Return of the Summer Academic Working Group

I'm happy to announce the 2007 Summer Academic Working Group. This peer accountability and feedback system allows users from anywhere in the world to share documents and feedback. Working group participants participate in "clusters" around a common discipline, theme, or type of work. Clusters exchange work on a regular basis - normally every two weeks - by posting it to a secure course and project management site at the University of Michigan. Participants then provide and receive feedback for members of their cluster. Having a deadline helps everyone get more done, and having feedback makes what's done better.

For more information, or for sign-up instructions, go to http://www-personal.umich.edu/~lpowner/workgroup.html

Any questions can be posted to here as a comment to share with everyone, or emailed via the webpage.

Last year something like 20 people participated. The feedback was GREAT, and my cluster actually met up for lunch at a professional conference. It's a really nice opportunity to get feedback from people you don't already hear from regularly or who might bring very different perspectives to your work.
