This section reprises the “What’s Next” steps in all the previous patterns, offering another view on the project Roadmap in its emergent form.
We intend to revise and extend the patterns and methods of peeragogy to make it a workable model for learning, inside or outside of institutions.
If we sense that something needs to change about the project, that is a clue that we might need to record a new pattern, or revise our existing patterns.
▶ Reduce, reuse, recycle
We’ve converted our old pattern catalog from the Peeragogy Handbook into this paper, sharing it with a new community and gaining new perspectives. Can we repeat that for other things we’ve made?
▶ Carrying capacity
Making it easy and fruitful for others to get involved is one of the best ways to redistribute the load. This often requires skill development among those involved; compare the pattern.
▶ A specific project
We need to build specific, tangible “what’s next” steps and connect them with concrete action. Use the Scrapbook to organize that process.
We have prototyped and deployed a visual “dashboard” that people can use to get involved with the ongoing work in the project. Let’s improve it, and match it with an improved interaction design for peeragogy.org.
Identifying and fostering new and new working groups is a task that can help make the community more robust. This is the time dimension of spin off projects described in Reduce, reuse, recycle.
A more detailed (but non-limiting) “How to Get Involved” walk-through or “DIY Toolkit” would be good to develop. We can start by listing some of the things we’re currently learning about.
After pruning back our pattern catalog, we want it to grow again: new patterns are needed. One strategy would be to “patternize” the rest of the Peeragogy Handbook.
