"promo" opportunity, keeping in mind the caveat:

Note that practical, actionable posts tend to do best. Self-promotional pitches will not be accepted.

Worth checking if we can fit something in here (?).

+Alex Gagnon: a call for more definition of the "paragogue" role.

"It is emblematic that there is no name for the position between the experts and non-experts or between professionals and the uninitiated, other than the "client", "patient", "pupil", and other labels of institutional roles.  What should private-network members be called when they help the professional?"

-- A note on page 10 of "Dialogical meetings in social networks" by Seikkula and Arnkil.

Somehow the painter Paul Cézanne comes to mind. He wasn't really an academic I don't think you could say.. he just liked to paint. He took his easel and his canvas and materials outside and painted in nature.. he probably painted around the house.. set up still life compositions and painted them.

He was dedicated, but he wasn't trying to "change the world" and he also wasn't trying to "inaugurate modern art".. He was just doing his thing.

To me there is a great HUMANITY in the work of Cézanne.. Having seen it myself firsthand, I was most shocked by his humanity.. It actually brought me to tears.. Not that he was the "father of modern art" or that he was this "great painter".. I saw him as a basic human being, just like I was.. and that's what struck me most about his painting.

He was a normal every day individual like me and you and everybody else. There was no "cult of Cézanne" that I know of.

Yet he DID change the world, he DID inaugurate modern art almost singlehandedly.. he WAS a major precursor to more than a century of innovations in the arts.. that's maybe the paradox of paradoxes.. You set out to just do your humble everyday thing, and by accident you change the world.. you were just dedicated to your craft, and to me that's the paragogical arts right there..

In the weekly Peeragogy hangout, we've been puzzling over how to "git" people up to speed on GitHub. I found this compilation of tutorials on Flipboard and hope to try one of them soon. +Joe Corneli+Charles Danoff​

Hi +Charlotte Pierce, sounds good.  My one comment is - don't get distracted by potential complexity at the start - and with Git there is a lot of potential complexity.

First goal: Create a test repository - Github will help you with that.

... But you will also need some software preliminaries, and I can't give much advice regarding Windows [but maybe you've already got that working?], except have a look at https://msysgit.github.io/ and https://github.com/msysgit/msysgit/wiki and see if that helps. On Linux there's a commandline program "git" readily available and that's what I use.

Second goal: add a document to the repository.

Third goal: edit it, and commit your changes.

Next task: Make a "fork" of the Peeragogy Handbook and make some change to the documents there, commit them to your version of the repository, and send a pull request.

[We could go through all of this in a group session... as for doing that vs working on v3 stuff, I don't know what the priority is - if we work on Git stuff, we could include our notes on that into v3 of the handbook...]

How to participate  - 
 
 
Great line from Writer Unboxed...

"The next time you receive pages of editorial notes, don’t reach for the tissues or a stiff drink. Don’t renew your insurance license. Instead take a deep breath and repeat the words my ballerina once said to me: “This person must really love the book if they spent so much time with it.”"

I only took ballet for a year or two as a young girl, and I don't remember the corrections, but I think this kinds of training is important across multiple disciplines. For me, it came from other sports (I was a softball fast pitch pitcher) and also high school writing. My mom and dad would carefully review and help me edit essays and other assignments until they polished. I learned early on that criticism isn't bad, and shouldn't (necessarily) be taken personally. In fact, I often enjoy the process, seeing it as a way to improve and get better.

I'll admit, there are times when I get personally invested in some piece of advice that I think is out of line. No one is perfect. But rather than immediately reacting (at least to the person giving he critique) I take a step back and a deep breath, maybe vent to my husband, and then try to see what they're REALLY trying to say. Often, their criticism stems from another problem that I can agree needs to be fixed.

Anyway, that's how I handle editing and criticism. How do you do it? Does seeing criticism or editing notes as a means of improving help you handle the stress of the rewrite?

Today’s guest is Kim Bullock whose novel-in-progress (working title The Oak Lovers) has already been receiving praise. Historical fiction author Stephanie Cowell says this, "I’ve seldom read a nove...

A video by my Aunt +Miriam Corneli about her language teaching work in Nepal.  Great dynamic video with some cool peeragogy concepts embedded to!   Attn.  +Charles Danoff +Elaine Bucheger and +Lee Skallerup Bessette this is interesting as a quite neat example of teacher training.

Cheerio.

Howard, Charlotte, and I were also aiming to spread the good word about the freely available Peeragogy Handbook, our collaboratively written guide to peer learning, created together with about 30 other co-authors, and now entering its 3rd yearly edition. According to our enthusiastic and inclusive point of view, the precedents for this project range from Plato’s Academy to the Peer-2-Peer University, from Reggio Emilia to the Royal Society, and from Lev Vygotsky to Silicon Valley. But of course, we’re biased.
