Chris Kimble :: Blog :: Mea culpa - mea maxima culpa.

October 19, 2007

Dear all,

I feel that I must prefix my first post with an apology - I came across this project some time ago and thought "the creation of a sustainable community of practice (CoP) that will develop and exploit new emergent technologies for use in educational settings" - that's for me!  ... and then did nothing about it.  I will try to make more of a positive contribution - starting now.

For those of you who are within travelling distance of York, there is going to be a seminar on SNA (Social Network Analysis) entitled "Discovering and Analysing Social Networks through the Mining of Logs from Collaborative Tools" on the 5th of November.

The seminar will be presented by Laurence Lock Lee, who has worked in this area for some time (he wrote a chapter in a book on CoPs I edited a few years back).  The focus is not directly on Education, but if you are interested in the application of SNA, I am sure that this will prove to be a practical and informative talk.

For those who want to know more, there is a web site. I have also uploaded a .pdf file.

The seminar is absolutely free (I can't promise a firework display, but I might be able to offer coffee and biscuits) so if you are going to come, could you mail me and let me know so I can attempt to plan things in advance.
