Studying how teachers can publish their lesson plans online and collaborate to make them better.
This study group invites educators to share their lessons online and find collaboraters who will help make those lessons better. This helps the educator and the entire Open Educational Resources community online by putting more materials out there, then showing how to not only use them, but improve upon them.
This study group's origins are are in two previous P2PU courses: cycle 4 and cycle 5 as well as a speech by Charles Jeffrey Danoff at Wikimania 2010.

Putting together my talk on CLP on Thursday (http://openeducation2011.sched.org/event/ad317c7e9cedb5e1b36b1a859f4c2659) it will focus on a case study of the past year in CLP.

Considering right now if you google "Lesson Plan" the Wikipedia comes up first, the resource should be improved. Need to be careful 'cause the entry is not a "how to" its an encyclopedia entry about the subject.
