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. And what if collective learning WAS the harvest?

A decade of living and learning, hosting and harvesting

Chris Corrigan

Since then, I have facilitated literally hundreds of gatherings from two person retreats to international conferences using a variety of participatory methodologies. I have mostly survived by holding questions, opening myself to learning, and reminding myself that I don’t have to be the expert all the time.

Chris Corrigan

Nancy White

Now that some very crude and un-scientific definitions of engagement are on the table, let’s look at how we, as facilitators, can encourage engagement online. If that is the reality, consider sub groups and weave ideas between them as their facilitator.

Sagan says that “the window is still open for broadcasters to create long- and short-form programming that -- when expertly presented and searchable -- can be monetized and generate a new audience and new revenues.”. Another success component is effectively harvesting breaking news about local events to generate this hyper-local content.
