Fix the Plan/practice inconsistency
Confirm Emily's edits are finished
Refactor findings to eliminate "empathize"
Refactor figures to simplify Rogers' stuff
Make Dan's edits
Add bit explaining students learned negative opinions using Rogers' process. (and social influence to conform wouldn't be negative if SLs did better persuasion job, it might actually reinforce them)

No blockers yet but I expect I will want to do a lot of testing this week as I write, edit, write all of these sections.


p.s. haven't been disciplined about workbench lately -- these are stories I had in backlog that I've actually completed recently.

I'm running into a question about internal consistency in my model -- I want to check my understanding about process v causal models by testing my current one, which I'll do with Dan in a few minutes by phone.

Shifted the focus of this week from editing and lit review to refactoring findings -- so won't meet my initial sprint goals but I've made valuable progress of a different kind.

I haven't been getting past looking through concepts for peer influence, but I think I actually know enough to move to writing for now and then I can iterate in the future.

Looking for "peer pressure" constructs -- Rogers has something about how peers are good persuaders but my findings suggest that it wasn't persuasion that mattered, just sustained pressure.

@Matt, I think you mentioned something I might check out, what was that?

Daniel Rees Lewis - So as a start for peer influence we have:
- peer influence section in the SSRL handbook
- peer influence in Kraut and Resnick book
- peer influence book by Cialdini

Spencer Carlson - Nice, thank you Dan. Kraut was what Matt had mentioned, and those other ones are super useful too.

Note: I found that the papers I used for spaceboxing all had block quotes and regular quotes, and seemed to be about the level of in-depth that I currently have.

Retro for Friday, Jul 22

Spencer Carlson

What are we doing well?
Maintaining my project's velocity while being a bit more excited about Dan's summer studio project and having regret/frustration about all of the things I wish I'd done better between January and March (but probably couldn't have done better given where I was at in learning to do research).

What are we doing less well?
Also, I really liked doing the lit review alongside analysis this week. It helped me to do something I often don't do which is be really mindful and deliberate about how my every action links to my contribution/value.

BUT, this is still something I'm not great at, so I want to formalize an improvement strategy to try and sustain this.

What measurable changes will we make to improve?
I'm going to put post-its on my desk that I will see several times a day to delegate my mindfulness.

They will say "what does this contribute?" "how does this contribute?""is this necessary?" "what can you test now?".

I will iterate on these throughout the week.

I will read them as I do work and hopefully do it better. The measurement will be my reflection on whether or not these were helpful self-facilitation questions that got me unstuck and doing better work — super fuzzy I know, but it will be clear to me.

Learn about how PBL, SBL, and LCs relate and diverge. [2] (4 tasks)
Learn what happened to the study of learning communities since the early 2000s. [2] (4 tasks)
As a reviewer, I can read a subsection in the findings about how low trial qual and student resistance let to lower PL self-efficacy led to reduced diffusion effort so that I can assess consequence, novelty, and evidence. [3] (4 tasks)
As a reviewer, I can read a subsection (1 P) in the findings about how ceased diffusion effort led to discontinuation so that I can understand how the study is N, C, E. [1] (4 tasks)

Are we on track to complete our sprint goal?
Yes

What is our biggest confusion(s) or blocker(s)? Who or what might be able to help us?
I don't know how to enter "learning as value" stories. I tried some here but they don't feel right.

Do you have examples or guiding criteria?

Daniel Rees Lewis - I actually really struggled with the "learning as a value" issue with the DFAers this summer.

We should really ask Chris.
