At the very bottom of this message is a document that Birgitt has developed
that compiles all of the OST examples she is aware of in the education


Dear Steve,
I'm an OS list subscriber, and was wondering if you had
considered compiling a summary of the OS/higher education
posts you received either to share with the list serve,
or to post on one of the OS website.  I'm sure that there
are several of us out here who would be interested in
the info folks shared with you -- if you have the time!

Hi Steve,
Any stories of Open Space in any educational settings would be most
I'm attaching the Open Space in ed file. Sorry that you couldn't find it on
the site. It is under construction and things are being pushed, pulled and
so on daily. I hope it will have everything in order in another two weeks.
Kindest regards,

Hi Birgitt,
I looked on the OPen Space site but couldn't find it. It must be on the
members-only section. Have you had any additional luck (since yesterday) in
finding your stories.
I'd love to be able to read whatever you do find so I have more than just
my own examples about OST in education.

Steve's request twigged this, and it is somehow related but not exactly. A
few months ago, I asked for any stories that were out there about the use
Open Space Technology in education and received wonderful responses. I
strung them together and posted them back to this list AND then Peg Holman
put them on the www.tmn.com/openspace site. Somewhere.
The editor of a Fieldbook for Education (similar to the Fifth Discipline
Fieldbook) is currently lukewarm about what was sent to her. I would like
resubmit our best if you are interested in participating. I would like to
see Open Space have a chapter in this Fieldbook as a good "methodology" to
be used in education. It is my goal to write a compilation of what we have,
with comments and such in two weeks time, about February 15th.  If you have
a story to share, and are willing to put the work into writing it up
specifically to share with educators, I would be pleased to receive it and
include it, along with your name and contact information. Each story should
be no more than 1000 words or so. And don't include all the parts of what
Open Space is and how the circle was opened etc. We will include that once
at the beginning of this chapter. I have no guarantees that it will be
published. I will share it back with you. I have been guaranteed that it
would be read and considered.
A quick response to let me know that I should expect something from you
would be good.
Thanks, Birgitt
