July 20, 2009 Meeting
Just checking in to the first meeting. I have used a similar team charter with my doctoral cohorts at the UOP so I know the charter works well. I am not sure what I am expected to do beyond this.

I think I need to be more patient. Too many moving parts, and I'm not sure of the goal as yet. That's the nature of collaboration I suppose:).dmccabe 03:03, 21 July 2009 (UTC)
Actually, I think you asked exactly the right question (from the main page): "what are we attempting to achieve?" Maybe the charter doesn't effectively specify *what* is to be created. As I said on the main page, it's a chicken and egg problem, but if you are not sure what the goal is, then maybe we need to be more clear. In my opinion, the charter should communicate a shared vision for process and outcomes.

I'm a short timer approaching vacation. I'll have to place some other priorities ahead of this at least until I return, so I was probably a little less patient than would be typical. I tend to be more goal than process oriented, so the early phase of the project is a poor match for my personality. Luckily Anil has a good handle on the process. I'll weigh in once more in a couple of weeks,

The group has benefited a lot out of the thought process you have triggered. While wishing you a great vacation, the group will await your invaluable contributions to our main task that will commence soon at http://www.wikieducator.org/WikiEducator:Administrators.
