Lurkers: the game show

36 views

Published on

Do you love or loathe the term ‘lurker’? Do you think lurking is an effective strategy for learning, or do you think that lurkers are just freeloaders who are parasitic on others? This session will be an exploratory investigation into the controversational term 'lurking': both into the meaning of the term and into the possible value of ‘lurking’ as a learning approach. Join us as we play a game of ‘Lurkers’ and attempt to flesh out arguments for and against the term and the behaviour. Be prepared to be open-minded and to contribute to an ongoing debate. Most of all, be willing to share new approaches.

We would also like to open this discussion up to those not able to attend in person, so nearer the time we’ll be announcing a couple of related activities that everyone, whether present of not, can participate in.
