I‘m really pleased to share my latest open access publication – a jointly authored chapter with Amy Collier (Middlebury College, US) – which defines and explores the concept of ‘not-yetness’.
Ross, J. and Collier, A. (2016). Complexity, mess and not-yetness: teaching online with emerging technologies. In G. Veletsianos (ed), Emergence and Innovation in Digital Learning: Foundations and Applications. Athabasca University Press.
You can download the chapter directly and for free from http://www.aupress.ca/index.php/books/120258 (go to the “Free PDF” tab).
Amy and I have been writing and speaking about not-yetness for a couple of years now. Here are some related blog posts and other materials:
- Speculative method in digital education research (Jen’s journal article in Learning, Media and Technology)
- Mess in Online Education (Amy and Jen’s keynote lecture at Emerging Technologies for Online Learning, Dallas, 2014)
- For whom, for what? Not-yetness and challenging the “stuff” of open education. Amy and Jen’s talk at OpenEd15, Vancouver, 2015.
- ‘Not-yetness’ – research and teaching at the edges of digital education (Jen’s blog post)
- a series of not-yetness blog posts by Amy:
We are just finishing up a paper based on our OpenEd15 talk, and will be submitting this soon – stay tuned!
