Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. Which led to SLeD protypes, etc.

Ensuring knowledge flow through narration

Harold Jarche

Can the training department, or learning & development, directly contribute to innovation, or are they merely bystanders? When it comes down to it, much of learning is conversation. Work narration already happens outside the organization, and it’s time to bring it inside.

Response to Dron

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I don''t want to restate the theses of connectivism as I understand it but it may help readers of Jon Dron''s to identify where his exegesis leads him into misunderstanding. Here''s his paper , which you may need to read first. I also don''t care whether it is original to me, whether it borrows from someone else''s work, or any of the usual academic trappings.

David Weinberger

I’m listening to a simultaneous translation, so I will get more wrong than usual. Investigate what’s happening and how our users are operating. Librarians need to be at the heart of education. They need to be teaching media literacy. They need to be going where the students are so they can consult with librarians at any time. Help students decide which journals to publish in.

Becoming MOOC

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

These were the original MOOCs, and they posed a much greater challenge to both the educational institutions that offered them and the participants who studied in them. Students have to manage their own time, find their own resources, and structure their own learning. For this reason, it is argued, students must already have a high degree of skill and internet savvy in order to be successful. As Keith Brennan writes, "Not everyone knows how to be a node.
