Conversations with fellow scholars are so valuable. How can we continue them?
There is a wealth of knowledge and wisdom amongst the “launch-padders” (I mean the scholars, the launchpad team, people in our wider networks, and everyone at the unconference).
We’re looking at inter-related issues from a wonderful range of perspectives. We all bring our own stories and experiences of recognising problems or needs and trying to address them. The fascination and value of those stories isn't just "what" we're doing (the outcomes or services that interest us) but "how" we’re doing it (our steep learning curves, the processes we go through, the blind alleys we’ve been down, the short cuts we’ve discovered, barriers impossible to climb over, sources of help, the systems we‘ve developed to help us be effective innovators, etc).
I find that having conversations with fellow launch-padders, can be a rich learning experience - a mixture of information exchange, insights and knowledge creation. Let’s explore how we can continue to talk and learn from each other.
