Team Synthesis Presentations
In your teams you’ll go over your synthesis for the first block of the class. We’re looking forward to hearing from you and seeing how each of your teams tackled this task.
If things are getting bad, we can split after the Synthesis Presentations.
Conversations Related to (Incidental) Openness
Let’s take a little time to discuss some of the notions of open education and what it might mean to us. We’ll also share a few stories of incidental openness from around Penn State and talk a bit about how it may or may not constitute open education.
Readings and Activities
- Let’s continue reading Wenger, this time starting on page 45 and ending on page 72.
- We’d like you to also read a few pieces from the Cluetrain manifesto. We’d like you to read the Forward, the 95 Theses, Elevator Rap, and the Introduction. The entire Cluetrain is available online for free, so have at it … you are welcome to read more.
- Complete your team writing with an emphasis on Community. We’d like you to also consider the 95 Theses as part of your reflection, citing which of the 95 that resonated the most with your team as it relates to the conversations we’ve been having in class.
