Social Networks & Learning: Research Seminar

George Siemens

Last year, TEKRI and Athabasca University hosted a week-long research seminar on networks and learning. The seminar will be held in Edmonton from June 20-24 and is open to students and faculty. The event was quite successful. As a result, we are organizing a similar event this year. It’s an opportunity for review of existing and leading research as well as intensive discussion about the roles of social media and networks in education.

Cynefin for strategy: new seminars

Dave Snowden

So I have changed the complexity seminar to focus on a walk through of a generic approach to strategy based on complexity thinking. The seminars will be strictly limited in numbers, far too many people to my mind advertise a seminar but then deliver a large class lecture.

Set them Free: Our Old Virtual Seminars

Adaptive Path

In 2008 and '09, we produced a handful of virutual seminars on various topics we were interested in at the time.

Short notice seminar option

Dave Snowden

I have just been told that the seminar I am giving at the University of Surrey this Tuesday lunch time is open (although there are limited places). The title of the seminar is: From Induction to Abduction: a new approach to research and productive enquiry. As well as the practice of micro-narrative or abductive research I plan to outline some of the basic theory, in particular to the American Pragmatists Dewey and Peirce.

New seminar programme

Dave Snowden

A mixture of meetings, project work, a couple of rugby matches and a series of one day seminars all make for a rich mix.

New thinking and methods will also be introduced through the seminar series. I'm looking forward to my impending four week tour of New Zealand, Australia and Singapore.

Seminar on complexity

Dave Snowden

We've just had a couple of cancellations on the seminar next week (30th June) so some places are open again. I mix basic teaching with discussing the issues faced by people in the group, so it is a real seminar rather than a lecture or a class. It's a purposefully small group, spending a day understanding the implications for policy and practice of complexity theory.

Boston Seminar/Masterclass

Dave Snowden

Boston on the 10th November sees my one day seminar/masterclass on complexity theory and its implications for organisational development and strategy. We keep these seminars small deliberately as it allows for greater personalisation and provides an ability to deal with the specific situation of each delegate.

The prepared mind

Dave Snowden

One of the key points I have been making in the new seminar (and a few keynotes) over the last week is that resilience requires not just a prepared mind, but also a prepared organisation. It's also really good to be teaching this in a series of seminars on three continents with diverse backgrounds of participants. There are still a couple of places on the Frankfurt seminar next week and Amsterdam the week after for those interested.
