Agenda for AIS Standards Telecon on Thursday, 22 February at 10am Eastern

Hi... I am suggesting we use this time to discuss the discussion panels within the AIS workshop.

My thoughts were to have a couple of keynote presentations that include 30 minutes of presentation and 30 minutes of discussion each. My nomination for these talks are:
  • Standardization versus Innovation: Seeking Common Ground Robbie Robson
  • AIS Product Categories in 2020 – Avron Barr

My next proposal is to have paper sessions in four areas kicked off by a 30 minute moderated discussion... I thought we might be organized like this:

  • Opportunities for Learner and Team Modeling Standards
  • Opportunities for Pedagogical Modeling Standards
  • Opportunities for Domain Modeling Standards
  • Opportunities for Interface Modeling Standards

Again... these are suggestions and I look forward to hearing your opinion.

Information to join the conversation follows:

Avatar?id=10&size=24x24 Successful 1st telecon... we still need your help.

Added by Sottilare, Robert about 1 month ago

Thanks to all who participated in the first AIS study group telecon yesterday. I thought there were some very interesting ideas presented and I am asking for your continued help to review and comment on the forum posts for each of the proposals submitted. It will help the authors greatly if you log in and comment on their abstracts in the next few days. Also, if you are on the fence and haven't submitted an idea, you still have time to post your abstract on the forum site at instructionalsciences.org and present at the next telecon on the 25th of January.
