Beyond Institutions – Personal Learning in a Networked World

Jenny Connected

Although I have only listened to the recording of this talk, I found it more interesting than the first talk , which I listened to live, having been a delegate at the conference, although there was plenty of interest in that one too. The thrust of this talk, from my perception, is, as the title suggests, that learning is no longer in the control of institutions, but increasingly personal and in the control of learners as they occupy a networked world.

The Sunbelt Conference of the International Network of Social Network Analysis ( INSNA ) is an inspiring event, whether you are a beginner or a full-blown SNA genius and one of the great things about it is that it always starts with two days of training workshops, before the three days of 700 talks in parallel start. They alternate between the US and the rest of the world and this year the conference will be in Brighton, UK.

Chris Corrigan

This is good wisdom, friends: My experience is that – if doing a mix of ‘traditional’ format conference and Open Space – the most ideal situation is traditional, (recreation day before or after that or after the whole conference) and then Open Space.
