      >services by producing a preliminary version of a lesson, curriculum, or
      >educational unit by the end of the
      > meeting.
      > A second goal is to initiate partnerships to develop tools, services, and
      >collections to support the use of DLESE in specific disciplines. These
      >activities will result in usable DLESE
      > resources and provide valuable feedback to DLESE developers.
      > Ongoing interaction among the disciplinary groups following the meeting
      >will be supported by communication tools and web services available through
      >DLESE to foster continuing collaboration and resource development.

      >technology, and materials development to
      >discuss challenges unique to their interests.
      >Optional skills workshop: A skills workshop will be offered prior to the
