Oblique Strategies

Screen Shot 2015-09-05 at 11.31.14 PMI was fascinated to hear about Brian Eno’s Oblique Strategies cards, which I hadn’t known about before.  So then of course I really wanted some… but the first edition ones were about $1,500 and the latest edition seemed to be a while ago and they were pretty much $100++  on eBay.

So then I thought to google Oblique Strategies cards pdf and found these DIY cards – not sure who the blog owner is but they’re searchable publicly so…

Syllabus #CLMOOC

Then I thought, hey And courses I’m teaching – person centred planning for folks with disabilities, leadership and developmental studies through the lifespan – are really exciting too.  As usual I am thoughtful about how the support of folks with disabilities, one of the most lively, joy-provoking things to do, is made dull with old scripts based on needs and lacks and deficits…    and perhaps that’s the point?  If we were to really throw ourselves into the inspiration that folks with disabilities give us – I don’t mean by this a kind of disability-porn too-easy sleaziness – the way they and their families view the world and make it possible for all of us to view it in new ways that insist on our changing ourselves and the world so that it can belong to everyone.
And, if you are already working in the field you might want to check out Douglas College’s PLAR – Prior Learning and Recognition – because you can get credit for your experience that you can use towards a diploma or a degree.
Also I need to make a really great video.  You can see more of Mike’s work in Digital Ethnography here.

Relational Leadership Webinar Graphics

A lot of my work over the last few years, and my thesis (which led to many of the ideas in this presentation) has led me to the idea of relational leadership so I’ve been fascinated to discover Kenneth Gergen and the Taos Institute and its affiliates working hard to figure out what the new patterns and methods might be.  They recently hosted a series of conversations by webinar – still available to watch here – and I was able to get to a couple of them.   Now I want to graphically record all of them – such exciting thinking.
