Becoming the LinkedIn University

Professional recognition and identity are important to all staff and students. How each of us fosters and maintains our professional identity is problematic. In this Social Digital Age maintenance of good reputation requires a fluent life-wide engagement with professional profiling as exemplified in the idea of a life-wide “LinkedIn University”.

  8. 8. We are at the centre of our learning “A learning ecology is defined as the set of contexts found in physical or virtual spaces that provide opportunities for learning. Each context is comprised of a unique configuration of activities, material resources, relationships, and the interactions that emerge from them.” Barron (2006, p.195)
  9. 9. “An environment that fosters and supports the formation of communities and networks. If ecologies are the spaces of learning, then networks are the structures of learning. Networks do not occur in a vacuum. Knowledge is networked and distributed, and the act of learning is the creation and navigation of networks.” Siemens 2008 Ecologies and networks
