Diversity is hard

Jenny Connected

But a key point she makes is that diversity, which is ‘often touted as highly desirable’ is hard – ‘uncomfortable, emotionally exhausting and downright frustrating’. In doing this we reduce diversity. This tendency to try to reduce diversity is not only evident in online networks.

Embracing Uncertainty, Diversity and Othering for Learning

Full Circle Associates

Our hypothesis in the learning to learn project (LAL for the acronym lovers out there) was that simply by creating more space and opportunity for conversational interaction between project staff, new insights would emerge and existing insights would gain wider visibility and application. Through the process, we noted the following three things that made a difference in conversational learning: Come out as a learner.

Lassoing the coltish concepts of Emergent Learning and MOOCs

Jenny Connected

Why is it that when we find something wonderfully creative, emergent and innovative, we often try to ‘capture’ it, constrain and contain it, package it, order it, thereby effectively destroying what it was about it that attracted us to it in the first place?

Evaluating and reflecting on OldGlobeMOOC

To evaluate and reflect on the learning experience of myself and a colleague in the Old Globe MOOC, I have used the Footprints of Emergence framework developed by Roy Williams, Simone Gumtau and myself to explore the relationship between open and prescribed learning in open learning environments.

Evaluating open learning scenarios – keynote presentation

Jenny Connected

The environment encouraged autonomy, diversity, openness and interaction. 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 described this as the sharply emergent zone.

Reflections on the FH Joanneum (Graz) E Learning Conference, 2014

There is a tension between trying to explain emergent learning as related to our work on footprints of emergence, and maintaining an open emergent environment around the topic; something contrary in trying to reify emergent learning?

PLUME: five principles of harvesting

Chris Corrigan

You gather diverse voices together so you can be challenged out of complacency and enter the sphere of innovation. Usefulness is very context dependant and it happens across many different scales. Finally we need to be aware that in participatory work, the harvest is Emergent.

Understanding where you are, not where you think you are: some tips and a process

Chris Corrigan

First we are tempted to fit every outlier into a category, which renders difference and novelty impotent. A gradient of difference, or a range of diversity in a set of data helps us to discover innovative practices and sustain creative tensions.

OLDSMOOC Design

Jenny Connected

My understanding of MOOCs (cMOOCs) is still that they are intended to exemplify the principles of autonomy, diversity, openness and connectedness/interaction. Diversity means amongst other things, a mix of novices and experts (professionals and students) who learn from each other. These questions are of interest to me in relation to my work on emergent learning with Roy Williams and Simone Gumtau. What is the difference between learning design and planning for learning?

Disruptive facilitation #4 – Emergent practice

However there’s an element of risk and courage required to trust yourself and the group to let go of the need to know in advance what will happen and let informal emergence take place.
