- Amy shared that she would have felt more comfortable with a template for what to do

- Committee members had not agreed on an exact end product for the project, so a template wasn’t possible.

- Member contributions to the shared document are mixed. Some members revised a lesson plan, others commented on experience


3. Discussion of format/venue for sharing our work, next steps

-       Possible options for publication were shared:

-       Fall EBSS newsletter

-       C&RL News article or The Way I See It article

-       Dan suggested The Way I See It article on broader ideas from the experience, sharing experience with re-mixing lesson plans, connecting this to the way it’s done among K-12 educators.

-       Lesley shared that MERLOT is a potential option for sharing our lesson plans – option to create bookmark collections with a unique URL that can be shared; Lesley also noted different academic communities within MERLOT; features of MERLOT include both a controlled vocabulary and options for tags

-       Lesley suggested a think-aloud process article

-       Dan agreed to be point person for project either informally or as incoming co-chair


4. Decided on the following as next steps:

- Samantha will follow up with current committee to encourage any individuals who want to post a lesson plan or resource that came out of their individual work to do so by June 30

- Any current committee members who are rotating off the committee and are interested in potential involvement in an article/write-up should let Samantha or Dan know

- Dan and Diane Fulkerson, as next year’s co-chairs, will discuss the write-up/article with the new committee, and decide how to proceed
