Emergent Learning from thinking about Emergent Learning

Jenny Connected

On Tuesday of this week we ran our second webinar on Emergent Learning and Drawing Footprints of Emergence for the SCoPE community and any one else who wanted to attend. And drawing footprints of emergence requires a bit of effort – well more than a bit.

Questions about Emergent Learning

We had a great webinar on Emergent Learning on Tuesday, courtesy of Sylvia Currie and the SCoPE community at BCcampus. It’s really stimulating to discover others ‘out there’ who are as interested in emergent learning as we are. Doesn’t emergent learning happen all the time?

Emily Dickinson and Emergent Learning

Jenny Connected

At the beginning of the week I was at the ALT-C conference with Roy Williams, running a workshop on Emergent Learning. Attending the conference has meant that emergent learning, which we have been researching for a few years now, has, this week, been right at the front of my mind.

Engestrom, Wenger and Emergent Learning

In revisiting these videos, I have been struck by how much they both have to say about emergent learning, but in different terms. Engestrom talks about emergent learning in terms of ‘expansive learning’.

Describing open learning environments and emergent learning

Jenny Connected

Recent work on developing our framework for describing emergent learning (see Footprints of Emergence and Emergent Learning and Learning Ecologies in Web 2.0 ) has been taxing our powers of description. This ongoing work in seeking to describe and clarify what we mean by emergent and prescribed learning is progressing on our open wiki ‘ Footprints of Emergence ’.

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.

Emergent learning in open environments

In my last post I wrote that I would come back to further discussion of what we mean by emergent learning. Emergence has been discussed and defined by a number of authors, such as Cilliers (2005), Goldstein (2009) and, at the international systems level, Knorr-Cetina (2005).

Emergent Learning at ALTC2103

Jenny Connected

It’s ironic that we were talking about emergent learning and the factors that might need to be considered to promote it, but we still fell into a fairly conventional way (a trap?) As I said above I enjoyed my day and feel that the handful of connections I made were well worth the time and money I spent going to ALT-C, but if I think about it in terms of emergent learning – did I have a transformative, surprising, unpredictable experience, then ‘No’ I didn’t.

A new paper on Emergent Learning in IRRODL

This issue includes a paper written by Roy Williams, Simone Gumtau and me - Footprints of Emergence. In this paper we continue to explore the ideas around emergent learning which we first discussed in a paper published (also in IRRODL) in 2011 – Emergent Learning and Learning Ecologies in Web 2.0. In that paper we focused on developing our understanding of emergent and prescribed learning in relation to ways of working on the Web.
