The first meeting of professors of educational technology met the objectives of its organizers. A forum was created in which the issues which affect our lives as professors working in a dynamic and innovative field were discussed and debated. Participants took a break from the day-to-day activities at their respective institutions to think more globally about problems affecting the field, especially those which relate to the training of students. Action items were generated which will give direction to future activities for the group. Old friendships were renewed and new friendships begun. It is these personal linkages that will keep folks communicating and it will be this communication that will generate new ways to work together on productive tasks in the upcoming months. Not a bad outcome for a weekend in the woods.
