PLUME: five principles of harvesting

Chris Corrigan

This morning we began our Harvesting and Collective Sensemaking online course. Specifically these principles apply to harvesting in complex situations where you are using participatory methods to make sense of and make decisions. It can be documentation, relationships and insight.

The #OCE2012 Harvest

Michelle Laurie

How do we document, share and foster ongoing learning? A few weeks ago I co-designed/facilitated a learning event for BC Campus called “ The Online Community Enthusiasts Gathering “ This is an annual gathering of interesting people mostly from the Lower Mainland/Vancouver Island. Here is the video from Heather Kincaid: Heather also put together a harvest using “storify” which made a story from all of the tweeting during the day: [link].

This is probably why I was so attracted to the “drawing on walls&# involved in graphic facilitation , kinesthetic modeling and just plain PLAY as a way to work together. I appreciate the facilitation tip.

Capacity, engagement and authentic learning

Chris Corrigan

What we are getting instead is some terrific collections of tools, handbooks and harvests of processes. This.pdf of a Handbook for Civic Engagement prepared for a community process in the United States is an excellent example of the kind of harvesting that is useful. “Engagement washing” initiatives don’t usually leave these kinds of documents in the places where the engagement took place. I think there is probably nothing new under the sun.

Rosviz 2015 – Guest Blog

Michelle Laurie

You might have heard about graphic facilitation, been in a meeting with visuals as part of the process, or simply wondered what all the fuss is about. Why would we change the way we look at facilitated experience? My harvest? Harvest can look like whatever we want it to.

Wow!

Michelle Laurie

That is how I felt after doing two graphic facilitation workshops back to back. The last half of day two isn’t drawn yet so in the meantime, a quick summary is that we spend most of the afternoon doing collective visual harvests of what we learned.

A couple of great days in Montreal

Chris Corrigan

I presented most of the work that I have been documenting here over the last few months, and later led a small group through a cafe where we engaged in the creation of a sensemaking framework and used a pen and paper signification framework.

How to be a Network Gardener

Net-Map Toolbox

They are called “Network Facilitators”, “Network Organizers” or even “Network Managers” But I think the term “Network Gardener” describes much more tanglibly, what those people do who help large and dispersed networks of people grow toward common goals. Harvest: Your network can bear amazing fruit. But if there is no one to harvest it, it will be there just for a moment and then be gone.

Inappropriate action planning makes me sad

Chris Corrigan

A few months later there was a harvest document lovingly stewarded by a few people. Conversation Facilitation Learning Last year in Slovenia, a group of Art of Hosting practitioners gatherd for a week at a well loved 17th century manor to be together. I suppose you could call it a “conference” but we all called it a “Learning Village.” ” And it was a learning village. The agenda we set was for a five day Open Space gathering.

As we seek to facilitate change, we are changed. After each session which used a knowledge sharing tool or method, we took time to debrief both the experience of the method, how it was facilitated and why it was chosen, leading to a brief discussion of when something may or may NOT be useful.

Review of Kate Pugh’s Sharing Hidden Know-How

The book describes Knowledge Jam, “a facilitated collaborative method for helping organizations rediscover the fundamental discipline of knowledge transfer – the conversation.” I have known Kate for some time and am very pleased to see her methods documented in this excellent book. The book further describes Knowledge Jam as a “process is built around the disciplines of facilitation, conversation, and translation.
