About the Fora

Getting Started

  • You should have received your login credentials via email. If not, please contact Kenny.
  • To log in, click on “Log In” in the upper left hand corner of the browser window, which will take you to a window where you can enter your username and password.
  • If you are logging into the site for the first time, click on your name, which will appear in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window, in the drop down menu, select “Profile” and then from the second menu “Edit.” That will take you to your profile page. Once there, click on “Settings,” which is the last item (from left to right) in the top menu bar just below your picture (or where your picture will appear when you upload an image), and enter a new password. Please do not forget to change your password when you login for the first time.

Posting in the Fora

The fora will serve a central role both as we prepare for the workshop and as we develop and refine perspectives that emerge from our discussions. In the context of the former, participants will contribute three posts to the fora: one for each of the two sessions in which they will lead the discussion and one with observations about the exercise. The posts will then provide the basis for discussion during the workshop. As you will see a forum can accommodate any number of topics. We have created a topic in each of the fora where you will post your observations as replies to the initial post.

  • The links to the forum for each session under the “Fora” item in the main menu will take you to the forum page where you will find the topic of the discussion. The title of the topic corresponds to the title or topic of each session as outlined in the agenda. To post your observations click on the link to the topic and submit them as a reply to the initial post. (Of course, you are welcome to create new topics of discussion if you wish, but please post your observations about the main topic for the session as replies to the first topic.)
  • The link to the discussion forum for each session in the agenda will actually take you to the topic of discussion, where you should post your observations as replies.
