I feel like our learning community is just beginning to hit its stride. While it’s always good to have a break after several months of intense work, it would be nice to be able to continue this momentum (as a community) into subsequent weeks and months. Similar to a Design Studio concept (e.g., Schon), what kinds of creative artifacts could we develop if we were to sustain this community? [or would we drive each other crazy?]
Identity is dynamic, … in flux, and mine was certainly impacted by the experiences in this course. While I occasionally blog and tweet, the class got pushed my thinking more intently about identity as its reflected on the web. How comfortable am I with sharing work I do for academic credit with anyone out there on the open Inter-webs? How does that corresponding level of comfort facilitate or impede my willingness to share? How do my perceptions of the expectations held by other readers/viewers influence the direction, scope and spirit of what I share? In part, I believe the fluidity of the web should allow for a place where “rough draft” thinking can take place — e.g., get it out there and get some feedback from people and then use the community feedback to refine and iterate. But this is likely the ideal side of my identity.
