Mastering the Art of Collaboration Through Conversation

We (Carolyn Rose, Dragan Gasevic, Ryan Baker, and I) have spent the last several months thinking through the course structure and format. This is a short overview of the innovations that we want to explore during the course.

Stop Blaming the Tools when Collaboration Fails

Luis Suarez

. We, human beings, seem to always be very keen on blaming the tools (and technology, in general, for that matter) whenever things just don’t work out all right , specially, in the collaboration space. Of course, we all know the tools can’t talk back to us, so they can’t defend themselves.

Collaboration, Communication, and Cooperation

Clark Quinn

5 Ways to Become Less Collaborative at Work

Creating the Connectivist Course

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

One was the beginning of open online courses. We had both seen them in operation in the past, and had most recently been influenced by Alec Couros’s online graduate course and David Wiley’s wiki-based course. What made these courses important was that they invoked the idea of including outsiders into university courses in some way. The course was no longer bounded by the institution. But beyond that, the course was non-traditional.

Collaborating when it matters

Clark Quinn

Collaboration was critical. An oncologist and a specialist in the location were required to determine a course of action: “If you’re ever in a situation like this, having world-class experts is so critical!

Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources

Tony Karrer

I received an inquiry about resources that would help instructors who are about to move into teaching online courses. If you are going to teach a course online or run an online learning event or an online conference, then there’s even more to being successful at that.

Czech Course Followup Questions

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I was asked the following questions after my presentation to CZ Course RVP_VT21 yesterday: (Elements of Coop.) We could talk about how better or worse to design these materials, but that now leaves the domain of cooperative versus collaborative learning. How to ensure any educational outcomes in accordance with short-time curricular aims? Students having autonomy do not usually feel about the aim the same way as teachers. Is it a call for a curricular change?

The Art of Collaborating Effectively in Virtual Teams

The Future of Collaboration Lies in Human Resources AND Management’s Hands

Luis Suarez

“ Here we are, 2014 and still wondering what the future of collaboration is — as if we didn’t know already. Despite all efforts to trump it or get rid of it altogether in favour of other noble concepts like cooperation , the hard truth is that collaboration has always been here. It’s because all along, knowledge workers have been encouraged to compete with one another versus helping, caring or collaborating with one another.

From Social Learning to Workforce Collaboration

Jane Hart

Eagle-eyed readers will have noticed that I’ve changed this blog’s title from “Learning in the Social Workplace” to “Workforce Collaboration” Why?

Identifying a collaboration platform

Harold Jarche

According to Jane, Step One in this transition is: There are, of course, a number of steps on the transition path to a post-LMS future, and one of the first inevitably involves taking a good hard look at how your LMS is performing. Step Two, or a concurrent step, would be to look at how to enhance collaboration. First of all, collaborative work tools must be simple to be effective. A collaboration platform that is over-engineered would be counterproductive.
