Is anyoneÂ interested in discussing how we could create aÂ directoryÂ ofÂ vettedÂ video procedures for O and P?
The primary goalÂ wouldÂ be to assemble and maintain a listing of vetted video information.There is some material Â already onÂ theÂ web thatÂ couldÂ be organized butÂ surprisingly little.Â A free, vetted directory forÂ material toÂ beÂ used in Â teaching,Â refreshing, orÂ getting further ideas thatÂ hasÂ been evaluatedÂ byÂ certifiedÂ peers couldÂ be helpful on many levels. It could be created by many sources (schools, individual practitioners, manufacturers,etc). ThisÂ couldÂ be developedÂ as aÂ section of oandp online or as a special interestÂ group of theÂ Academy or…? The goal is to makeÂ a particularly helpful asset for personal review, documentingÂ procedures,Â and teaching,Â especiallyÂ inÂ developingÂ countries. I don’t think we’ll makeÂ zillions except in personal and professionalÂ satisfactionÂ sinceÂ it would beÂ anÂ all-volunteer effort, but itÂ couldÂ beÂ beneficial in manyÂ ways and documentÂ howÂ some ofÂ the masters inÂ ourÂ fieldÂ as well asÂ innovatorsÂ do things.
As a means ofÂ starting theÂ discussion I haveÂ theseÂ suggestions:1.TheÂ basic idea is to create a freely accessible listing of online vetted video presentationsÂ listed in a directory thatÂ could includeÂ materialÂ already onlineÂ andÂ newÂ submissions.
2.AÂ volunteer group with professional standing wouldÂ doÂ theÂ vetting by majority vote.
3.No proprietaryÂ information wouldÂ beÂ disclosed andÂ accessÂ wouldÂ be freeÂ online (youtube, vimeo, etc).
4.Those makingÂ decisions toÂ includeÂ orÂ excludeÂ material inÂ theÂ directory wouldÂ beÂ volunteer professionals.
This is just a skeleton sketch thatÂ hopefullyÂ creates enough interest toÂ get thingsÂ rolling.
If there is enough interest weÂ could get together duringÂ the Academy meetingÂ in Chicago.If you are interested in pursuingÂ this pleaseÂ contact me directly: [email protected]
