For some staff trying new things and experimenting is incredibly risky. The evaluative, metric driven processes in HE make staff risk averse. “I better not try that in case it doesn’t work”. We are very reluctant to upset students. Rightly so, there’s nothing more frustrating or damaging to learning than a poor session. We need to make it clear that risk taking is encouraged. That trying new things is an expectation not something to be avoided. We need to stop punishing staff when things don’t quite go as planned.

Over the past month or so directions, locations and travel seem to be on mind a lot. Not just because it’s coming up to holiday season, but also because things have been a bit unsettled at work.

One aspect that often can be missed is one of capability, specifically digital capability. Digital capability is not just about having the right digital skills or literacy, but having the capability to make the right and appropriate choices when it comes to digital and understanding when to seek support or the right training.

So I started thinking about the original question “What would a learning space look like if you designed it in networked culture, where identity is more important than role?” The uber empowered workspace describes a set of attributes that would certainly benefit a worker that had a developed identity, it refers to “tours of duty” and “gigs” and “freelancing” and the underpinning technology is personal and personalised, and leveraging the most out of analytics and big data.

Students, novices, anyone trying things out and wanting to see what happens might well value the freedom that comes from anonymity, the ability to try something on and discard it without it scuffing the identity that everyone already knows them by. Anonymity can facilitate creativity, risk-taking, a feeling of safety.

Anonymity as come to the forefront of the debates around digital with the emergence of apps such as Yik Yak, Nearby and Whisper.
