Add Examples or Tutorials

As a way to both connect and celebrate, conduct a Curiosity Conversation with a peer. Perhaps there is someone whose work you find inspiring or somebody who has talked about a hobby that interests you, or someone who teaches something you want to know more about. Or maybe there is a CLMOOC-er who just seems fascinating, funny, and like an all-around decent human being. Whatever attracts you to the person, make some time to connect and learn more about him or her. You can conduct this conversation via Google Hangout or Skype, or by recording a phone conversation, or even via email, Twitter, Voxer, Google Slides or another favorite social media platform that allows you to  record the conversation.

Once you’ve had your conversation, consider ways of sharing what you learned: what were the highlights? the questions raised? the ideas worth amplifying? Try some audio editing, via a tool like Soundtrap. Post the audio to a platform like Soundcloud. Or craft a visual/poster/postcard of your favorite statements. Or create a short video to accompany the audio. Or all of the above!

Here are some helpful directions I’ve used in my teaching: Curiosity Conversation Directions, Curiosity Conversation Editing & Blogging
