Anticipating the Next Wave of Experience Design

John Hagel

Experience design has emerged in part as a response to this growing need we all have.   It is no longer enough to design products and services so that they have aesthetic appeal and perform well.    We are on the cusp of another major shift in the focus of experience design, one that moves far beyond the impact of individual products and services. The design challenge becomes how to design experiences that maximize flow.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Re: Why Intelligent Design Is Going to Win This must be comedy Friday at Tech Central Station. Sure, the United States may well turn to a religion-dominated policy and social agenda; it has happened before. intelligent design people! intelligent design people!

George Siemens

About 20 of the conference attendees are regular keynote presenters in mainstream educational conferences and leaders in fields of learning design, openness, semantic web, data analysis, and social network analysis.

Harold Jarche

But our organizations are not designed for complexity. Understanding complexity must be part of any informed discussions on government policy or governance. Holding this critical space is a key role that government can play in the emerging complex network era.

Evaluation of CL/4291 “Draft text of the Recommendation concerning Open Educational Resources”, UNESCO

11 recommendations to create the future of government

Ross Dawson

Thus it is very encouraging to see its new policy paper, The Future Course of Modern Government , provide some pointed insights and recommendations on how to create the government of the future. The full policy paper is absolutely worth a read for anyone interested in the topic. Other recommendations are bit more of a stretch for traditional government officials, such as the use of crowdsourcing techniques, the co-design of polices, and shared spaces for innovation. *

In each of the last five years, I’ve traveled at least 100,000 miles (160k last year – never again) and have been very blessed to form a global network of contacts – former students, colleagues, and policy/gov’t folks.
