I am fortunate that this session takes place at 10 a.m. in Australia on Thursday morning. I have the whole day to reflect on the discussion. I am a keen gardener and the idea of a rhizome is of great interest! I discovered the Wikipedia stub on rhizome (philosophy) and the existence of a creative arts project.

It may be pushing the language of the first two weeks too far but I am intrigued by the links between the two elements air and earth. We are a digitally connected network that has a presence through our local rootedness. I have started to explore the contestability of connectivism in some of the blog posts but have spent a great deal of time thinking. I am very relaxed about the epistemological debate going on and realise that each of us will have a perspective grounded in our biography.
What a remarkable group of people on this course. It is Spring time here in Mongarlowe. I think the course is like my garden … blossoming through difference and sameness.
