Participatory Partnership 8: Build on Success

Participatory Partnership Tip 8: Build on Success- This tip is courtesy of John Kotter and Kotter’s Change Method. Too often, we don’t build on success. We move on to “the next thing.” But celebrating success is a key to imprint practice. At The College of William and Mary, whenever a student successfully defends their dissertation, they ring a bell of announcement and celebration. Figure out a way to ring the digital bell and give high fives for successful achievement.

Learning Technologies Podcast-May 17-Participatory Partnerships 1: Meet and Greet

 

Participatory Partnerships Tip 1: Meet and Greet to Begin Great Partnerships. Start with the familiarity of a Meet and Greet away from your workspace where your learners/faculty/students/colleagues work and learn. For online partnerships, this means, meet at a time and in a meeting space platform that is convenient for others.

Podcast Transcript:

3:01

Welcome to the Learning Technologies Podcast. Today’s topic is Participatory Partnerships. I’m designing a training series for university professors and business leaders on the value of public sphere pedagogy and participatory partnerships. For the next few weeks of this summer, you will see ten specific tips on research-based best practices for creating your own participatory partnerships. Although my training will focus on partnerships between university professors and business leaders, participatory partnerships have many, many couplings. They can include connections between community businesses, community outreach groups, K-12 schools and the neighborhood community, K-12 schools and outreach groups at the  city, local, and state level, partnerships between school and community, school and family, students and teachers, classrooms families in the U.S. and global counterparts.

For all types of Participatory Partnerships, start with the familiarity of a Meet and Greet away from the workspace of your team of learners/faculty/students/colleagues. This does not necessarily mean that the meeting has to cost a lot of money and be off-site, retreat-style (although who wouldn’t love to meet offsite in Hawaii!). Meet and Greet away from your workspace can mean outside, in front of your building, in a conference room down the hall, at your onsite coffee cart, or perhaps in the commons area or park across the street. For online partnerships, what is important is to meet at a time that is convenient for everyone or almost everyone and that the meeting occur in a meeting space platform that is convenient for as many of your partnership participants as possible. For both onsite and online participatory partnerships, record your meeting and make the recording available for those who were unable to meet and for all of us who need reminders of what was discussed. This is the first Participatory Partnerships Tip: Meet and Greet to Begin Great Partnerships.

Podcast Note: If you find this podcast after the summer of 2017, you will find all the Participatory Partnerships listed under the content tag, “Participatory Partnerships” at this blog.
