After the Bulletin Board presentation during the Roundtable last week, you were asked who would be willing to serve on a Technology Task Force. A good number of hands went up, and this email is to remind those who are interested in working together on this to send me an email message to that effect. I will collect the names and addresses and circulate them back to all of you. I will probably set up a listserv to make it easy for the team to share ideas via email, and so that others can easily contact us.

The scope itself will be developed over time, but initially, it will include things like preparing documentation and resources, on the web, for setting up and using word processors, spreadsheets, presentation packages, as well as web authoring and various conferencing technologies. We need a spread of talent and experience to be sure we cover the various platforms and products.

So, please email me if you want to help us with technology in leadership.

David

David,

I would be interested in contributing and learning myself with regards to this technology idea, how much I can contribute is the question. How soon will you be organizing this and what do you foresee to be the work load? I perhaps will be making a move soon and that will tie up two to three months for me. Let me know if you have an idea on how you plan to work this and how soon, etc.

Really appreciated getting to know you over the past two weeks! Hope we have more opportunity to work together.

Hello Lon,

I see you are operating OK from MCI again. That's good.

You are the 3rd person to respond. As soon as I get another one or two, I will create the listserv and start the process. I need to be sure I have a spread of platforms and software products represented. I can write up anything to do with Microsoft and PCs, but I will need others to author materials for WordPerfect, Corel and Mac. Anything we put together, we would all have to try out and test or read for ourselves, so the workload is going to be mainly participating in email discussion, proof reading or working through workshop notes, etc. One of the things we should learn to do early is to hold an Internet meeting.

Many thanks for joining up. I know we are all going to learn a lot together doing this, and that we can bring benefit to the whole leadership community.

David,

I'm thrilled with the leadership you're taking in the area of technology. This has been needed badly.

As program manager I expect I would benefit greatly by learning and being involved in the technology advances.

Between being busy with other aspects of the program and lacking knowledge and experience in the web and internet aspects of technology, I feel rather behind.

I will be most happy to have your personal tutoring and to be involved however I can in the task force. If I have someone to explain and show me things, I can usually pick things up pretty fast. Maybe I should make an appointment to sit down with you and ask some questions (especially since I missed your bulletin board presentation last week).

Thanks. Let me know what I can do and how to proceed.

Hi Debi.

I would love for you to be involved in this task in any way you feel you have the time to spare. Even if we just use you as one of the 'guinea pigs' to try out new procedures on, that would be helpful. Of course, the objective of the task force is to bring everyone, staff, faculty, everyone involved in the program, up to speed.

With Orientation, Roundtable and classes for the past 2 weeks, the MIS Director's conference starting on Thursday, and 2 weeks vacation starting Thursday afternoon, I have wall to wall meetings Tuesday and Wednesday this week. I will be checking my email while I am away, but I agree we should get together as soon as possible when I return, say somewhere in the week of August 24 or later. One of the things I want to work with you on is an electronic database holding information similar to what has been extracted so painfully for the directory.

Looking forward to lots of interaction and growth.
David

Hi Mickey,

Thank you for owning up to waving your hand around. It will be great working with you on this. One of the difficulties I perceive some have had in getting collaboration to work for the whole group is that some in the program just don't get it. Apparently, extracting info for the Leadership directory has been a nightmare. But with a group of volunteers wanting to work together to promote the use of technology, I believe we will have a subset of people who *will* interact, make suggestions, try out suggestions and give feedback. Then we can post things we put together for the benefit of the whole group.

Hope you are all settled back in after the highs of the Leadership Orientation and Roundtable. I will include you as one of the members of this Task Force. I have enough names now to form a list, and get the work started. Thanks for being willing to be a part.

Dear David,

I'm not sure how many volunteers you got for the technology taskforce, but I am interested if my input would be helpful. I don't consider myself an expert by any means, but I do want to learn what I can. If you have enough already, I will be happy just to learn from all of you. A lot depends on how you are conceptualizing roles.

By the way, are you ever productive! I appreciate the work you are doing. I feel that it will enrich the program as well as our individual processes professionally. Thank you!

