Task Registries Activity:
This is a joint activity with the IEEE Learning Technology Standards Committee’s (http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/ltsc/index.html) Task Model for Project-based Learning (TMPL) Working Group (http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/1484/21/index.html), which is developing a standard to enable many Task Registries (with consistent fields) to be created for different market niches. This will enable students or workers to do federated searches across any number of them, and enable them to use a standard user profile to perform better searches.
This TCLT Task Registries Activity is exploring standing up a free and open source Task Registry, or helping other organizations do so. For example, IEEE Standards Association has expressed an interest in working with us to set up a Task Registry to help IEEE student members find task-based assignments that could lead to longer-term internships, or to help IEEE working members find task-based assignments to broaden their experience and possibly lead to new employment.
