Thank you for your post, Maha! As Laura mentioned in a tweet the themes of emergence we talked about in this hangout are all human qualities (“respect, gratitude, generosity, curiosity, flexibility” and so on) and you are pioneering that in your scholarship:)

I wanted to frame my involvement as an adult learner because (a) I’m thousands of miles away from the institution I’m affiliated with, so I’m not sure what affiliation really means in my context and (b) I believe that the real significance of open scholarship is in the ordinary, what we do in everyday practice. So scholarship doesn’t mean “formal academic practice” it can involve anyone interested in learning and teaching, just like you define it in edcontexts:)