It was great getting to know you, just a little, and I would like to be able to do more together. I would value your presence on the Technology Task Force, to represent support for the Mac platform. I don't expect the workload to be heavy, and we can set our own pace and agenda. I have 6 or 7 other names, and with yours on the list, we could begin defining the scope and the types of things we want to accomplish.

Let me know if you would be able to help us with this, and please say yes!

There may be one or two others still on the way, but we easily have enough already to make a start. My suggestion on how to get started is to build a register of the commonly used tools, technologies and platforms, and those not used but that ought to be, so we can get a picture of the gaps that need to be filled, and also where there might be resources in the form of other participants who have mastered some aspect and could share their know-how. With this in mind, I have been working on an email to everyone involved with the program, as a survey of where we are now. After 2 days with Jim Tucker in Assessment and Learning, I realize that an effective approach here would be to phrase some questions relating to what it is we are trying to elucidate, and develop a methodology for obtaining answers to those questions. But it's late in the evening, so I want to send this out now, to start getting some ideas back from you.

So, before I send this out to everybody, I would like your input on the whole exercise.

  1. Is this an appropriate way to start, or is there another approach we should be taking? (Hey, how do you brainstorm via email? We *do* net to get Internet conferencing started.)
  2. If you agree that this is pretty much the way to get started, please give me your suggestions on the preamble, any alterations, etc.
  3. I would like some assistance in coming up with a better scale for determining proficiency.
  4. Are there tools or technologies I have left out that we should include?
  5. Have I asked for all the appropriate information under each entry?
  6. Any other ideas.

I am leaving for 2 1/2 weeks vacation on Thursday afternoon this week. I really want to get this out to all of Leadership before I leave, so if you have any suggestions, I need them by Wednesday.

And thanks again to all of you for agreeing to work together on this important and exciting project. The time is right.

David

Dear Leadership Participants and Faculty,

The Leadership Technology Task Force is planning to put together a set of workshops, guidelines and resources for using technology in the Leadership program. We are referring specifically to the technology we use as participants in the program, rather than our use of technology in the workplace, whatever that might be. So we expect this to focus on things like using the web for research, using our word processors for writing according to Andrews standards, using various Internet conferencing techniques, using the web for our personal home pages and pages for our regional groups, using our bulletin board and newsgroups, etc.

Since we all use a variety of tools, this is something we will need to work on together. I have experience with the Microsoft products only, on the PC platform, but to be truly useful, we need to develop materials for all of the products commonly used.

As a starting point, we need to know what platforms and products you use, your level of proficiency in those products, and what topics you think we ought to focus on in developing resource materials.

Please reply to this message, and in the following survey, place an X against the most appropriate response.

Use the following scale for proficiency.
0 : I have no experience
1 : I have limited experience, not used regularly
2 : I have moderate experience
3 : I am a regular, frequent user, I am familiar with all commonly used functions
4 : I am an expert user

Please do not ignore the comments section. At the very minimum, please write here the tools, techniques, workshops, tutorials, etc that you would like to see developed. If you have already developed some of these, for instance, tips on filtering and filing email, or styles for writing dissertations, please record that here also.

David,

I really appreciate your leadership in this. I like the initiative and the creativity involved.

As soon as practical, we should have a session at faculty meeting where you can give us further information on other ideas you have. This is exciting, and we are very fortunate to have you with us.

Would it not be a good idea to send David's message (below) to leadall as a reminder for others who may want to be a part of this group, or was intended to remain small? At the very least, there are individuals who I suspect would want to be on the task force who are not there yet, e.g., Henning G.

Hello Jim and Faculty,

I have sent a separate message to Henning prompting him to join the task force, and I sent him the following message as a "Blind Carbon Copy", so that if he is unable to join, it will appear to others that he was in the group and then pulled out. I very much hope that he does want to be a part of this.

I had intended sending the following message to leadall, but hope to get some feedback first filling in any pieces I may have overlooked. However, something like this to leadall could be effective in pulling in some more willing and able helpers. There are others whose work involves technology, like Marilyn Eggers. I think I'll do it, but without the long survey at the bottom.

