      Think through what is "handling power".

    2. Just as a classroom infrastructure is shaped and guided by the pedagogical philosophy of the teacher, so too are digital pedagogical spaces structured and designed to foster specific forms of user engagement.

      Taking a pedagogical approach to digital infrastructure allows for the possibility for humanizing the digital spaces we create for learning.

    1. Explanations of observable phenomena began to shift away from primarily shamanistic and empirical viewpoints, and a new epistemological framework emerged that allowed for a more comprehensive and innovative interpretation of the natural world than had been previously known.

    1. invaluableexposuretothe“humancreator”thatisbehindeveryidea.

      I could not agree more. Often new academics or students place scholars on a "pedestal" VC, breaks any barriers created by the illusion of hierarchy.

    1. the


    2. Name of the workshop?

      What is the name of the workshop you attended?

      And I would add a place to add "other". Unless that is already inherent to how this will be deployed.

    3. What would you recommend to improve the workshop?

      I recommend placing any short answer questions at the end - there is research that states you will get better answers when participants have conceived of all you ask in the multiple choice and can then take this opportunity to expand.

    4. Here at Yale Center for Teaching and Learning we are always looking to improve the quality of our workshops and strive to deliver the best possible service. Your feedback will enable us to identify any areas in need of improving.

    1. there is always an aspect of coercion to design

      The word "coercion" has historically been a negative word to me - to be coerced is to go against one's will. Many negative examples are presented here - what are positive examples of coercion in design? I lived in Portland, OR for many years and volunteered with the City Repair project whose mission is to "place make". Here are examples of PDX intersections "repairs": http://www.cityrepair.org/intersection-repair-examples/

    1. it’s this pattern of a work reacting to itself and its environment that gives it the spark of life.

      I look forward to this new frame to my design work allowing one to capture this precious moment when a design pattern reacts to itself... or perhaps it is too elusive to in fact "capture"?

    2. If you find them as powerful as I do the context will eventually present itself.

      I appreciate the invitation to read for emergence & discovery
