Abundance in the workplace

            I am reflecting on Martin Weller's A pedagogy of abundance as shared in #change11 this week and wondering what it looks like in the workplace.  Consider a typical organization in which career ambitions were (are) realized through the power of withholding information, of being the 'go to' person who can make [...] [Link] Thu, 29 Sep 2011 14:48:32 +0000 [Comment]

Complexity, self-organization, and #Change11: reactions to Siemen's presentation on online courses

I read a recent presentation from George Siemens on Self-Organization in Online Courses (embedded below) that addressed some aspects of learning complexity (through the context of a MOOC) that intrigued me. In particular, I enjoyed several of the sources/quotes as they gave me pause to reflect on my own learning as it progresses through Change 2011 (complex), and my everyday life (more complex).

The roll of the teacher...
brainysmurf, 75 - Change MOOC Reflections, September 29, 2011.

I see a profound shift here rather than a loss. All of that encouragement, nourishing, feedback, reflection, mentorship and critique that was formerly the exclusive domain of the teacher is now distributed among network participants. This is potentially hundreds of fellow moocers and mooc facilitators as well as anyone else in the webosphere who chooses to chime in. In essence, the teacher is no longer the only one who knows or defines what 'right' is and is not the only one who guides us there. I don't feel alone here. I feel that I am among like-minded souls and I get more out of this space than I might in a traditional classroom where I could feel alone in the [Comment]
