly.

 

Do any of you have good practices to share on how we can convert all that new knowledge and enthusiasm into our ongoing work? This is a phenomenon not exclusive to Educause; it can happen anytime someone returns from a professional development activity, a visit to another campus, or whatever.

 

It’s clear we need a better mechanism for staff who have ideas to bring them forward in our organization. Thanks in advance for anything you can share.

 

And hey, it was great to see all of you in Philly!

 

Chris

I have been challenged recently to start using commercially available movies (DVD's) for some of our online classes. Obviously there are copyright concerns about using these types of offerings and streaming them for online classes. Other than the usual solutions: Students using Netflix, Hulu, Blockbuster, Public Library, etc. has anyone creatively solved this issue so they can stream DVD's for online courses? ___________________________________ Charles Keeler Mitchell College Office of Information Technology Chief Technology Officer (860) 701-5254 IMPORTANT WARNING: The information in this message (and the documents attached to it, if any) is confidential and may be legally privileged.

Hi Sam, I am not exactly sure if you are asking how do you find the slides for E11 presentations? or how do you post your slides for your presentation? So I will answer both questions. All sessions that currently have resources posted can be found here, http://www.educause.edu/Resources/Browse/EDU11/41762 Session resources are getting posted every day. If you were a presenter and want information about how to post your material, please see this detailed explanation. http://www.educause.edu/blog/EDUCAUSE+Speaker+Concierge/Uploadingyourpre... Please let me know if you have any questions, thank you.

The question is: How we can find all the slides for al the presentations? I attended a few of the presentations and found the information very useful. Thanks for the link. It would be nice if we can go straight from the E11 schedule to the specific presentation.

Sam, You can see whatever resources are uploaded for a particular session from that session's page. If you go to the schedule and click on any session, you'll see a the session description and several tabs. One of the tabs is "Resources". If you click on that, you'll see slides and other resources uploaded by the presenter(s).

Chris,

We sent six just from my Center, and are having an informal brown bag lunch session on Friday (open to all staff.)  Those who attended EDUCAUSE will talk about just one thing they learned that will make a difference in their work , and why.  This kind of thing usually generates a good bit of discussion.  Just one fairly easy way to spread the word and share with those who weren't there.

A few more ideas:
  • Attendees write and publish a one-week-out (or one-month-out) short reflection — by blog post.  
  • Develop set of conference links to pertinent project resources to share with a given project team — this gives those who weren't there access to latest thinking/new ideas, or may validate what they are doing already, and the attendees is getting broader dissemination for what he/she learned
  • People who join constituent groups as a result of attending the conference can be encouraged to share those with others on campus to broaden engagement in the profession
  • Use attending the conference as an opportunity to kick of a process of viewing webinars together (like EDUCAUSE Live) and having follow-up discussion.  These are always current topics.
  • While it is fresh in their minds, have those who attended offer some advice for getting the most from the conference — then record their input and have next year's group review it before they go.
I think the important thing is to keep the momentum going, even in small ways.  Always a challenge.

Cynthia,

You have some great ideas below and I agree, if you can at least keep some momentum going, you've gained something useful from the conference.

Chris,

This was my 1st year at Educause (I only started with Ithaca College 4 months ago), so I can relate to your 1st timers.  While this conference is new to me, I have been to many others in many fields over the years.  It is easy to get lost in all of the new information and then really lose focus quickly when you get back to the "real world".  For myself, I try to concentrate on a few key items in a few key areas:

1.       Major Themes – What two or three major themes were raised by the key note speakers, the CEO of Educause or in multiple sessions.

2.       Take Aways – What did I learn about that I really feel will benefit our organization and has a high probability of being implemented when I return?  If I can do this with two or three items, I consider the conference a success.

3.       Questions – What topics raised significant questions for me that I feel are worth discussing with my team and/or a bigger audience.  Again, I try to limit it to two or three items.


So, in the end, I am very happy if I have a limited number of items I can really focus on, instead of trying to wrap my hands around all of the topics and information presented.  All of the information is valuable, but with time constraints and pressure, I just find I actually make some progress if I only focus on a few items.  Once I have these identified, then it's really a question of the topic and who should be involved as to how I proceed/communicate.

Best Regards,
