Event Description

Harvesting & Collective Sense-Making: Moving from Dialogue to Action & Learning from Beehive Productions on Vimeo.

Join us: Chris Corrigan, Amy Lenzo, Rowan Simonsen, David Sibett, Kelvy Bird, Zulma Patarroyo and Monica Nissen for this training on harvesting.
  • How do we learn, know and make sense of the world?
  • What theory informs our practice?
  • What are the different kinds of harvesting that happen throughout a process?
  • How to work with metaphor and Visual Sensemaking when harvesting?
  • How do we choose methods to meet the needs of a process?
  • Harvesting strategy in the design and choice of practices

The ongoing need as individuals to further our practice and evolve our skills to continue to learn and apply new tools & tips, stories & successful approaches.

The overall need for a sophisticated theory of harvesting to give direction and meaning to our practice, beginning with a deeper understanding about how we learn, know, and make sense of the world around us - as individuals and in

The need to be part of an effective Community of Practice - we learn most effectively with each other when we are sharing stories, designing together and asking for help.

With the recognition that we have much to learn from and with each other, we extend a warm invitation to join us!

I'm interested in this course, but not clear on the times it is being offered.  It would appear in the beginning of the screen that it starts at 9am, but then it says 11:30 on June 16th.  Is this PST?  Please send along the times.  Thanks,
