A presentation that I didn't get to finish as I mis judged the time totally!
This presentation was designed to make links between Action Learning/Research and the practical use of Social Media applications. A key message was this ... "it's the emergence of new social behaviours that is important to focus on and learn from ,,, not the technology itself".

From my own perspective, if you let-go and use social media like blogs and Twitter, you will spend more time reflecting and learning from your own action.

I had hoped to engage the group in a discussion about how "they" could apply social media applications in an Action Learning or Action Research context ... that discussion never happened!

  • So over the years I have had years of practice in Action learning … holding up the mirror …
  • And in search of best practice ways to bring about behavioiur change … in searching for the magic levers … I realised that in my field of practice that everything is COMPLEX and you have to …
  • I’ll get some practical ideas on HOW we need to work and shift our mindset when dealing with Complex Adaptive systems
  • In each, action informs reflection and is informed by it. The reflection produces the learning (in action learning) or research (in action research). Think of both learning and research as understanding. In both, the action is changed as a result of the learning/research, and leads to more learning/research.
  • Action Learning/Research can be both supported by the Social Media space and tool ANDThe use of Social Media in action is driving new behaviours and social practices that support critical reflection and experiential learning

  • Which domain is behaviour change in? Crowd to call out

  • For innovation to flourish in a country or a place, requires the contribution of many actors, from universities, to corporates, to small companies, to public sector institutions etc. However looking at the supposed innovation in most countries, there is a at best a multihub network where universities, governments and corporates have undue power. I would argue that good ideas come from anywhere and we need a much more distributed (along the lines of picture c above) economic and social landscape to allow these to flourish. This has numerous implications for intellectual property regimes and other structures which are more than enough for another blog post so I won’ t go into that here.
