Mathemagenic blog networking study
Portals and KM
DECEMBER 4, 2008
Lilia Efimova is running a wonderful series on some research she conducted as part of her doctoral studies at Telematica Instituut, Netherlands. Here is the overview of her blog networking study. As Lilia points out other distribution channels will take much longer to get the work out so it is great to see preliminary results in draft form on her blog. I wish had these channels when I was a student but my doctorate was done before personal computers, much less blogs.
Technology and Culture: the introduction of the milktank in the Netherlands
NOVEMBER 20, 2005
The story of the Suri in Ethiopia and the introduction of guns reminded me of the introduction of the milktank in the Netherlands, which made a lot of impression on me when I read about it during my studies. Milk used to be collected in milkcontainers, which farmers put by the road side. But when the milktank was introduced (around 1975), the factories stopped to collect the milkcontainers and farmers had to use a milktank on their farms.

What would serve the function of the Netherlands monarchy?
What can knowledge interventions contribute to development?
AUGUST 23, 2011
One of the first questions was 'what kind of knowledge should the Netherlands 'export' or 'transfer' ? But I guess the question of relevant knowledge within the Netherlands could be asked at a global, policy level in the sense of what are the strengths and expertise areas of the Netherlands. Can we in the Netherlands also learn from developing countries? I was interviewed for Vice Versa and asked for input.
From intuition to knowing for sure: a case of applying learning analytics at course level

The reason for her research and book was the quest of her sons to find a study areas , one wants to be a journalist and the other wants to study medicine. Your birth in the Netherlands, Europe or the US will no longer be a guarantee for a good job, we must increasingly compete with other professionals from around the world (not without reason that the tigers moms in China described by Amy Chua get so much attention ).

Designing an online and face-to-face learning trajectory
JULY 15, 2009
I co-facilitated an online trajectory about dairy development with dairy practitioners (for Heifer in collaboration with Agri-ProFocus) before a face-to-face learning event in the Netherlands. Almost half of the ‘Ningers’ could not participate in the event in the Netherlands.
Children, not chimps, prefer collaboration: Humans like to work together in solving tasks -- chimps don't

OCTOBER 17, 2011
13, 2011) Recent studies have shown that chimpanzees possess many of the cognitive prerequisites necessary for humanlike collaboration. Chimpanzees, on the other hand, show no such preference according to a study of 3-year-old German kindergarteners and semi-free ranging chimpanzees, in which the children and chimps could choose between a collaborative and a non-collaboration problem-solving approach. Thats according to a study of. > Science News. Blog Cite. Email.

Social networks and informal support: the big shift for policy
FEBRUARY 24, 2011
I’m just back from an utterly absorbing study tour in the Netherlands, organised by my friend Jan Steyaert for researchers from the Centre for Social Justice in the UK. It’s obvious that informal support and social networks can be critical to the way society looks after its members.
Reflections from 2011 – A World Without Email – The Documentary

AUGUST 27, 2009
Q1: why didn’t you study the non bloggers among knowledge workers? This is something I wanted to blog for a while, but – hey – it’s better late than never :). I did my PhD in Utrecht University , which is old (founded in 1636) and quite traditional.
Facilitating learning of our kids
FEBRUARY 3, 2015
We practice a holistic approach to learning: exploring different perspectives on a new phenomena, looking not only at its parts, but also interrelations between them, and studying things in a broader context.
Informal support: I ask you
FEBRUARY 4, 2014
Two examples: in 2004 they published Building a good life for older people in local communities , a delight which I’ve cited many times; or you could go back to 1998 for their superb study on the importance of ‘low level’ preventive services to older people.
The ‘request scruple’ and the demand for neighbourliness
MARCH 2, 2011
The study was about ‘the significance of proximity’ and looked at the nature of informal care at neighbourhood level. What Lilian found and describes is starting to excite the social welfare field in the Netherlands, and there are good reasons to reflect on her conclusions.
Learning about upscaling of dairy development online and face-to-face
I collaborate, e-collaborate, we collaborate
JULY 13, 2009
Almost half of the ‘Ningers’ could not participate in the event in the Netherlands. Heifer in collaboration with Agri-ProFocus organized a learning event on July 2nd about dilemmas in upscaling of dairy development. The idea to start online was born a few months earlier.

Virtual and real stereotypes
DECEMBER 23, 2006
I decided to turn myself into a man (wasn't very hard) because some people who meet me online without seeing my picture, think I'm a man (the name Joitske is a strange name anyhow even in the Netherlands, could go for a man and woman).
Expertise and Ave Maria
AUGUST 9, 2009
When I returned from working in Mali, Ethiopia and Ghana and started to work in the Netherlands I was at times surprised about work given to younger and junior employees. Image via Wikipedia I'm interested in expertise: what is it and how to build it?
Pathways into working in virtual teams
SEPTEMBER 20, 2008
I'm working with Mark Turpin and Sibrenne Wagenaar on a study into impact evaluation of knowledge management interventions for the IKM emergent research programme. Since Mark is based in South Africa, and we are based in the Netherlands, we have to use online tools to communicate and organize our work. When we had a skype conference call, we opened a chatroom to take notes. However, Mark couldn't see the chatroom and I explained what he should see on the bottom of the screen.
CD creates £2.16 of value for every £1 invested

Work reported in the Netherlands in 1989 suggested a ratio of 15.8:1. We couldn't do much with that data now, and this new study is obviously timely. Community development workers and their allies acrosss the country need to get their hands on the figures from this study, and use them to minimise the damage caused by uninformed funding cuts that threaten to remove the catalysts for genuine empowerment, co-production and civic involvement.
The dynamics of managing/nurturing networks of practice
JUNE 3, 2010
Journal of Management Studies, 47(1), 85-108 The authors make a distinction between NoPs and CoPs; networks of practice and communities of practice. Research has been done in a development organization founded in 1965 and headquartered in the Netherlands (Dutch people can easily guess :).

So in the Netherlands, joint initiatives like Linkis and Impulsis were started by development organisations to support the private initiatives. Lau Schulpen of CIDIN did a study into private initiatives in Ghana and Malawi.
On passion, imperfections, confessional writing and fears (re: dissertation goes to a printer)
MAY 14, 2009
In the Netherlands PhD dissertations are usually published as books. The things that make it difficult are those that I should be comfortable with, given what I blog and I study blogging - passion, imperfections and confessional writing. Historically dissertations in the Netherlands are accompanied by stellingen , propositions that sum up one’s PhD work. [This has been in drafts for a while, so don't be surprised with the date :)].
Dion Hinchcliffe Enterprise 2.0 Conference Workshop – Part Two

David said that the Netherlands government saves over 25% of reporting costs by standardizing and making data more transparent. Dion said these factors came from actual case studies. This is part two of opening workshop by Dion Hinchcliffe on Implementing Enterprise 2.0 at the Boston Enterprise 2.0 conference. Dion brought up a guest speaker David Stephenson who he said is the “world’s leader in democratizing data.”