David

Dear Leadership participants (that's all of us)

The message that follows was sent to those who have already joined the Task Force, including the draft of a survey we will be sending out to all of you. Since all of us have work pressures that ebb and flow, it is quite possible that not all of these people are going to be able to participate in every electronic discussion, so to ensure input spanning the range of technology interests that we have in Leadership, it would be great to see a few more offer their services.

I believe that you have a wonderful start regarding the survey. I believe that there is a definite need to unify software, or at the very least, identify ways for people to communicate files and such without too much hassle.

I would send your survey out as is. If we need to do a second round to get something that we missed I don't think that it would be a problem.

I hope that most people use the same programs. Let's see what we get.

Subject: Tech Task Force

Thanks David for getting the ball rolling on this project. I don't know the motivation for the others joining the group, but my motivation is to work on my technology competency. So while I cannot comment on your question about other tools or technologies you may have left out on the survey, I can suggest that you include a question for techno-novices such as "Are there things you would like to develop competence in for which you don't currently have access or knowledge?" Something like that. Also, you could include a question such as would participants use an IDP format it it was posted on the Andrews website and could be downloaded for use.
As far as your questions on the survey are concerned, I can't tell if you've included everything or not, but you've certainly allowed for "other" submissions of software. It seems to me that if we are going to develop resources for participants, this is the right way to start and email is the fastest and easiest way too. The thing is, many people will not answer the survey, and we should know why. Maybe you could include an answer alternative in which the participant could share with us that they are either done with their work, satisfied with their proficiency on their software, not interested in different formats or resources, etc. We should have some way of knowing who has responded and who as not, right?
I have no problem with your scale. In fact, I found it useful as I started filling out the survey for practice sake--it seemed that all of the items on the scale were appropriate. My ignorance level (big confession here) is that I have all this stuff on my computer and I use it, but darned if I know what it is or what version it is. I'll betcha I'm not alone either.
Hope my comments help, and I'll be looking forward to helping on this in whatever way I can.

Mickey
P.S. Have a nice vacation.

David and Team,

Your suggestions sound good to me. I have felt for a long time that more information would be valuable. In fact, I started a survey during my first leadership conference, but didn't find as much interest as there is now to pursue it. Also, I feel that this is a more helpful way to go - more solution focused with more experience and knowledge about technologies all around.

If we don't talk before then, have a great vacation! I, too, will be out of town August 10-Sept 1.

I am currently using the following software applications:

1. Frequently and fairly proficient:
Word processing: Wordperfect
Powerpoint
SPSS (statisitical program)
Inspiration
Citation 7 (End note) program for building bibliography and citing work
Netscape Communicator - email only at this point
Scanner/Power point applications

2. Less frequently:
Microsoft word, Presenatations, Manage Pro, Family Tree,

3. Would really like to build my skills in:
"virtual" meetings, and other software applications
interactive teaching technologies
learning how to incorporate video segments, etc.

Hope this is what you had in mind.

Hi Marilyn,

The Education server has a newsgroup server on it, at news.educ.andrews.edu. I have posted instructions on how to get Outlook Express connected to this server. This news reader handles the nesting of threads, but the server does not require authentication, so anyone who knows how to connect to this news group, read postings and write their own. I am also looking at how to set up an authenticated newsgroup, that requires username and password to login. I'll let you know what I find.

By the way Marilyn, you input would be extremely valuable on the Technology Task Force for the Leadership program. Would you consider joining this group?

Hi David,

I'm finally back in my office and back on my regular email. Just before the Leadership Roundtable Conference was over Jim told me that I had "muddied the waters" about what the forums should be used for and what the leadall listserv should be used for. I thought I was clear, but some folks thought I said things I didn't say!!!

Jim asked me to clear things up, so I told him I would post a message this week. I think your message below is pretty clear, but I will post my own so I can keep my promise to Jim.

I agree that we need a more sophisticated bulletin board program that has nesting for the posted messages. I also think that folks would be more comfortable if they knew that *only* Leadership folks could read the Leadership bulletin board. Having a user name and password to get into the forum should ultimately be a goal.

