Networks... Michael Fullen
Great video about collaboration and networks. What are the qualities that make these successful.
I can see how the IES has potential and the risks around how this will become an imposed model and lack the flexibility to align with those that have the most similar needs and vision. It appears to be being driven by a top down accountability model which has been proven to be a focus that won't get results.
Being proactive, focused and purposeful about our needs and the opportunities that a learning network could present should be our focus. I suppose the difficulty lies in getting the stakeholders and fundholders to come to an agreement in what the model should look like and it purpose.
