This post is in response to the Online Instruction for Open Educators MOOC.

This week we were asked to reflect on the changes that are happening due to the abundance of information, and Rhizomatic Education.

I am glad that I was introduced to Dave Cormier through this section of the class. These writings have given me terminology and a foundation for my feelings about education that I didn’t know how to accurately express. Rhizomatic Education is now a term that I will use when describing learning activities that take place in non-formal education.

The readings and discussions this week have allowed me to reflect on how I use this pedagogy in my classes, and have given a foundation for how I I can move forward in creating a more open learning environment. Today I met with a colleague from a different school about presenting a series of workshops for a club of which he is the advisor. The discussions we have had this week have caused me to think about changing the way that I have been planning on presenting the materials to the students. I am trying to figure out how I can give them a starting point and just enough direction so that they can find the information that they need, and then a way to use what they find in the workshops.
