This is the title of the workshop we will run at ALT-C 2013 next week. In this workshop we will share the work we have been doing on drawing footprints of emergence and encourage people to draw their own footprints. Here is an example of a footprint
The footprint above shows that for this participant the learning experience in OLDsMOOC was very open, to the point of being chaotic for some aspects of the learning experience, but that opportunities for self-correction, negotiated outcomes and identity development were more limited.
We are now so familiar with the process of drawing footprints, that it is sometimes difficult to remember all the stages we went through to get here.
We would be interested in your first impressions of the use of footprints of emergence for investigating learning in complex learning environments.
