Communities – a big reason for being here

Filed under: Uncategorized — wroljim @ 3:48 am

The discussion today on how to build a community and the need to enhance the one being built in Unworkshop 2 clearly identifies on of my main reasons for being in the workshop.  This common experience of being in this workshop together becomes the thread that ties us together. The sharing of the common experience  becomes enough of a common thread for any of the participants to contact their peers with questions and asking for information.  As Jay asks "How can we make it stronger?" he has "given birth" to this community through the offering of the workshop and continues to strengthen and grow the community through making us, the members of the community, responsible to ourselves and to each other for our learning. 

 In any community the members take on different roles, build different relationships with peers, and their involvement changes with time and commitments.  To force the members of this community to meet certain requirements goes against the very  format of the workshop.

  1. I agree, forcing members to do anything really goes against the notion of community. People have to want to be active; each in his or her own way.
