Communication for mentors

Viv Mcwaters

I’ve been asked to design and deliver a short session on communication skills (2 hours) as part of a longer training for a group of mentors.

Using Collaboration Patterns for Contextualizing Roles in Community Systems Design

Making CommunitySense

On October 28, I presented my paper “Using Collaboration Patterns for Contextualizing Roles in Community Systems Design&# at the Community Informatics Research Network 2010 Conference (CIRN 2010) in Prato, Italy.

We examine the role of domain, conversation, and functionality roles in modelling community activation.

Micro-blogging: Friend or Foe For Unified Communications

Collaborative Thinking

The document (" From Twitter To Enterprise Micro-Blogging " Note: requires Burton client access), takes a very broad look at how micro-blogging will reshape communication patterns. My premise (which I've publically discussed previously in this blog, sometimes under the term "social messaging") is that micro-blogging's broadcast model, coupled with its "follow", hashtag and other filtering/categorizing capability creates a "sense of space" within the stream.

To that end, I've been exploring text-based modeling and simulation for the last few years. Recently I've begun to merge the ideas of literate programming and organizational modeling into what you might call literate modeling. Of course, you can document normal models extensively, too.
