๐Ÿ’ฌ What am I?

Replied to What am I? (Digital - Learning - Culture)
A couple of months ago I joined a running club and discovered two things: Running is quite hard I canโ€™t explain my job to anyone at the running club This forced me to ask โ€˜what am I?โ€™
I can totally relate to your point about struggling to tell your story. I too struggle with this. I work on a technology project that has struggled with its own identity which only adds to my own conundrum. I think that you capture some of that problem with your discussion of the place of technology. For some the project I am a part of is about improving efficiency, while for others it is about transformation. In addition to the reality that my role and responsibility seems to continually morph and change, I still don’t know what being a ‘Subject Matter Expert’ actually means.

  1. Whatโ€™s helped me is to try and establish if the people Iโ€™m working with frame tech as efficiency or transformation before we get into any details. Talking at cross purposes on this gets frustrating for everyone. The challenging part for me is when transformation is seen as efficiency โ€“ no change in practice, just an upping of scale (or gearing). Thatโ€™s not a totally unreasonable position to take but it is limiting and misses some of the more interesting opportunities to evolve, rather than simply expand, the way we engage students.
