This is follow up to my e-mail on Monday regarding the Sakai Teaching and 
Learning Call today.  We will be CHANGING THE TIME from our usual call to 
5 PM EDT (21:00 UCT, 2 PM local time in Los Angeles and 7 AM, Thursday, 
local time in Sydney, AU) so that those outside the US can more easily 
participate.  Dial-in information is below.  I do recognize that this time 
is not ideal for all and thus we will be talking on the call about how to 
best ensure that everyone can contribute regardless of their location.

I have posted a draft agenda to the Teaching and Learning Confluence site 
which can be accessed at: http://confluence.sakaiproject.org/display/PED 
If you scroll down you'll see a link under the "Agendas, Minutes, and 
Notes..." section to today's call.  Click on that link to see the agenda. 
Please feel free to add to it.

Based on the list traffic this week and numerous discussions at the 
conference, there are appear to be a fairly significant number of ideas 
and interests with regards to work the group might engage on.  This is 
awesome to see and very exciting given the efforts over the past few years 
to grow the teaching and learning "voice" within the community.  This 
said, my feeling is that it will be important for us to narrow down our 
focus to a few core "centers of gravity" that those involved are interest 
and passionate about and to then decide how we should engage around these 
centers.  Thus, I'd like to suggest (but others can counter) that we 
dedicate the next few calls to identifying core "centers of gravity" and 
processes for working on these over the coming academic year.

For this first call, my interest is to identify all of the issues and 
interest areas that have come out of the conference, who is interested in 
working on these and some of the next steps to move them forward.  Again, 
if others have additional suggestions for how we should use the time today 
please share them.

Thanks, Josh
