Tracking Progress:
Evaluate and track progress with the Karabirrdt by coloring completed tasks, checking them off the list and moving from dreaming into celebrating
Goals and Dream:
Re-connect with dreams, goals and objectives articulated in the beginning for direction, big picture and realization
Install feedback loops, ask for support and advice in addition to draft reviews along the way for effectively managing OP production
Reflect and adapt to emerging and changing life and project happenings, stay agile and dynamic to make it a living document
Generative Question:
“What evidence would show us that we are completing our tasks, achieving our objectives and making 100% of our dreams come true?”
Design Framework:
Appropriate design process, philosophy and methods, using Dragon Dreaming
Goals articulation:
Set objectives and goals for OP production
Plan Activities:
Make a task list and develop a time plan for writing and completing it
Project Plan:
Create a project game board with the Dragon Dreaming method called Karabirrdt (spider web) around the four phases dream, plan, do and celebrate integrating tasks, structure, timing and energy flows
Generative Question:
“What things need to happen to enable 100% of the dream to come true”
“Which objective, if given attention to first, will facititate the achievement of the other objectives and make the dream come true”
Personal leadership and responsibility for OP creation and LIPD, people involved through conversation, learning and support, main advisor, guild buddies, friends and family
Project Description:
OP 1 LIPD output design, writing and creation process documenting the action learning design of the next year
Dreaming Circle:
Ignite motivation, creativity and commitment
Generative Question:
“What would this project have to be like that afterward you can say, you could not have spent your time in any better way?“
Acceleration to BSc capstone phase with strategic, high quality work
New Awareness:
Be an active creator an designer of my own daily life, make it a joyful, fulfilling, productive and meaningful experience
Initial Idea:
Clear and empowering learning design and project plan guided by permaculture thinking resulting in strategic goals, practical implementation, adaption routine and support system
Inspiration and Motivation:
Love and passion for action learning, design and creativity, challenge and joy in pushing learning edges
Feedback Integration:
Previous OPs and PoDAPO criteria
Collect information about permaculture, design, learning theory, project management, goal setting, writing practices, presentation styles
Methods and Tools:
Online research, self-foraging, websites, books, articles, videos as well as personal life and learning experiences. deep reflection, listening to (inner/outer) calling and feedback and inspiring conversations and sharing with others
Brainstorming OP report including design writing and presentation, mindmap with basic structure and table of contents
Compare, contrast and finally decide on design process and framework considering all methods I got to know so fare in my pathway
Explore and evaluate OPs and especially LIPDs from other associates, find most inspiring and successful reports to learn from
Look at LIPD example OP structure and guiding framework, include all required elements and PoDAPO criteria
Re-read, change and tweak OP structure, play around with overall flow, map out different possibilities as prototypes, design and integrate feedback from first Mahara page outlines
Be innovative, expand edges and think outside the box
Structure and content:
Adapt and finalize OP structure mindmap, create abstract and content sections, play around with various genres, writing styles and mixed media for the presentation
Design Process:
Experiment, design structure and Mahara OP presentation prototype
Writing Texts:
Note taking and first outlines for sections, short writing examples and general flow, documenting all project and output progress
Method and Tools:
Collection and prototypes of tools for application and tweaking, stack functions
Mahara Presentation:
Draft Output Packet version on Mahara with basic design and layout
Share experiments, development, ideas and progress in talks to get feedback and tweak
Content Activities:
Develop, apply and implementat a variety of exercises, tools, methods and activities generating a broad content base for my LIPD
Harvest major project and learning experiences in creative and effective ways for sharing with others
Brainstorm, create mind maps, take notes and eventually write all the texts, a combination of academic research, project report and storytelling
Visual Material:
Design, develop and create visual material including pictures, diagrams, mind maps and graphics
Think about and design the layout, presentation style and general visual look of the Output Packet in Mahara
Writing Practice:
Map thoughts and structure out in my head first, take notes and write in flow before compiling the material into a nice text
Time Management:
Develop a rough timeline and breake the OP into smaller pieces for better estimation, daily to-do list, time tracking and routine reflections on timing including re-design
Project Management:
Project plan, the Karabirrdt with all tasks and milestones presented in the four phases if dreaming, planning, doing and celebrating connected by song lines for a natural work flow
Build up and keep momentum and energy during the entire doing phase by re-connecting to the visionary passions and inspirational ideas from the dreaming circle and sharing the development with other people
Un/learning experiences:
Way of looking back and harvesting what happened, pivotal points, changes, emotions. I learned something from every experience and interaction
Journal writing:
Intentionally reflecting, harvesting and documenting insights or experience of happenings for deepening, space for reflection and observation, I use journaling to share honestly, process issues and clear my head of thoughts by writing down and let go
Zone 00 design:
Intense, dynamic, interesting design process and method of getting to know myself better, clarifying and designing personal zone and learning, implementing zone 00 design is a major step of personal development and living a purposeful, fulfilling life
