Work Out Loud Week

It’s Working Out Loud Week!

It’s Working Out Loud Week!

Working out loud can solve so many problems, from reducing duplication of effort, to reducing time spent looking for things,  to making the path of a new worker easier.  While you can certainly work out loud anytime, this week is set aside especially for promoting the idea and encouraging others to try. Simon Terry, Austen Hunter, and Jonathan Anthony are our hosts for  International Working Out Loud Week.

In support of International Working Out Loud week this week’s #lrnchat topic will be “Working Out Loud”.  And to help encourage you to work out loud, we’ll be raffling off a copy of Jane Bozarth’s Show Your Work: The Payoffs and How-Tos of Working Out Loud.

So do join us for #lrnchat this Thursday, November 10, 8:30-9:30 pm!

Friday, November 11,  12:30 pm AEDT

To Participate in the Raffle:

  1. Sometime this week create an example of working out loud. It could be a photo, a video clip, a screenshot, a paragraph of explanation. It could be a note of reflection, or a flow chart or process map. If this is new to you, as you go about your work this week think about who else might want to learn about something. Think about: how you organize a project, how you learned something, what you learned the hard way, what you’d do differently next time, or what’s one thing you wish you’d known before you started a new task or project. Check this Pinterest board for ideas of what we’re looking for.
  2. Before 9 pm ET this Thursday, November 10, tweet the item or a link to it to the @lrnchat account and include the #lrnchat and #wolweek hashtags. Be sure to do this so we’ll be certain to find your entry.
  3. We’ll make a list of all who’ve submitted an example of working out loud, will place the names in a box or other suitable vessel, and at 9:15 pm on Thursday (during #lrnchat) will, via live video, draw a name from said vessel. Name drawn gets a copy of Show Your Work: The Payoffs and How-Tos of Working Out Loud.
  4. You don’t have to be present to win but we’d love that, really.
