To Be or Not To Be Austin or Central Texas Centric
At our mission statement meeting last Friday, we discussed not having an Austin or Central Texas focus for the Council. I'm of two minds on this: yes, we don't want to be too narrow or exclusive vs. inclusive, But there's real value in creating something that has a sense of "home" and identity or local-ness to this e-learning initiative. Of course, we'll be globally available ... but I wonder if we'll have a stronger sense of connection/community building if we focus regionally, particularly if we're featuring local user groups and knowledge sharing of local e-learning experts. Maybe I just need another cup of tea.
