I’m reading through the backlog of posts from the community from my two week absence.  And of course I missed the purposefully conversation heavy weeks!  Looking overall the in depth conversations everyone is having is really a nice reminder of the educational opportunities that conversations can be.

Of course it’s also a reminder of my own tendency towards solitary pursuits and lends a bit of an insular feel to my advocacy for “owned” spaces.  While this ownership is important, I think that it can also have a negative impact–it can isolate and actually push students (and people in general, or course) apart if we, as instructors are not careful.

Well, I’m off to comment!

    Hi Brandon,
    I usually get to my POT activities only once or twice a week, so I always have a backlog also. And then I chase rabbit trails also, clicking on links that take me to new places and commenting and reading comments, so I sometimes don’t do my own posting.

    I have really enjoyed the synchronous sessions I’ve joined on Facebook, in Illuminate. Try to jump in if you can work it out in your schedule.
