Silent majority of innovators?
Notes to myself from the EduCAUSE Live presentation today: I wonder if I have a bunch of faculty who are using cool "Web 2.0" tools - Twitter, delicious, Skype, Posterous. I doubt it, but I'll need to ask around to find out. Accessibility? ADA? (And FERPA? Like Copyright, these are external impositions and faculty rarely have a motive to focus on them -- they're usually "just hindrances"...) Pragmatic or ethical issue with forcing students to register at 3rd-party sites? Site obsolescence? What if Click.TV goes under? (Which it did.) What's IT's responsibility if it breaks? Engage. Write. Collaborate. Define "newer" faculty. Age? Time teaching? http://ycedu255.blogspot.com referenced "added threaded discussions and gradebook" -- how? Modeling use of new technology in "ed tech" courses is very different from "operationalizing" them for other classes across the institution. Winona State "faculty technology mentor" concept -- give the early adopters a venue in which to engage.
