Review: Mind Meld: Micro Collaboration Between E Learning Designers And Instructor Experts

Mind Meld: Micro Collaboration Between E Learning Designers And Instructor Experts Mind Meld: Micro Collaboration Between E Learning Designers And Instructor Experts by Jon D. Aleckson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

A bit conflicted about this book. On the one hand there are some elements of sage advice in here, but the book has a few failings for my liking:
1. There is barely any cited evidence here (the references list is just 2 pages), and most 'evidence' seems to rely on anecdotes and personal conversations.
2. There is a needless re-branding of existing roles (SME = instructor-expert) which makes the writing a little more unnecessarily complex. It also introduces a term, micro-collaboration, without really providing really distinctive characteristics as to why there is a need for it (I don't buy the author's claim that collaboration is only between larger entities)
3. The authors fail to really discuss their model/framework in any degree of depth (see point #1).
