Please could the facilitators hold at least one meeting of their group before the end of the semester (electronic or face-to-face), and then report back to the whole team at the beginning of the semester. Could you also, as Karen suggested, post the date, time and place of your meetings on this web page (send details to email@example.com) so that others may attend if they would like to do so?
Please don't hesitate to add yourselves to groups if you were omitted. Please contact the facilitators if you wish to be added to a group.

Agenda: I would like to collect your thoughts regarding how faculty rewards should be given for those involved in creating and running cyber-classes. Please email me any ideas, intuitions, gut-reactions, despairs, hopes, or needs regarding this issue and I will collect them all to present at our meeting. Getting your impressions beforehand should streamline the process.
