ISRs - working for new, inovative advancements in learning

The ISRs met in Fort Lauderdale on Tuesday July 28 and Wednesday July 29 to review progress of the on-line basic grievance training course and the revisions to the Leadership Resource Binder. We also participated in the C3 conference call and the Organizer's conference call.
Guy has completed approximately 3/4 of the design work for the powerpoint presentation that will form the basis of the on-line course. He and Stephani Lewis met in the spring to go over the basic outline. A decision still needs to be made which contractual case to use as a teaching scenario. Originally we discussed using the ValuJet Aircraft cleaning case but it may be too intricate for a basic on-line teaching scenario. We discussed adapting the Bob Badillo scenario we have used previously. It is fairly simple to understand. The other option is creating a brand new scenario. Darlene is working on some images that will used in the course. The major thing that needs to be accomplished is recording the audio for the course. We have a lead on a possible "voice" for the course.
Pending other duties and availability he hopes to finish the powerpoint course and finalize the script so that audio can be recorded following the Executive Board meeting the first week of September. A prototype should be ready to be shown to the legal department at their joint meeting in DC in September.
We reviewed the edits that have been completed to the leadership binder to date. Suzanne and Deb have gone through the entire binder and completed the majority of the re-writes. We reviewed those re-writes for content and made suggestions about additional changes that needed to be made. We also reviewed the CWA leadership binder for possible additions that would enhance our binder. We requested and have been promised an electronic copy of the CWA binder.
We envision a binder that would contain the material that does not need to be revised often accompanied by a CD containing forms and other written communications that can be adapted by the leadership and a "training" manual that would include handouts, quizes and other items that can change more frequently or might need to be removed, copied and used by the leaders.
Deb and Suzanne then divided the remaining work that needs to be accomplished. We will review progress on Tuesday afternoon September 1, following the Executive Board Meeting. We have coordinated meeting to finalize the edits and meet with Darlene and her group the week of October 5 to discuss layout and formatting. Our deadline for this project is to have it available for the first election cycle training in June of 2010.
