The idea of this blog is to serve as a platform for conversation and debate among learning technologists and those with which we work. I believe that we are in the process of creating, defining and building a new discipline, and that in the future learning technology will be viewed as an applied academic discipline. But I could be wrong. Who is a learning technologist? What follows are some attributes that I think tie us together as a discipline. I look forward to hearing about the attributes I missed or just got plain wrong.
