Hi Folks

A step into the darker reaches of beyond maybe.  Just joined as a result of a realisation that the research tool I have been looking for is already out there.

My PhD topic is seeking to be able to use mimetic theory ( a theory of desire and scapegoating) to develop a systems model of workplace bullying.  I had been struggling to see how I could pull this together and was reading Bojer et als 'Mapping Dialogue' and came across the World Cafe.

Bucky visualized the whole…

Establishing Partnerships Between School and Public Libraries to Implement Common Core

Join other school and public librarians in their effort to collaborate and learn about "common core" standards. What ideas do you have about ideas to promote partnerships between the school and the public libraries? What has work in your school library or public library.

From a lack of social trust, climate change, poverty, pollution, species extinction, institutional failure and our inability to continue consuming at current levels, the change that needs to take place on a global scale is massive, compounding and complex.
