Openness, constraint and emergence

Jenny Connected

In our work on emergent learning, we (Roy Williams, Simone Gumtau, Regina Karousou and I) have in the papers we have published (see here and here ) suggested that constraints are needed for emergent learning to occur. Openness does not mean that anything goes.

Beyond Institutions – Personal Learning in a Networked World

He always challenges my thinking. A particularly challenging point that Stephen made was ‘Do away with models’ – learning models and design models. It is obvious that people learn differently, have different objectives, priorities, goals and times when they want to learn, but if you use a learning model you are attempting to predefine the outcome, whereas learning should be about discovery and exploration.

Evaluating open learning scenarios – keynote presentation

Jenny Connected

Why are we interested in emergent learning? Following our research into our first MOOC experience, we realized that it was very difficult to ‘pin down’ and explain how and what learners learned in the MOOC and began to understand that this was because much of the learning was unpredictable, unexpected and emergent. We have recently submitted a book chapter in which we discuss the relationship between transformative and emergent learning.

What does it take to make real social innovation?

Chris Corrigan

The people who shepherd the outcomes for those donors must be attentive and accommodating. Most social entrepreneurs start with their very personal obsession to improve lives by solving a challenge or inequality, prefer to spend as little time as possible fund raising, and often bring innovations to the table that decades of nonprofit work have not uncovered. Funds should flow to the organizations making and reporting measurable progress actually solving key challenges.
