Cracking the Door Open – Nancy White (4 April 2011)

24 February, 2011

When are we working in closed, semi permeable or fully open environments and why?

  • Closed: you control who participates and theoretically, what information stays in or out.
  • Semi-permeable. Working with closed groups for tasks, but often publishing results openly. What has to stay in is not fixed, but negotiable
  • Open: it all happens in public.

Bring your stories, successes, failures, worries, hypothesis, heuristics. We’ll start with a fishbowl (which means we should pre identify a few stories) then dig in for an evening of conversation.

Nancy White is an internationally recognised online facilitation expert-practitioner. She has worked with organisations as such as: The United Nations; Australian Flexible Learning Network; Boeing; the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research; IBM; and the World Bank. She is co-author of Digital Habitats with Etienne Wenger and John D. Smith. Nancy teaches, presents and writes on online facilitation and interaction, social architecture and social media. Nancy confesses to online interaction, learning and chocolate addictions.

Nancy is in Sydney to deliver a workshop on online facilitation.
