Coming Soon – A Contribution not a Prediction for 2015

2015 has arrived and there’s a plethora of posts offering predictions, Top 10s, Year of _____, biggest trends etc etc etc. I’ve decided to do something different and talk about my contribution to the future rather than spruiking what it could be.

The Content Lifecycle

As part of some work on digital publishing I thought I’d put together a content lifecycle to help explain the implementation and gaps in technology, workflows and practices.

My Reclaim Project

I’ve spoken about this idea of the Digital Self a couple of times now but it’s something I believe in, and something I have to practice […]

Change comes in cycles & Innovation in waves

Does innovation occur the […]

The Changing Context of Learning

In 2013 Charles Sturt University, my workplace, decided to develop a new project aimed at creating a space and forum to think through some of the issues, challenges, problems and opportunities we face as an institution. The Think Pieces Project was born and I was asked to contribute, which is a real honour. Initially I […]

Adaptive Digital Publishing – Current Work & Ideas

This is my first post in an attempt to “work out loud” i.e. to be more open in my practice rather than just my output. It’s an attempt to log my current ideas and concepts around a topic to frame it, share it and reflect back at a later date. One of the things I’ve […]
