#opened12 Reading Group – sign up here!

Following on from discussions around #opened12 and David Kernohan’s suggestion of a parrallel between Newman‘s approach to education and theories of Bildung, I’ve a mind to see whether there’s interest in a virtual reading group. We could start with The Idea of a University.

Some people have already expressed an interest on Twitter…

If you’re also interested, add your details to the comments below and I’ll get back to you all with some sort of plan!

Other things we could read that have been mentioned to me over the last couple of days…

Bateson: ‘Steps to an Ecology of Mind
Orlikowski: ‘Improvising Organizational Transformation over Time:
A Situated Change Perspective
