Re: ID presentation on Activity Theory and ID presentation on Bandura:
I guess these two make me uneasy…I need to follow up on the reading/resource links for these approaches. They are of interest because they seemed to echo a theoretical framework for cultural studies, postcolonial studies etc in their earlier days – and consequently was referred to by contemporary artwork then (and now). What followed was much hand wringing about the implications of behavioral modification because of this ‘institutional/theoretical’ application to learning activity… not to mention the feminist discussion of the role of the consultant/mentor vs facilitator.
Re the Good/Bad Design presentations, I’m not sure where these are contributing except to point to the need for a design model like the one presented in the text- i.e. the need to continually revisit each phase.
