TITLE: The Quilt / InCommon Workshop Information
Want to hear how the future of K12 Federations is unfolding? Interested in how you can influence the direction? Come join us for a one-day workshop in La Jolla, following the Quilt Member meeting. The workshop will feature in-depth discussions with peers about next steps for federation at the Regional level, including best practices and potential new pilots.
At this free workshop, Quilt members will:
- Hear about the progress made by our eight federation pilots to extend InCommon Federation Services to K-12 (and potentially other CAIs) in collaboration with regional networks. Understand their challenges and successes and most importantly their lessons learned and the value proposition for K12 and other constituents.
- Discuss the new draft Regional/InCommon Federation Partnership Models whitepaper recently released. Participate in the shaping of these ideas, where they should go and what works best for your organization and constituents.
- Learn about the InCommon Corporate Affiliates, how they contributed to the Pilot Projects and what they may be able to do for you.
- Leave the workshop with an understanding of the next steps and how the work will continue beyond the February workshop.
