The first seminar on scaling

Dave Snowden

After my series of posts on scaling it was time to but some of that work into a seminar/training course that I ran with Simon Bennett.

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.

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.

Social networked learning: research seminar

George Siemens

In June, 2010, Terry Anderson and I, along with TEKRI researchers and a few visiting guests, hosted a doctoral research seminar on social networked learning. This year, we (TEKRI: Terry Anderson, Jon Dron, and I) are excited to announce the second version of this research seminar: Social Networks and Learning 2011. This year’s seminar will be held at Athaabsca University in Edmonton from June 20-24 2011.

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. As part of the preparation I have been working on the agenda for the seminars and have made some significant changes to focus on complexity based strategy. 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.

Pioneering New Seminar for Community College Presidents

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.

Seminar on MOOCs, Lyon, France, Day 2

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

We did a seminar with all the teachers and talked about it - talking in very general terms about the digital revolution, about MOOCs, etc. Again these talks are all in French so my note-taking may be inaccurate in places.

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.

Research Seminar: Social Networks and Learning

George Siemens

The first seminar is led by Mark Oehlert and Brent Schenkler , who not only are fun, dynamic, individuals, but are totally into new tools.
