A detour to consider pacing: Opening up my course #MSLOC430 #WOLweek

Update on day 2 of #WOLweek. My plans today were to make some headway in identifying new readings for my course, and I had a wee bit of success. More organizing and reacquainting myself with a few of articles that I had saved as potential readings.… Continue reading

Rise of the iSwarm: A First Global Look at the Rhizo14 Auto-ethnography

I started my analysis of prepositions in an earlier post by analyzing two sentences from the auto-ethnography, one written by Maha Bali and one by Sarah Honeychurch. This quickly revealed to me that I was not going to manage this analysis by hand.… Continue reading

Challenge 1: Finding open content to open a course

This is not a surprise. In a perfect world, I would be able to share – in an open course – a selection of both academic and (thoughtful) practitioner readings that point to common themes and/or raise questions about our thinking or assumptions concerning enterprise social networking.… Continue reading

Embedding Google Slides into the #vLE

Outlining #msloc430 course topics and flow

I continue to think about opening up my course – MSLOC 430 – on enterprise social networks and knowledge sharing and am in the process of tweaking the course topics I cover and the general flow of the course.
