[....] If you are still interested, let's try the following:
1. Please connect the following pages to your update page:
2. Please download the latter one [...ret.html] http://faculty.washington.edu/krumme/faculty/ret.html into your own system, and connect the (your) URL to your page system. Use this page for the documentation of your work and your suggestions.
3. Read the "mission statement" [= "About this Project"] and all of the other writing carefully and try to understand, as well as possible, what I have in mind and then ask questions!
4. Try to place yourself into the position of an undergraduate student who would actually "adopt a retired professor" and design an outline for a "plan of action" for making these student - retired faculty sessions as useful and exciting as possible.
5. Clearly, there is a lot of work to be done,(these tasks would include,
(a)(yes!) finding web pages of projects which are similar or could be useful to this one.
(b) writing guides (e.g. taking mine and improving them for seniors)
(c) developing templates
(d) writing instructions for students who are working with retired faculty etc.
You cannot possibly do it all of these tasks. Please make some suggestions as to what you would find interesting, useful and educational for you and then try it out.
All along, feel free to ask questions, or ask for my comments to your suggestions... Only this dialogue will lead to something, since I have NOT worked out everything in detail. If I would have done so, I would not need you anymore.
[Earlier statement:] I suggest that we do the following: Since the ultimate objective is to create substantive Web pages with/for/by retired/retiring faculty, we may want to start working on a "model", or template for such pages, i.e. generate ideas as to what kind of information and wisdom could potentially be incorporated into a retired faculty page. To get things started, I have put together some URLs I found, plus the page I created for our Professor Morrill... There are lots of ideas here, but I am sure there are lots more out there... Maybe we should start with articulating the objectives a bit more clearly ...
This project has a couple of loosely defined objectives at this
(a) plan to create a "Service Learning" program for Geography 207 in which undergraduates will be matched with retired or retiring faculty, to create a mutually beneficial learning environment centered around computer use, "to get them online" for (1) access to Internet resources and (2) create WebPages to preserve faculty materials...
(b)to generate ideas related to intergenerational exchanges and "knowledge transfer"
(c) develop WebSites useful to follow-up on above ideas
(d) to gather information as to whether there are similar projects between retired persons (not just older faculty) and students (not just undergraduates.) going on elsewhere.
(e) to explore necessary logistics, on and off-campus.
(f) start to gather experiences (experimental pilot) with computer-related interaction between you and a selected retired faculty. (maybe an hour per week).

Prof. GŁnter Krumme (Geography, http://faculty.washington.edu/krumme/) is in the early stages of developing an initially small "Service-Learning" program which would bring together -- around the computer and on a one-to-one basis -- undergraduate students and retired or retiring faculty or participants of the "Access" Program. The primary objective would be to work towards the development of simple personal Web pages for senior members of the campus community who wish to remain in contact with their 'old stomping grounds', continue to contribute via the Internet, explore new fields of interest, eager to learn a bit about this new communications technology, and enjoy mutually beneficial interaction with undergraduate students. The logistics have yet to be worked out. Anyone interested in contributing conceptual or practical ideas or who would like to remain informed about the project by Email, should drop G.Krumme a line: email@example.com, or: Box 353550, UW Campus.
