FLOW Recommendations Press Release: http://californiacommunitycolleges.cccco.edu/Portals/0/DocDownloads/PressReleases/NOV2017/PR-FLOW-11-13-17-FINAL.pdfFLOW Public Comment:: http://doingwhatmatters.cccco.edu/ForCollegeLeadership/FlexLearningOptionsforWorkers.aspx
Has DECO decided about running a meeting on the Tuesday afternoon before DET/CHE starts?
It's too bad the FLOW public comment form requires an "organization." It would be great if ordinary citizens could feel like their comments are valued.
How do we enforce bullet number 2
@Jim - please reach out to Jodie. I'm not sure where she landed.
@Gregory - - The website says: Share Your FeedbackWhether you're a prospective, current, or former student; a parent; business leader; stakeholder; or community member, your input is valuable to our process. Click here to share your feedback with the project coordinators.
Ok Lisa thanks
It opens an email.
Thanks @Kate. I'm talking about the Google Form. The "Organization" field is a required field on the form.
@ONE on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/atonefortraining
@Gregory - could we suggest an "NA" be added to the options?
We have a proposal for the Rubric ready to submit.
I submitted a proposal on OER.
It was on the OER course shells
@Lisa it's an open-ended field so anything can be typed. I think all that's needed is for that question not to be required.
@Gregory - Couldn't you just type NA?
Yes n/a could be typed. Or "citizen"
sounds like that should work
That could be a sound feedback loop if microphone is picking up speaker
??Barbara does that mean that OEI is part of the criteria to be used for the next cohort?
I mean OER
Sorry I see that now
Does this mean some of the resources mentioned here will be exclusively available to the new cohort? Or will they be open to all Consortium members?
@gregory —- oh, no. I was referring to the graphic Jory showed about the OEI ecosystem. We need to add an OER branch now that we have it up.
Or Jim, were you referring to the OEI Ecosystem slide?
No Bob, the new stuff for the new cohort.
Thanks, Jory & Kate. Definitely we are interested in much of that so hopefully we’ll have opportunities to incorporate some of those new “pilot interventions” :-)
??Will the letter of interest include some estimate of the amount of work required by applicant college so that we can assess our own readiness before expressing interest?
@Jim - absolutely! We will scale these where we can initially.
Is there a number of colleges you will be accepting?
Thanks Kate and Jory
/does “fall participation by Fall 2018” mean acceptance or starting to offer courses on exchange?
Suggest a process for current Exchange participants to be brought into “equity” with the new consortium group?
It might be helpful for current consortium DEs to write a little "what to expect" list/memo so potential DECs could have a better understanding of what the workload will look like
Great idea @Lisa! Also, I hear you @Dan.
Excellent idea @Lisa
Cranium Cafe and Net Tutor--are they compliant yet?
we’re selling our secrets for a mere $5 contribution... :-)
@Kate - I'd love to see that list. I think it would be helpful before throwing hat into the ring
Sharing deployment checklist ASAP is a great idea. Will help with self-assessment and our local knowledge will help us decide whether our colleges are even ready to express interest
@Dan- cheap at the price ;-)
Just to recap - In order to particpate in the Exchange your college must first be accepted in the membership of the consortium? Colleges not in the consortium will not be able to particpate in the exhcange in 2018?
Yes! Our college keeps asking ‘what’s involved in terms of time?’ so that checklist would be awesome!
Lisa Sayles - CRedwoods
The checklist would be a helpful tool to have now, during the decision-making process.
Even scary is okay
We're adults here
Yes - we need to know the real scoop. If it's scary, we need to know that
Should have released the checklist at Halloween… :)
Will there be a later chance to join if we don't make the deadline?
Can the 'common' business practices be summarized? Good to know for the readiness assessment ...
How do you become a member of the consortium?
Thanks for that. And we have to apply for that with only a certain amount of colleges accepted.
How long will it take to get checklinstpacket after Dec 15 deadline so we can plan?
That’s excellent. Our college also asks what’s in the agreement. So a draft of that would be wonderful during the decision-making. Excellent!
But you don’t get “double your money back!” as in the commercial!
Of course, though, “but wait, there’s more!”
who do we send the letter of interest to
The announcement & letter of interest (to return) will be sent out via all the major listservs on Monday. You’ll get it via the DE-ALL listserv. It will have the contact and return information on it.

Thank you all and Happy Holidays.
