Iteration One

“Let’s not drop the baton- we are the legacy, managing, maintaining and making accessible the life and work in a way that conveys the holistic quality and embodies a learning experience which is itself an entrée into the learning [access] of others”

Iteration Two

Insight into and respect of this philosophy will guide the way we organize and relate the various materials in a way that increases and maintains their accessibility. Where possible, we will use Stafford’s own approach to learning to design the learning context and inform the organization of the classification used.

The next session will focus on how this process can be initiated with immediate effect, with reference to specific materials and their guardians, identifying specific means for the removal of any barriers to achieving our goals

Making Sense and Understanding Why

Action Plan

The White team will draft and publish via the Staffordian Syntegration Website a letter to be broadcast via the infoset into the larger community (we request the active collaboration of all members in this endeavour). Harry Beer will lead the project.

The letter will be drafted to enable us to compile a comprehensive inventory/record of all existing materials. Its structure will let us identify Who, Where, What, When and How we might access said materials, helping us decide what we might best do with them. It will also be drafted in a way that allows us to categorize the materials in a logical but also rich historical and contextual framework.

We have begun to establish the structure, methodology and tone of the initial letter. The letter itself will be completed by July 15, 2003.
