I still consider myself a newcomer to British Columbia, and an even newer member of the UCIPD network. As I understand it, the UCIPD members have been a loosely knit community for quite a while and many are looking for a way to create closer ties.
At SFU, our Learning and Instructional Development Centre (LIDC) is undergoing quite a few changes, and we would value input from other centres like ours. Rather than exchanging emails, we'd like to see all the discussion housed in one place, with resources and links all easily accessible.
I'd like to suggest that the UCIPD members consider using SCoPE as their "home" for a month or so, to see how useful and feasible it is. What do you think?
