We will roll out out next book exploring learning in practice on August 23 discussing Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time, Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin. Our discussion focus will be the same as the past two books - what can we "learn" about learning from Mortenson's story? What can we learn about the design process and developing solutions to the problems? What can we learn about organizational change?
We will use HootCourse albeit as a different "course number." To access this chat go here - http://hootcourse.com/course/636/. Please bring other ideas, issues and questions from your reading via Twitter or comments. Oh, and have fun.
Thanks for participating and thanks to Jane Bozarth (@JaneBozarth) for her leadership.

The "Final Cut" chapter (p. 187) was so full of comments on learning that I don't even know where to start asking about it. Feel free to take add more questions.
Q10. p. 198 "In most cases, it wasn't technology that failed [but Dr. didn't] consider the correct diagnosis in the 1st place." Problem for L&D?
Q11. How can we help learners learn to better navigate decisionmaking, particularly when precise 'correct' answers may not exist?
More questions on Saturday; book wrap-up by Monday.
