Funding was approved for the postgrad wiki in the CSAA exec meeting today. This is a good thing.
It is a very meagre amount, but it also comes with the CSAA’s institutionality, which is perhaps more important.
Another idea that was floated was a database of sessional teachers.Â I am very interested in setting this up…Â
I’d be interested in reading more about this as it comes along…
(btw, I’m having trouble reading some of the grey headers on your site on some monitors).
It might be an interesting topic to do a paper on at the conference in Canberra – postgraduate online networking?
In terms of the wikiÂ I just fired off an email that should hopefully result withÂ acquisition of the domain name and server space. let you know when it is \’live\’!
oh, and the postgrad networking thingÂ would be interesting. should I try to organise a panel? i probably could in my capacity as postgrad rep!!?!! or at least ask Paul if it would be possible. Â
although this is the sort of thing that would be really good for the wiki, a page on \’online networking\’ and the different ways of exchanging ideas and having stoushes and flame wars, etc. Actually, \’networking\’ will probably be a disambiguation page as there is \’corporeal networking\’ (whichÂ sounds very seedy), ie conference mixers, seminars,Â or whatever.
I think the sessional teaching labour database is probably overdue, this could run from a blog engine such as wordpress as it is easier top make searchable with the \’coding\’ function of tags. I haven\’t figured out if this is possible in the same way with the wiki engine.
