The next (scary!) step for me: building a formal community

Résultat de recherche d'images pour By Jennifer Polk. How is it that I am more than three years into this job and I still feel like a n00b?

How to Build an Engaged Event Community

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. How to Build an Engaged Event Community
DoubleDutch, 2016/04/13

Relatively light (11 page PDF) but generally useful guide on the use of social media to support an event. The publishers produce event apps, so they have an interest in this, but it doesn't appear until the last page.

De la nécessité de créer des communautés apprenantes

http://blog.educpros.fr/francois-fourcade/files/2013/10/blog-f-fourcade.jpgSur le blog Educpros de François Fourcade. Le terme de « communauté » a parfois mauvaise réputation, trop vite associé au « communautarisme » et au « repli sur soi ». Dans la tradition sociologique, le terme est associé aux « stigmates de la « vie naturelle » » (1) : « volonté organique » (Tönnies), « solidarité mécanique » (Durkheim), « activité sociale traditionnelle » (Weber).