Peace,

P.S. I like your approach with the technology task force. It isn't overly ambitious, but should give you enough info to begin making some plans. I just finished taking an e-mail class on how to create webpages. It is quite a challenge for someone to write out instructions that can be easily followed by someone at home. This group (Educationtogo) did a really nice job.

If we end up doing anything like this, I recommend that those providing the instruction take on very small "lessons" because they could be quite time-consuming to write. On the other hand, brief e-mail workshops on some topics could be very useful, I think.

Good morning

I have enjoyed following the leadership mail. It's great. And invigorating.

The technology innovations and interest is also terrific. School of Education will support those initiatives! Could I ask, please, that you make sure communications about your intentions for design and/or implementation in our systems be coordinated with my office and our technology staff. That staff is in transition at the moment which will require even more careful communication.

I was glad to see an appointment on my calendar for today with you, David. I understand you may have been able to find a way that ITS can support our system. I'm looking forward to your ideas.

Technology in the School of Education is the forward edge. Thanks much for not only your use but your inventive use to put Andrews on that edge.

I got this message and do not know what ultranet bounced. The IEEE one is a forwarding one so the message really came through ultranet. Maybe it was a fluke. Ordinarily, we suggest the IEEE address. That way people don't have to learn a new one if we should change servers.

You asked about technologies. I'm hoping to learn alot by doing this. I would like to learn how to set up email conferencing or chat rooms so that groups could meet at the same time and carry on a discussion. The video would be a nice addition, but for people like me, it'll be awhile before I consider it a priority for purchase.

Dear members of the Leadership Technology Task Force

You must all be wondering if I have dropped of the face of the earth, or maybe just forgotten about what we set out to do with this task force. While I did spend a couple of weeks south of the equator, I suspect that the reason none of you has been asking about getting something started is that you are all madly busy, as I am.

But it is not forgotten. I have the data entry and analysis to do for about 50 responses from the Technology Survey. News readers were almost entirely unknown in the responses I looked at, so I think that developing some instructions for the various makes and versions of news readers would be a good initial project. I have posted instructions on doing this for people with Microsoft IE4 with Outlook Express or Outlook. The instructions are on the Leadership Bulletin Board. If you have a news reader already in use, add a news service called news.educ.andrews.edu, and subscribe to the Leadership Newsgroup. Let know if you try this and what success you have, what reader and version you do it with.

Another technology that we have to put high on our list is NetMeeting (or equivalent), following our great session with Jaclyn Kostner and King Arthur. Personal web pages is another topic that others have mentioned to me they would like to see covered. Do you have others that we should be giving a high priority to? A chat room has also been mentioned.

Hope to hear from you soon.

I'm sure that you are right about us all being super busy. I think that being incredibly busy is one of the prerequisites of being in the Leadership program!! <G> I'm also sure that no one has lost any sleep about not hearing from you, so don't worry. :-) Glad you had some time for adventure this summer!

I just set things up to test out the Leadership Newsgroup. I saw three files there on announcements, new users, and answers, but each time I tried to read them the following message came up.

News Error!
News host responded: No such group

By the way, I have had terrible computer problems this summer and have lost lots of email in various crashes, so I don't even have the Leadership Bulletin Board URL and can't participate there or find the Newsgroup directions. I do have, however, the printed out message with my UserName and password. Unfortunately, the Leadership Bulletin Board URL is not on the message.

Once you send me the URL, I'll try to participate more and will try again to use our mew Newsgroup.

I'm eager to try NetMeeting or equivalent. Something like this is really important, I think. I also think that we need a chat room. I'll share some ideas with the task force once I can get back in gear on the bulletin board.

Dear David,

Did you get a volunteer to help you with the preamble? If not, I might be able to work with you later next week on it. My strength however is in data analysis and getting SPSS set up for data entry and analysis. You may feel really comfortable with this as well, or have it cover some other way, if not, I might be of even more help to you in this area. Let me know. I will be in faculty workshop tomorrow, and on faculty retreat until late Wednesday evening.

