Here's a recording of a recent talk by Etienne Wenger. It's funny, people always refer to their old article, and you don't really think about these people still being around, giving talks etc. I wonder if there is much new from their original work.
W1+W2: Intro to course, and to field
In week one and two, we will get to know each other, together discuss the outline and organization of the course (including the badge structure), get familiar with the technology, and begin getting an overview of the theoretical underpinnings of the field.
Week 1 (April 25-May 1)
- Two meetings on Big Blue Button (choose one): Friday at 9AM EST or Saturday at 5PM EST. Network members are also welcome. We will only have one weekly meeting in the future, but want to make sure everyone get a chance to meet during week 1. LINK (watch this video about how BBB works)
