1. Actions from last meeting
DL checked the EARLI SIG application process. The question is whether HEA and EARLI have regulations against co-funding of SIGs.
2.1 Edinburgh event
DL Successful presentation and discussions and overall very positive feedback after the Edinburgh event. One issue with the Edinburgh event was that the people were cancelling at the last minute. Whether to include fees for the events? CH events should be free as it might be difficult for people to come to these events. BN we might arrange that people should cancel by a certain data and if they cancel afterwards we could charge them.
AL Scoping study exploring the current approaches to sustainability of e-learning. The study will be sent out to ‘critical friends’ to gather feedback. Karen Stepanyan (lead researcher on SELScope) will attend the SSELF London event in September to present the study. AM we could make the draft of the scoping study available on the SSeLF platform and ask for members’ feedback. BN We could disseminate it in two phases, one as a draft and one as the final stage and thinking of SSeLF community as another ‘critical friend’.
3. CH we could use Elluminate to increase attendance. A person is needed to facilitate the Elluminate. In ELESIG for example 40 people participated in face-to-face event, with 40 people participating online. AL we might organise an Elluminate session for George Siemens’s talk at SSELF December event.
AL we should discuss activities in between face-to-face sessions. DL- Helen Whitehead suggested that the work in sub-groups was productive. CH they also involved people in developing resources.BN- QAQE members were sent a draft version of the T-Kit for comments.
CH What was important in ELESIG was the members’ corner: they get 10 minutes to say what they do. It is also important to produce resources, videos, things that would be useful for the community and make them come back to the online platform. It creates a culture of expectations that there will be something new to look and that you contribution is wanted. CH we could move the Steering Committee work from the wiki onto the Ning platform. Publish meeting minutes there.