Anyway, thank you for all your leadership in this arena.

Dear Task Force member,

Here is a useful suggestion that one of the respondents made. How about writing a glossary of technology terms, specific to the kinds of technologies of interest in this program? If any of you have such a glossary, or know the whereabouts of one, let me know. If any of you have definitions for any of the terms and technologies we are looking at, please share them also.

I am sure that as we work together on this, we will not only develop our own skills in some of the technologies, and in collaborating in the development these technologies in the leadership program, etc, but we will also be able to check off competencies.

Dear Task Force member,

In the excitement of the Roundtable Conference, and Dr. Kostner's strong endorsement for NetMeeting, the notion of a Leadership Technology Task Force was suggested. Volunteers were called for, and a considerable group of participants responded.

So, now that the dust has settled, we need to ask ourselves this question. What is it that we have all offered to do here? What is our mission? How does it fit in with the Leadership Program?

So, would each of you just take a minute (you make have to make one if there are none to take!) and jot down your thoughts on what you think our contribution might be in this program? Send your responses to the list so we can all see them, and we can try to put together some sort of mission statement for the Task Force. Then we can share that with everyone in Leadership and invite comment.

Then we can develop a list of objectives and specific tasks in keeping with our mission, and assign priorities. Some of this is very difficult to do via email, so maybe we should be our own first guinea pig and try to set up a Net Meeting to dialog on this. So let's hear some ideas.

I see the mission of the task force as:

1. Developing ways to use current technologies, such as NetMeeting and Chat Rooms, to increase and improve the amount of communication between the program participants, the faculty and other professionals who would contribute to our learning community.

2. To make this technological communication platform so user friendly that the learning curve is near 0.

Hello Task Force,

I don't have any profound thoughts to share at this moment but wanted you all to know that the LeadWest regional group is going to attempt to do a LearnLinc conference this Friday afternoon. We will be connecting with our host, Brian Hartman (director of 11th & 12th grade distributed education at Reno Junior Academy), Shirley Freed (Andrews), Linda Caviness (Glendale -southern California), Dan Kittle (Fresno, CA), Nancy Tucker (Pacific Union College), and the rest of our group at Monterey Bay Academy.

We are testing out the possibility of having many (or most) of our regional meetings meet virtually because our members are spread out over a huge area: from Arizona and all over California. It is difficult for us to travel for our regional meetings so we are looking for virtual alternatives. I'll let you know how it goes.

David, if you are available, you may want to join in with Shirley. If you are interested I'll get more details to you later.

Also, the LeadWest group is going to be developing our regional group web site or at least begin it this weekend. Each person will make their own page plus we will develop resources for our group and a forum for publishing to others as well. Again, I'll keep you informed.

I'll get back to you on thoughts for a mission, goals and objectives.

Cheers,

Hello Everyone:

I would say that the mission of the Leadership Technology Group is three fold.

1. Determine standards to assist with communication. For example, if you want to send an attachment to someone, or everyone, what format should it be in to insure that the person will read about it.

2. Find new and innovative ways to use technology to communicate. Marilyn's conference on Friday is a prime example of what I mean in this area.

3. Assist members of the Leadership community who may have a difficult time with technology. For example, I would be willing to answer specific technical questions (if I can).

I hope that this adds much to the discussion David starts.

At least, that could be one way to view the declarative or cognitive knowledge regarding technology. If you do not have a copy, Debi does. The paper suggests guidelines for developing sections of the IDP. Perhaps it can help provide a framework for investigation. You could probably provide musch of the basic info to the group. I'd really like to see what you come up with.

David, I've thought of more questions than suggestions.

It seems that one of the earliest assignments of the Task Force was to determine ways to direct messages as specifically as possible so everything did not have to go to leadall. Has that been accomplished? Do people know how to access the different places?

How detailed do you think glossaries need to be? Would general terms only be included?

I would like a discussion about what it means to be competent in various technologies. To use an old analogy, should we be able to drive a car (use applications) or do we need to be able to explain all that's under the hood and repair it (install and troubleshoot, maybe repair, hardware). I suspect the answer will vary because of individual needs, but it would mean that what is offered also must vary.

