10 Brilliant videos on the Art of Hosting

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Nancy White links to this Chris Corrigan post and quotes it in full, as will I: Over the past few years Jerry Nagel and a group of practitioners in Minnesota have been working deeply with the Art of Hosting in the state.  The Bush Foundation, who has supported a lot of this work, helped create 10 fantastic videos on the Art of Hosting and some of the methods of the process.  You could look through these and get a great foundation in what it’s all about.  Enjoy!

  1. Art of Hosting – introduction

  2. AOH Community Conversations for the common good

  3. AOH Four-fold Practice

  4. AOH Harvesting

  5. AOH Collective Story Harvest

  6. AOH Chaordic Path

  7. AOH Chaordic Stepping Stones

  8. AOH Circle Process

  9. AOH Open Space

  10. AOH ProAction Cafe

I will add that the title refers to hosting meetings and gatherings, not hosting web services and websites.

Re: 10 Brilliant videos on the Art of Hosting

Ha, I love the clarification about "hosting!" Good catch.

I'd be curious to see how much of the thinking/values behind the Art of Hosting work resonates with your ideas about your upcoming talk about "Ways of the Successful Self-Directed Learner." It seems to me that the facilitation approaches I'm using in my work (including in the "classroom") involve a focus on engagement and responsibility. See also http://www.liberatingstructures.com
