The ITANA Spring 2009 Face2Face has been canceled as you all know. Instead, we will hold a series of webinars using Internet2's Adobe Connect and our phone bridge. Each of these Webinar/Working sessions will be 90 minutes long. There will be an opening Webinar presentation with discussion followed by a working session.
I hope that we can use these sessions to bring the Face2Face content to the members. I also hope that we will be able to still have the dynamic conversations and discussions that we have had at our Face2Face meetings.
I believe that we will develop a model for making these Webinars/Working Sessions productive and useful. I also believe that this model of collaboration will be an opportunity for each of you to present to your peers and get feedback from the group.
You can see what is planned on for the first Webinar and Working Session on the Conference Calls page.

Agenda under Conference Calls
ITANA is actively working on three topics that were identified as key areas in the Face2Face 2008 meeting. These areas: Data Management, Architecture Implementation Case Studies and Selling Points for Architecture are outlined below. If you are interested in participating, please join the EDUCAUSE ITANA Constituent Group and participate in the Conference Calls.
With collaborative research taking place everywhere how do we classify the research data, protect it while the research is going on and then enable everyone to see after the research is published? How do we collaborate with the libraries on this one? How do we arrive at data management policies that cut across the whole institution? What are some of the examples of institutions doing it successfully today?
Descriptions of ongoing Enterprise Architecture programs in your university. How, Who, What, and any impacts the program has had/is having on your IT environment. Descriptions of specific projects that have been significantly impacted (positively) by the Enterprise Architecture program.
How do you describe Enterprise Architecture/I.T. Architecture and/or other architecture practices to leadership on your campus? What does your leadership find valuable in having an architecture group? Do you gather metrics? How could you show ROI for practicing architecture?
