  • Hi George, I notice that you refer to the Cynefin model in your presentation. I'm busy putting together a draft proposal for a PhD study in education in South Africa and intended using the Cynefin model and the concepts of objectivism and constructivism to give some mental model to instructional designers when deciding when to provide what sort of learning experiences for whom. As I learn more about connectivism and networking, open learing environments, etc. I realise that instructional designers may need to learn how to create the space in which learning can occur and then take on the role of learning experts (not content experts) - i.e. give direction in terms of how to solve something rather than provide the answers. Sounds obvious but a big change needs to occur in organsiations today to allow and encourage this to happen.

  • Slideshare now often garbles the text to the point of making it really dificult to read. Better if we upload a PDF instead.

    Thank you for sharing great resources.
