Seeing rhizomatic learning and MOOCs through the lens of the Cynefin framework
Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog » change11, Mar 04, 2012
The Change11 course has brought me many realizations, but none so useful as the Cynefin framework. As i suggested in my last post, i’ve been working on bringing it into my decision making at my day job. In the last four weeks it’s occurred to me that it is also an excellent way to help [...] Sun, 04 Mar 2012 22:23:42 +0000 [Comment]

Change11 MOOC – First six weeks of 2012
Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog » change11, Feb 14, 2012
Ah… the ever increasingly misnamed change11. I don’t think I’ve ever been on a journey that i’ve been less prepared for… and still gotten so much out of. It’s been a season of change for me, I’ve moved houses, spent two months involved in our schools future discussion as an informal consultant, and have tried [...] Tue, 14 Feb 2012 02:43:59 +0000 [Comment]

Rhizomatic learning – Response for day 2 and 3
Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog » change11, Nov 09, 2011
I knew i wouldn’t get it done every night… but here is the second attempt at pulling together some threads of feedback and organizing them here for later. (see my intro post if you don’t know what i’m talking about) A metaphor too far Terry Anderson layed a pretty heavy critique on the session from [...] Thu, 10 Nov 2011 00:24:57 +0000 [Comment]

Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog » change11, Nov 07, 2011
So I’m facilitating this week of discussion on some stuff i’ve been talking about… and people are talking back. This openness stuff is for the birds Wow. some kind of a day. I make no promises of being able to do this all this week… but i’m going to try. I know if i don’t [...] Tue, 08 Nov 2011 01:59:15 +0000 [Comment]

Rhizomatic Learning – Why we teach?
Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog » change11, Nov 05, 2011
It’s my week at #change11. My topic? Rhizomatic Learning. Rhizomatic learning is a way of thinking about learning based on ideas described by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari in a thousand plateaus. A rhizome, sometimes called a creeping rootstalk, is a stem of a plant that sends out roots and shoots as it spreads. It [...] Sat, 05 Nov 2011 19:50:18 +0000 [Comment]

Change 11 – catching up
Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog » change11, Oct 23, 2011
We’ve had five speakers of change11 and i thought it might be a nice time to try and pull some reflections together and maybe offer a point of departure for someone taking the course a little late. I myself haven’t had the time to devote to the course that I’d hoped in the beginning, and [...] Sun, 23 Oct 2011 15:03:57 +0000 [Comment]

Why teaching isn’t selling
Dave Cormier, Dave's Educational Blog » change11, Sept 26, 2011
Boring preamble I’ve been trying to think my way through the reasons why I’ve spent so much time in the last five years tracking down what i’ve called rhizomatic learning/rhizomatic education/rhizomatic thinking… I’ll be presenting in the #change11 mooc before long and am committed to putting together the week in such a way that those [...] Tue, 27 Sep 2011 02:35:36 +0000 [Comment]

Change MOOC ebook – The textbook as product and artifact
, Dave's Educational Blog » change11, Aug 15, 2011
The idea of a MOOC was really a response to something that was already happening. I was talking to Stephen Downes and George Siemens in the summer of 2008 after their landmark CCK08 course had crossed the 1500 mark in registration (i think it ended north of 2300) and they asked me to play along [...] Tue, 16 Aug 2011 00:30:00 +0000 [Comment]
