Learning to work out loud

I have long been fascinated by the work of John Stepper in Working Out Loud and have been thinking long and hard about realising the benefits… and challenges!…. of articulating and refining my thinking and practice in a public space. More recently I have been inspired by Jane Bozarth’s excellent book Show Your Work. Though lacking the courage to begin in earnest I have been lurking in the shadows, reading, reflecting and learning from other’s work.

Now, as I begin to study “Openness and Innovation in E-learning” at the Open University, I am presented with the opportunity to explore and experiment. My intent is to push my personal boundaries as I progress through this 30 week journey and to develop “working out loud” to become just the ways things are done around here.
