Members from all areas of the Fielding learning community are gathering for this dynamic learning session. Led by Human and Organizational Development (HOD) faculty facilitators Fred Steier and Dottie Agger-Gupta, the learning model for the event can be linked to foundational and advanced knowledge area assessments in systems, praxis, media, and other specialized studies. 

This conference is set to take place in Media Evolution City. For this event, HOD European cluster and co-connects Heidi Forbes öste and Sergej Van Middendorp, developed the concept for this conference with global media leaders who are affiliated with Media Evolution. The Media Evolution Community is a membership-based community of media related companies, large and small.  Their mission is to foster connections and collaboration between innovators, entrepreneurs, companies and universities.  It is a dynamic example of an emerging and new form of organizing and collaboration fit for our 21st century challenges. One of the key challenges facing such collaborative communities is the ability to move beyond the community of interest and the community of practice to form communities of purpose. The purpose is to solve particular client challenges, often in temporal organizations, without resorting to old forms of enterprise and organization that stifle opportunities for solutions. Participation will be both face-to-face and remotely via GoToMeeting.