How feasible is it to instruct and troubleshoot via email? From my limited experience it seems that help almost always needs to be on site.

What results did you get from the survey? Perhaps that will suggest what people would like us to do.

Would we want to share tips we have learned, e.g., the "unwrap text" feature that allows one to more easily read some email messages?

I would be interested in participating in a Net Meeting. Any ideas of when?

[David] No real progress has been made here. Some have expressed the view that the request to use the Bulletin Board rather than leadall was thrust upon them autocratically. I thought that it was always considered an abuse of leadall to send jokes there. There is still a way to go on this, but the lesson I have learned so far is that it has to be done collaboratively.

How detailed do you think glossaries need to be? Would general terms only be included?
[David] I was thinking it would be fine in somewhat general terms, but to keep it to terms that are thought to be relevant to the needs for technology in the leadership program.

I would like a discussion about what it means to be competent in various technologies. To use an old analogy, should we be able to drive a car (use applications) or do we need to be able to explain all that's under the hood and repair it (install and troubleshoot, maybe repair, hardware). I suspect the answer will vary because of individual needs, but it would mean that what is offered also must vary.
[David] Good point. The proficiency scale we used in the survey was all in terms of experience in using the various technologies. Most participants are so busy that if something is broken or not working, they are going to call on support staff for help, and that is perfectly understandable. That is exactly what I do. My own proficiency in these technologies is as a user, and in some of them, I have 0 proficiency.

How feasible is it to instruct and troubleshoot via email? From my limited experience it seems that help almost lways needs to be on site.
[David] I think Chat or NetMeeting could offer real value here.

What results did you get from the survey? Perhaps that will suggest what people would like us to do.
[David] I have recorded nearly 30 responses in an Access database. I am sure that I ought investigate SPSS for this purpose. I will prepare some summarized totals from the survey and mail it out this weekend.

Would we want to share tips we have learned, e.g., the "unwrap text" feature that allows one to more easily read some email messages?
[David] Absolutely. I was hoping for some of that in comments from the Survey, but that instrument was probably too broad for that to happen. We need to put together a more focussed request for those kind of tips.

I would be interested in participating in a Net Meeting. Any ideas of when?
[David] Any idea of how? I'm sure it is not difficult, but I have not tried it yet. This Task Force would make excellent guinea pigs for learning how to do this.

Thanks again

Hello All,
I imagine that I am speaking for more than just myself when I say that I volunteered to be on this task force so that I could increase my competency in the technical areas; therefore, it has been more than a challenge for me to know how to respond to, for example, the survey and to speak to our mission with much competence. What I believe we are all about is supporting others in the program, like myself, who want very much to use whatever technology is available to us with some facility. I can master just about anything given the right kind and amount of instruction, but what if I don't know what's available? Therefore, I propose that in addition to Chad's fine and thoughtful comments, we set up some sort of a "template" of "best technology" practices, which would include the best bibliographic software to use, the best software for online meetings, etc. I am encouraged and excited by Marilyn's group's experience using NetMeeting and wonder if we shouldn't be figuring out a way to help everyone in the program get it set up on their computer. As a novice, it is helpful for me to have someone say, "Ok, first you get this computer that has these capabilities, then you buy and load this software, then you download these programs and this is how you do it..."

Best,
Mickey

Dear Task Force,

We have the bios that were collected for the Leadership directory, and it seems appropriate that we include some portion of this biographical material on the Leadership web page. There are two questions to answer before we can do this.

1. What information should go into the online bio on the Leadership web page?
Eg, name, email address, web address are already there. What about title and current employer? All of the information in the directory (now printed and being assembled)? Include a photograph?

2. Having chosen what we believe is appropriate to put on the web, we need to phrase a message to leadall asking for permission from each participant to use their information on the web. We may want separate yes/no questions for each item of information.

I await your suggestions.

Subject: A "Moderated" LeadAll

Hello Leadership WebCT Administrators,

I have not received any responses to my earlier message about technical assistance your regional group members may be needing for connecting to library databases, WebCT, looking up grades etc. One interpretation of this is that everyone has it working like a dream. Another is that some have not yet tried. Maybe another is that you have been too busy to chase this up yet.

