Technology: CoPs and Blogs (&RSS)

Joitske Hulsebosch

Blogs are more personal, quiet and safer spaces which are open to a slower pace and more reflection. I was so busy talking about blogs that I didn't have time to blog :), nor did I read blogs. I volunteered to summarize a discussion in CPsquare about communities of practice and blogs/RSS.

Challenges for facilitation in communities of practice

Joitske Hulsebosch

Recently I blogged about a facilitation taxonomy developed by Halbana Tarmizi en Gert-Jan de Vreede, you can find the article here. Through a comment on a blogpost somewhere I found a follow-up on that article called challenges for facilitation in communities of practice written by the same authors, in collaboration with Ilze Zigurs. For this study they formulated two research questions: What are the most difficult tasks in CoP facilitation? What are the most important tasks in CoP facilitation?

Advising: Statements to facilitate discussions

Joitske Hulsebosch

This discussion may lead to a complete rephasing of the statement, as the statements are to open the floor. The great beauty of the method (as compared to an open discussion) is that it highlights individual opinions. Yesterday we had a CPsquare session with Robert Tollen who facilitates an online discussion group about Myeloproliferative diseases. He talked about the deep differences in beliefs between members (eg.

With technology, you can break that open.” Through a post by Ethan Zuckerman I can sit in a boring place and still know what Ory Okolloh talked about during the citizen media and blogging conference in South Africa. Ory observes, “In Kenya, you hide information without knowing why you’re hiding it. Mzalendo is putting draft bills online and reporting their status, letting people search by issue, and providing a bill tracker so you can watch the progress of a piece of legislation.

Technology: How to choose an aggregator

Joitske Hulsebosch

She explains why 2006 can be the year of the aggregator because for instance, it is possible to be informed when a colleague has added something on a project you're working on. blogbridge is mentioned as a good one because it is java-based, open soure and designed by someone who understands collaboration and can be integrated with delicious. Denham Grey in a discussion on CPsquare about web 2.0 and communities of practice pointed to a podcast on aggregators.
