The March online version worked well enough so this sort of approach may continue. But Phonic FM has the offer of space at the Bike Shed Theatre during August so Will Pollard has suggested the 12th for a day of looking at radio in the context of #mtw3. One aim will be to come up with better sound and video links. Content from other places and times will be included in the mix.
There is a Google Doc that includes a sort of structure. this may change depending on who turns up and wants to talk bout each topic.
1. John Burgoyne talk as a sort of keynote. Already on YouTube as a complete hour or in several topics. Assume most people have already seen this but there is still much to discuss.
2. Design Science could be a theory to link learning and management. Diana Laurillard has written on teaching as a design science. There has also been discussion in the British Journal of Management. Also I find there is less established curation than with topics such as systems or quality. So casual video and a chat show approach are more easily accepted.
3. At the time of the second Management Theory at Work conference Bronwen Rees was based at Crucible Research, offering a form of alchemy. She is now at Incubatio, there are links to articles on the website, including one about ethical enquiry. I don't think she could be at the event but we could trace papers over recent years, several open online.
4. Radio as case study is a link with Phonic FM and others, some are online only already. There is speculation that over the summer there will be announcements about forms of online radio, including possibly YouTube and Apple. How can an FM studio adapt? How to fit in with social media? There will be more about this on the Hello Spiders blog. It is the topic on which most news is expected.
5. The first Management Theory at Work closed with a look at relevance for universities, suggesting that critique was a more suitable role. In July there will be a meeting about the website - www.criticalmanagement.org - intended for feedback and possible changes. This could be seen as a quality process if quality ideas were withing a critique scope. Possibly some form of design science would be considered.
6. The video clip on publishing has had by far the most views on YouTube. Any conference concludes with looking at what to do with the papers/ text as well as now the sound and video. Print publishing is not changing as fast as music and radio but similar issues crop up.
What I notice is that there is less and less space for virtual worlds such as Twinity and Second Life. During March I thought there would be a spend on a virtual studio so we could do continuity sitting beside several screens. This has just become bits of text on Twitter and other places. If there is a shift towards subscriptions for content I hope the virtual world ideas come back. Nothing against a day of face2face of course.
