August 25, 2010 FACT2 Meeting Notes

Meeting called to order at 12:06 pm. Attended by: Judi Basinksi, Graham Glynn, Greg Ketchum, Craig Lending, Mark McBride, Joe Moreau, Nancy Motondo, Mary Jo Orzech, Lisa Raposo, Kim Scalzo, Lisa Stephens, Karen Volkman, Leanne Warshauer, Frank Yunker.

Agenda: Brief discussion of CIT Conference track descriptions that received some comment after initial listserv sharing. Joe Smith's retreat notes were circulated on Elluminate & the listserv for reference. CIT Keynote Update:

    * Our first keynote choice was not available within our budget.
    * Lisa will reach out to our second choice.

CIT Conference track title and description conversation.

    * Discussion began with making sure our tracks fit the FACT2 mission.
    * Discussion was around the Pedagogy Unplugged track. Early listserv reaction indicated concern that the title might be considered "anti-technology" in light of CIT history, can we soften the tone?
          o Craig and Graham agreed to take the discussion offline to refine the title.
    * The Council also recommended a title shift from "Managing Communication Overload" to Balancing on the Tightrope: Managing Technology Overload.
    * Discussion of remaining track content and number of tracks. Some thought of consolidation followed by consensus to keep as originally described.
    * The track descriptions need to be turned into Nancy Motondo by Sunday August 29th. Nancy will compile and provide to the Council for one last opportunity to comment prior to the September 1st deadline.

Next meeting:

Friday, September 17th from 1-3pm via conference call.

Agenda and connection details will be forthcoming via the listserv.