Another item I had asked about, with very short notice, was for feedback on the Roundtable Web. 49 people have registered over the web so far, so I think I can assume that, after a hiccup or two, this is working well.

Now here is another proposal that I am seeking your input on.

You may have noticed that the LeadAll listserv gets quite busy at times and that what gets posted there is not always seen as vital to the program. This mattered less when the leadership group was relatively small, but it has now reached proportions where some action needs to be taken. Our Faculty have discussed this situation, and in the interests of protecting the time of all the busy people in the program, and maintaining the value of the list, they have agreed to make LeadAll a moderated list.

(I am listening for a "chose me, I will be moderator", but I hear only groans... WHO would want that job?)

I think the question of what is appropriate, right and proper for posting to LeadAll is one that would benefit from discussion by the whole group. And when that is decided, the list could be moderated to allow on to the list only those messages that meet the guidelines. The question is, what mechanism can we use to moderate the list?

The technology we use permits us to create a list of people authorized to post. The suggestion is for the list to contain the names of the leadership faculty and the WebCT administrators for the regional groups. The system would reject postings to the list from anyone else.

What do you think about this suggestion? Anyone in your group who wanted to post to LeadAll would email their message to you, and you would use you judgment to post it to LeadAll.

The WebCT LeadAll Bulletin Board would become the venue for sharing stories, portfolio tips, discussing topical issues, etc. The LeadAll listserv would be reserved for announcements from the Leadership office, maybe notification that a general discussion question had been posted on the bulletin board, maybe minutes from regional group meetings, etc.

Please get back to me with your thoughts on this.

Regards
David

David,

While this might be a little more cumbersome at first, I think we need to discipline ourselves and use the organizational tools that the Leadership Website and the technology afford us. It is the way we need to learn to do business. As with anything new, we have to learn how to control it and make it work for us. Unbridled listserves have been a great way for professionals with like interests to communicate, but I for one have unsubscribed to all except Leadall because I couldn't keep up! I think what you are suggesting is the way to organize and manage our internet communications effectively.

A hearty "YES" to the proposal for a moderated forum. While it has been sugested on numerous occasions that the leadall list be limited, it is clear that there are some who simply are unable to refrain from posting what they see to be vital communication.

I am one of those who am busy enough without needing to sort through messages that may or may not be important communication. The suggestion of working though the regional group administrators seems to be a workable one from my point of view.

I think we might need to culture the LeadAll listserv. But I wish we could avoid having "censors", I don't think I like the idea. If we can reduce the mails in LeadAll to necessary announcements/arguments and channel the rest to the bulletin board, wouldn't that be sufficient?

I have briefly looked at the LeadAll WebCt bulletin board. If we can learn to follow up the setup you have made there, it will be very good. Thank you, David!

I like the idea of a moderated leadall to create discussion. Celebration, minutes, stories, etc. are more staple of the forum format.

My vote - simplify my e-mail. Post only topics to leadall and refer dialogue to a forum thread for follow up.

As to the info you requested from me as a WebCT Admin. I have not chased down the info yet. My personal experience is that I can no longer access chat room logs in order to send them out to Leadwest. And I have not even attempted the task of entering the cyberspace door of the Library.

Dear David,
I am the administrator for the DC regional group. I have sent out several emails trying to get responses to your questions. Some have said they don't have time to answer your questions and others just will not reply back at all. I'll forward you these responses later in the week. I am assuming this email is confidential--I have had a very hard time trying to get this group to function as a group. I can't even get the group to commit on spending a few hours together while in MI.

I think your posting ideas are wonderful. First, I think this will force people to read messages on the WebPage. I could never get the DC group to
attend weekly chats. So it would be my hope that by having one person do the posting it would result in more communication among the members. I also have heard several students throughout the program indicate that they do not like the amount of mail they get. Your idea may also help with some of the stress that students indicate they have regarding Leadall.

Are we meeting with you while in MI or Dr. Freed?
