Communities of practice: creativity and innovation

My uncle-in-law (or how do you call the uncle of your husband?) is a piano player in the Dutch Swing College Band. The fact that we have never gone to hear them play will show how much we care about jazz music. (he he is the fourth from the left side).

Practical examples: community of ICT4D trainers

Joitske Hulsebosch

Technologies supporting distributed communities of practice are rapidly developing, and the ICT4D trainers’ community may make use of a wide range of technologies. I'm happy that I can finally link to a four-page summary of the community readiness assessment we did last year, titled Train the trainers or let the trainers train themselves , a collaboration between IICD , Learning Alliances , and an intern from new media and digital culture.

Consult intensively, but keep decision-making simple: we need to make a clear distinction between the activity of involving and consulting stakeholders throughout an infrastructure project, as compared with distributing and confusing the decision-making responsibility. Manage the timeline: it’s rarely possible in large organisations to completely own the timeline of a project, because infrastructure is all about inter-linkages, dependencies, and distributed effort.

Practical examples: Power relations in negotiating a shared object in NGO-development cooperation

Joitske Hulsebosch

Hoes does this 'inherent contradiction' in aid (to aim at equality and partnerships in conditions of unequal distribution of resources) emerge in actual development encounters? Tiina Kontinen wrote a paper on Producing a 'project' -power relations in negotiating a shared object in NGO development cooperation. I read it sometime ago, but blogging and summarizing it will help me to draw my own lessons.

An online conference call seems like a simple, cheap and accessible way for bringing a distributed group together. When you don’t know how to ride a bike, walking is always faster! As we use our e-collaboration community as a laboratory for experimenting with e-tools, we decided to prepare an upcoming f2f meeting using online teleconferencing. In the first meeting we experimented with High Speed Conferencing.

Community as Curriculum – vol 2. The Guild/Distributed Continuum

Delicious/choconancy/community

rhizomatic learning distributes the channels of knowing outside traditional hierarchical models and into the social realm, allowing for help in sifting through the flow of information and knowledge. The other, the distributed model of community, i.e., multiple membership roles in multiple communities, offers far greater flexibility , though less control. It can be seen as a gateway to a more distributed, more flexible view of learning communities. Distributed Community.

Social Networks: Communities: a difference or two

John Tropea - Delicious Community

Technically speaking: Social Networks offer individuals virtual tools to link their distributed activities in one place, network with eachother and share stuff with no associated cause/rationale beyond ’social networking’ Community platforms are focused on communal activities dedicated to consensual action or knowledge transformation around a specific topic/issue/campaign. This does not mean the social guidelines don’t exist though - they are now more distributed.

This accelerates change and intensifies competition, moving the source of economic value of companies from knowledge “stocks” to learning “flows”; static, codified knowledge is replaced by distributed tacit knowledge and collective intelligence, and, more importantly, the ability of the firm to generate new knowledge, to disperse that knowledge, to iterate it and learn from the iterations.
