What is culture? Textbooks: Small c Food, Fairs, Facts, Folklore Faculty of Arts: Big C Canonized literature, art, music & history Anthropology: Process

Institutions, processes and shared beliefs that make a society run New Fields: Discourse Points of Viewing; Multiple Perspectives What is culture?

Webs of Significance "Believing, with Max Weber, that man is an animal suspended in webs of significance he himself has spun, I take culture to be those webs, and the analysis of it to be therefore not an

experimental science in search of law but an interpretive one in search of meaning" Clifford Geertz, 1973 The Interpretation of Cultures Diffusion of Innovations "the process by which an innovation is

communicated through certain channels over time among the members of a social system. Rogers, E. (1995). Diffusion of Innovations (5th Edition). New York: Free Press. Diffusion of Innovations Rogers Diffusion of Innovation Framework

Factors Affecting Diffusion Compatibility Triability Complexity Advantage Observability Rogers Diffusion of Innovation Framework

Compatibility The degree to which the innovation is consistent with current values and perspectives of the users. Rogers Diffusion of Innovation Framework Triability Trying out a new approach on a limited, trial basis

to minimize risk and allow for experimentation. Rogers Diffusion of Innovation Framework Complexity Innovations that are easier to understand and use will be adopted quicker than more complex innovations that are unsupported.

Rogers Diffusion of Innovation Framework Advantage The degree to which the innovation is perceived as better than a current situation. Rogers Diffusion of Innovation Framework

Observability The more observable or visible an innovation is, the more likely it will diffuse. 2 Case Studies: ePortfolio Cultures 1. Vancouver, BC, Canada 1. San Francisco, California, USA

To support growth, need: Sustainable, Scalable, Reliable, Effective Solutions Limit # of technical solutions &

integrate into current technical architecture Centralize, share knowledge on teaching & learning best practices ePortfolio

Foster the culture: language, beliefs, processes, signs, artifacts, Diffuse the innovation Reach the tipping point. The three rules of epidemics that Gladwell identifies are: the Law of the Few, the Stickiness Factor, and the Power of Context. http://www.wikisummaries.org/The_Tipping_Point http://www.wikisummaries.org/The_Tipping_Point Connectors are individuals who have ties in many different realms and act as conduits between them, helping to engender connections, relationships, and cross-fertilization that otherwise might not have ever occurred. Mavens are

people who have a strong compulsion to help other consumers by helping them make informed decisions. Salesmen are people whose unusual charisma allows them to be extremely persuasive in inducing others buying decisions and behaviors. What is an ePortfolio? Intentional & Integrated Learning

Reflection Texts & Resources Challenges Educational Culture change Faculty & student workload Teaching scrutiny by peers Validity of assessment method, artifacts

Challenges Technical Multiple campus solutions hard to support Costs for external subscriptions or internal development Hard to roll up results for accreditation from multiple technologies Web 2.0 solutions not accessible

Challenges Organizational Need unified, campus-wide support model Need institutional mandate, aligned with strategic mission, and $$ Need state-level support to integrate educational, employment and economic development objectives --no such luck in CA
