Reading with the authors

November 8 - November 18

Reading workshop

Location: online
Dates: November 8 – 18

Talk with others and the authors as you read the book together and discuss what it means to you.

A collective reading of our new book:

Learning to make a difference:

value creation in social learning spaces

Workshop overview:

In this workshop, we will be reading our book published in October 2020. We’ll read the book together and discuss the main ideas of each section, including: how to put the ideas into practice, how to translate them into a language that will be understood in your own context, or how to use the book as part of a course.

Workshop outline:

The workshop is a mix of synchronous conversations (e.g., on Zoom) and asynchronous (e.g., in a discussion forum). We work as a whole group, in small groups, and on our own.

The workshop runs over two weeks. We hold four 90-minutes synchronous discussions from Tuesday to Friday each week with the whole group. The time for these sessions is:

– 8:00-9:30am PST (West Coast, US)
– 11:00-12:30am EST (East Coast, US)
– 16:00-17:30pm WET (UK/Portugal)
– 17:00-18:30pm CET (Europe)

Between an introductory session at the start and a reflection sesssion at the end, each session covers one of the six sections of the book:


  • Who is here?
  • What is the story behind this book?


  • The concept of social learning space: definition and significance
  • The perspective of value creation and agency:
  • Four social learning modes

The value-creation framework in the four learning modes:

  • Generating value: eight value-creation cycles
  • Translating value: flows, loops, and value-creation stories
  •  Framing value creation: aspirations and uncertainties
  • Evaluating social learning: accounting for effects and contribution


  • What is the significance of this book? What can we do with it?
  • Next steps.
