The event at York was good - rich in the serendipity of contacts and connections and conversations, as ever; timely questions and challenges to shape and move the project on; a huge sense of awe and respect for how much everyone has achieved; the chance to renew and refresh existing connections - restorative for links within as well outwith the project. ...

Obligations to the Emerge CoP

January 15, 2009

Anyone else remember the Faustian pact when our project started which said we would not only participate in, but also host, a community event? (Not to mention the tricky question of those  Final Report and the Outputs - only joking, Lawrie) Well, we have been thinking about what we would like to spend time exploring with you and want ...

July 28, 2008

Just wondering whether people would routinely offer an incentive to people who have participated in their data collection in some way, and if so, what sort of incentive you could consider appropriate.  Recently, I have received two very handsome incentives - one cash, one a material object - but in each case I didn't know I would receive anything beforehand.  On one project ...
