Week 2 - Enforcing Independence (Jan 21-28)
READ THIS FIRST - your unguide to rhizo14 http://davecormier.com/edblog/2014/01/12/your-unguided-tour-of-rhizo14/
Learning rhizomatically is the goal, but how do we get there? The position of teachers is based on whole set of power structures that create a reliance on the teacher for setting objectives, assessing progress and giving direction. How can we take people who've spent their whole lives believing that this is 'learning' and MAKE them independent?
FWIW this is my best shot at it. https://docs.google.com/a/upei.ca/document/d/1-Jqr08jT_iehRY0piUYDaZGGW29uuGehdFVF08EpDO4/edit (feel free to leave comments)

Week 2 Challenge
Explore a model of enforced independence. How do we create a learning environment where people must be responsible? How do we assure ourselves that learners will self-assess and self-remediate?
Week 2 Live event
Same time as last week - 8:30pm Atlantic Time. Same format. http://davecormier.com/edblog/2014/01/16/rhizo14-live-session-unhangout/ We're going to try it again and see if we can smooth out the edges. For those who can't make it, we're going 4 hours earlier in week 3 :)
