Emerge was an innovative, 28 month, user-centred, investigation-led, project, funded by the JISC and guided by the principles of appreciative inquiry.. The aim is to support the formation of an "effective and sustainable community of practice” around the Users and Innovation Development Model , using Web2.0 technologies ( def 1 , def 2 ). Emerge is the support project for the JISC Capital Programme , Users and Innovation strand

Developing projects in a context where there is awareness of the wider activity in a field and an understanding of the alignments and gaps in that field will lead to better projects being developed. By using community development processes and social networking the general quality of educational (learning) technology development projects may be improved, bringing benefits not just to the JISC but more widely to all sectoral funding agencies and stakeholders.

Self-selected (autonomous, self-directed) individuals build networks to meet broader social objectives beyond the ‘daily-me’ ... Networked individuals can move across, undermine, and transgress boundaries of existing institutions. This provides the basis for pro-social networks: neither personal nor institutional. These self-selected, internet enabled, networked individuals often break from existing organisational or institutional networks that are themselves being transformed in Internet space... The ability that the Internet affords individuals to network beyond institutional arenas reinforces communicative power . (Dutton 2008, 5 th Estate, 5-6 my paraphrase ) A Connected Commons

A model of software development adapted to community development transformative, investigative approach Where we started

Phases 1 Community formation Support to understand processes of user engagement, undertake user engagement activities, and work through a peer review process 2 Project support using community development  processes and social networking 3 Benefits realisation to widen the impact of the projects, build capacity , synthesise knowledge, experience and outputs

Phases

1 Community formation

Support to understand processes of user engagement, undertake user engagement activities, and work through a peer review process

2 Project support

using community development  processes and social networking

3 Benefits realisation

to widen the impact of the projects, build capacity , synthesise knowledge, experience and outputs

Radical, user-centred, Freirian approach to community formation activities authentic to the participants’ cultural context … participants in the proto-projects, projects and the community of practice are themselves a user group working in a user centred environment, modelling the user engagement development cycle and applying asset-based community development processes It is an actor network, not a software platform or an institution

Visibility, connectivity and discovery?

Or … obscurity, isolation and at times wandering lost.

The form and patterns of interaction, which develop across a community over time, cannot be predetermined

The use of participatory social media is multi-modal

The articulation between people and software is not just a question of interface design (though that is crucial)

The effective use of Web2.0 depends essentially on human networks.

For institutions to what extent are they comfortable with ceding certain amounts of control to individuals? to what extent are they, as established communities, willing to cede control to new communities? For individuals the principal issue is to what extent do they subordinate their autonomy and self-direction to any community? And, then how much do they subordinate and to which communities? Questions inclusion, exclusion and identity

For individuals

the principal issue is to what extent do they subordinate their autonomy and self-direction to any community?

And, then how much do they subordinate and to which communities?

Of course there were also those who though that if it wasn't hurting, it wasn't working.
