- Looking ahead to creating a hybrid liberal arts network for sharing the hybrid/online material and courses that we create: - What structures do faculty members at our schools need to have in place in order to share and receive credit for hybrid projects and courses? - How do we continue communicating across institutions, be it on an individual team level or sharing common best practices/worst practices, as we work throughout the year? - What needs do teams have for project management assistance? How can the consortium contribute and help? - How might we incentivize participating institutions to share unique expertise of instructional technologists for a project on another campus without adding to their workload?
