  • A Community Triad – In conclusion
    November 26, 2014
    I just wrote an entire brilliant post about connection and course discussions.  I hit publish and the virtual editors vetoed my post (a page came up stating "Do you want to to do this" - I hit yes and still the post went poof.) It was a bit of a stream of consciousness so I guess that the wisdom of the universe may have been warranted.  In summary, I wrote about missed connection.  The core question is, "What is the subtle difference between setting up a discussion to not only stimulate the sharing of ideas but also cultivate community." Briefly,  because I am not about to write the dissertation I had going previously, the two things that I have found missing from my graduate work experience was a clear opportunity to find connections ( emotional not networking) and deeper dives into the materials.  In particular the latter bothers me.  There seemed to b a lack of balance between discussions that waxed intellectual rather than being a sharing of personal experience.  It begs to the art of positing the question, which we all had to do in this course. I think it would be interesting to try cultivating an in-classroom discussion and then attempting to mimic the exact experience online.  Honestly I am going to go back to something I stated earlier in this series... the instructor MUST participate in the discussion at the primary level and not just as a respondent.  Additionally I think that intermingling questions that illicit different forms of responses, ie theoretic discussion along with sharing personal experience should be more highly polarized. Honestly I really believe we need to better examine the delivery of these discussion questions and also follow up as an instructor/guide.  NOT as sage on the stage but simply as mentor.
