We think of BEtreat as a yearly time to take stock of our learning, see how the field has evolved, and make progress on cutting-edge issues. We do it for ourselves and we invite you to join us.
BEtreat is the only event of its kind as far as we know. It offers a unique set of professional development opportunities.
Hear what participants in BEtreat ’10 had to say:
|“Not a doubt that the visit to BEtreat10 was invaluable in sparking ideas and advancing the BRC learning agenda, and CoP as effective mechanism for learning.”|
|– Femi Nzegwu (f2f participant), The British Red Cross, UK.|
|“It was very intense and exhausting, but a continual element of fun ran through it and an increasing sense of family and community was fostered… The setup is a surprise – transition of a 2 bedroom bungalow to a collaboration lab — I’m now more willing to experiment; to think about transfer to my practice.”|
|– Rita Harrison (f2f participant), Executive Networks, USA|
|“Try out the online-participation – it is an amazing experience. Very exhausting and a lot of fun. A new learning experience. And please let´s get in touch afterwards so we can share our experience.”|
|– Lotte Krisper-Ullyett (online participant), Vienna, Austria.|
|“As someone who does much of my work online, I took a lot of valuable lessons away from BETreat, not only about how to foster communities of practice, but how to do this online … I felt that the ways in which you had the group take responsibility for including us – carrying us around from place to place – and allowing us to be reliant on others to be included, was a very powerful way of embedding emotion if not into artifact design, then artifact use and learning design. It was so touching to be carried around from place to place as if the computer were the living and breathing me and made me feel very connected to everyone in Grass Valley.”|
|– Sam Johnston (online participant), Center for Social Innovation, Boston, MA, US.|
