Wanderings of a Liberating Structures Practitioner – Part 2 the practice

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 17:23:50 +0000

This second post will describe the Liberating Structures string used at the Fire Adapted Communities Network three day retreat in Ashland, Oregon earlier this month to demonstrate the application of LS for strategic planning in contexts that are portfolio based, complex and full of (good!) people, all mentioned in part 1 where it all started. The Fire Adapted […]



Wanderings of a Liberating Structures Practitioner – Part 1 3 Reasons

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 16:32:01 +0000

As readers of my blog may have noticed, I’ve mentioned Liberating Structures more and more over the past two years. I’ve used them extensively with clients, but I don’t often get the chance to write publicly about that work. The great folks at the Fire Adapted Communities Network gave me permission to share my process […]



Happy Holidays: Free Digital Versions of Digital Habitats!

Wed, 21 Dec 2016 15:38:04 +0000

It is hard to believe we finished “Digital Habitat: Stewarding technology for communities” back in 2009. 7 years later the book is still selling on Amazon (amazing! grateful!). Etienne Wenger, John D. Smith and I wrote the book to help you support your communities. Now we have a little solstice, holiday, year end present for […]

Can we role model graphic recording? Part 3 in the series

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 01:25:23 +0000

Background: This is the third of three posts about some recent visual experiences at the  7th Annual GFRAS Meeting in Limbe, Cameroon, where I was invited as their graphic recorder! As I noted in Part 1, it is a huge investment of resources – theirs and mine – to have me there for the meeting, so I […]

Can we learn graphic recording in 4 hours and actually DO something? YES! Part 1

I am the Immigrant to my Neighborhood Crows…

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 18:24:50 +0000

I have been intrigued by Seattle’s crows since I moved here in 1981. They attacked my sons walking to school during nesting season one year and I went out and told them “hey, I’m a mom too. Don’t bother my kids, and they won’t bother yours.” They stopped dive bombing the boys. Since then I’ve […]



What does “digital native” imply? Just sayin…

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 09:00:54 +0000

A quote worth sharing from my blog draft backlog… emphasis mine. Smash stereotypes and remember many roots of learning are social, even online! During two long-term studies, which looked at learners who had personal connected devices or were using a powerful online learning community, we found that many users struggled to operate the basic tools.
