This is a series of things that need to be considered for changes in response to the revamping of AECT's electronic services.
One thing that emerged in discussions with people was there are no good ways to communicate with members. All members are not in divisions. Those who are, some are designated private - some not.
Members can opt-in to any division list.
Here are my thoughts on what should change:
A) There should be an automatic opt-in list that is moderated (Low traffic) coming from AECT headquarters. All AECT members should be signed up for this list. AECT presidents, other national leaders and appropriate people should be designated as moderators for this list.
B) A Similar listserv (moderated) for divisions should be established. This list would be moderated by division leadership. If you are in the particular division, you should be expected to be in this list. It would be automatically opt-in. A person joins a division, they are signed up for the list from the division as well.
C) A third listserv should be established. This is a free for all for each division. Member-member discussion should be encouraged on this list. This list can be encouraged, or ignored as individual members choose. People can opt-in to this list.
What do you think?
