    1. But, let's turn our attention to HyFlex for a moment.

      Great points here! How many of our experiments with hybrid online-F2F experiences failed fundamentally because of bad design? "No boundaries" is not a design, and "all things to all people" is not inclusion.

    2. You can have the illusion that watercooler talk "just happens," hence cultivating a community seems seamless in a F2F context, but you're really not examining the factors that lead you there, and how's privileged.

      Enormously important. Thought exercise: who is left out of your "seamless" interactions because of design factors like space and time? (And that's before we even get into the questions of for whom a community is cultivated.)

    1. Jean Paul invented a similar system and called it Witz. Like Tesauro, Jean Paul considered that the matter was to cede a prearranged ge-ography of places where everything had its own seat but was also compelled to remain in its own seat without possible deviation. The dismantlement of this architecture was required to change the rhetorical invention--that is, the retrieval of what is already known but has been forgotten--into an invention in the modern, scientific sense of the term.73 Also similar to Tesauro, accord-ing to Jean Paul, such an invention or discovery could occur only through the jumbled recording of notes taken from readings (or, from personal reflections) and retrievable by means of a subject index. By searching and recombining, the compiler would have put into practice the chance principle on which the whole knowledge storage mechanism was based; he would have likely discov-ered similarities and connections between remote items that he would have otherwise overlooked.

      73 Cf. Götz Müller, Jean Pauls Exzerpte (Würzburg, 1988), 321–22

      I'm not quite sure I understand what the mechanism of this is specifically. Revisit it later. Sounds like it's using the set up the system not only to discover the adjacent possible but the remote improbable.

    1. Leaders need to continue that communication and develop those relationships in remote and hybrid working environments, whether those environments become an ongoing fixture of the institution or are only part of a business continuity plan.

      This is the tough bit. Working fully remote for two organizations now, I find it is important to have in-person time with colleagues—meetings, meals, relaxation—to build relationships that can weather rough patches when people aren't face-to-face. In addition to communication plans for remote and hybrid, leaders need to recognize that humans are social creatures and almost all will benefit from having relationship-building time.

    1. Professor Lucy Easthope. (2021, October 20). WFH really is only for a very privileged few now. Not sure how that can stay a “thing” as an NPI.

    1. Remote Access is something that we are really excited about because it will allow our support team to give you a seamless and high level of support that is truly unmatched. When you need extra help, you can enable the Remote Access toggle with a single click. This will send a secure token to the Elegant Themes support staff that they can use to log in to your WordPress Dashboard. No passwords are shared and there is no need to send the token to our team yourself. It all works seamlessly in the background. While remote access is enabled, our team will be able to log in to your website and help explore whatever problems you are experiencing. You can even enable it preemptively before chatting with our support team so that we can jump right in if necessary. By default, our support staff will have limited access to your website using a custom WordPress support role. You can also enable full admin access if requested. Remote access is automatically disabled after 4 days, or when you disable Divi. You can also turn it off manually after an issue has been resolved, and of course, Remote Access can only be enabled by you, the website owner, and not by Elegant Themes or anyone else. The Remote Access system is wonderful because it saves tons of time during support chat, and it saves you the hassle of having to debug certain complicated issues yourself. It allows us to take a hands on approach to solving problems quickly, instead of wasting hours or days chatting back and forth.

    1. productivity gains for our highest value workers has been immense. The typical time-sucks and distractions of in-office work have been eliminated, as have their personal time investments like physically visiting the grocery store or running errands. Mental focus on productive efforts is near constant. Perhaps most importantly, work *travel* is not happening. Valuable collaborations with colleagues, customers, regulators or other partner companies aren’t delayed by the vagaries of the various groups’ availability to meet in person, navigating being in different cities, flights, hotels, etc. Collaboration happens as soon as you have the idea to meet via Zoom. And a lot *more* collaboration happens as a result. It may be lower productivity collaboration than meeting in person around a whiteboard (maybe), but the sheer quantity of it means on net there’s perhaps been a boom in cross-pollination of ideas

      Benefits of remote working, according to one executive

    1. Most Canadian institutions have built their internationalization programs in a way that minimizes their costs (no new programs or delivery sites) but also maximizes the costs to the students (high tuition plus displacement plus living expenses).  But what if there’s a market for a cheaper alternative: same degree, similar product, but no displacement costs?

      Postgraduate students who can complete their degrees remotely. We know that our own PG students struggle significantly with the costs associated with moving to South Africa from other African countries.

    1. Our company is remote-first and will always be open to employees to work anywhere in the U.S. (or the occasional trip abroad). We made this decision with a great deal of intention because we believe creating and nurturing a remote culture is a key to inclusion.

      As we've been adjusting to the pandemic and going remote, I have been thinking about the differences between

      • [[remote first]]
