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.

Privilege, beauty and evaluation

Chris Corrigan

I’ve been thinking about this as I have been struggling with watching people be evaluated in their work recently. The evaluator’s job comes with enormous privilege. When an evaluator walks into a process it is amazing how much gravity also enters the work.

Evaluating open learning scenarios – keynote presentation

Jenny Connected

Standard evaluation tools such as questionnaires, tend to be for the benefit of organisations and teachers, rather than for the learners and do not encourage depth of reflection. Here are the slides and notes for the keynote presentation that Roy Williams and I gave at the E Learning Conference, FH Joanneum, in Graz, Austria, on Wednesday 17 September 2014.

Monday Video: 4 Perspectives on CoP Evaluation

#PLENK2010 Evaluation and assessment

Jenny Connected

I will have to listen to the recording again – because I know there is lots of thought provoking stuff in there – but I was distracted through a lot of it by the insistent thought in my head that there is a distinction between assessment and evaluation which Helene said she used interchangeably. For evaluations I am not judging individual responses but looking at responses as a whole. I am also aware of the problems of evaluation.

Although the first two steps of an OODA loop may be fundamental to learning, when organizations that sponsor communities evaluates a community’s value, observe and orient may seem like dispensable preliminaries — part of the cost side of the equation, not the benefit.

Dave Snowden’s reflections on a theory of change

Chris Corrigan

Culture Cynefin Design Evaluation LeadershipDave is working on a theory of change, which I think is a good thing. In this latest post he has a nice summation of the way to move to action in complex situations (like cultures): So where we are looking at culture change (to take an example), we first map the narrative landscape to see what the current dispositional state is. That allows us to look at where we have the potential to change, and where change would be near impossible to achieve.

Monitoring and evaluating communities of practice

Joitske Hulsebosch

We did a research for the IKMemergent program on monitoring and evaluating knowledge management strategies. There are quite some challenges to overcome in monitoring and evaluating the effect of knowledge management strategies and interventies. - Yet anther challenge is to match inherent evaluation goals with extractive goals. An inherent evaluation is for people involved in the community or other effort, an extractive evaluation is for outsiders.
