+<P ALIGN=CENTER><B>Separate and Connected Ways of Knowing</B></P>
+
+<p>This page explains a theory that may help you to look at human interactions
+ in a new way. It describes two different ways that we can evaluate and learn
+ about the things we see and hear - called separate and connected ways
+ of knowing.</p>
+<p>Although each of us may use these two methods in different amounts at different
+ times, it may be useful to imagine two people as examples, one who is a mostly
+ separate knower (Jim) and the other a mostly connected knower (Mary).</p>
+<ul>
+ <li>Jim likes to remain as 'objective' as possible without including his feelings
+ and emotions. When in a discussion with other people who may have different
+ ideas, he likes to defend his own ideas, using logic to find holes in his
+ opponent's ideas. He is critical of new ideas unless they are proven facts
+ from reputable sources such as textbooks, respected teachers or his own direct
+ experience. Jim is a very <strong>separate knower</strong>.<br>
+ </li>
+ <li>Mary is more sensitive to other people. She is skilled at empathy and tends
+ to listen and ask questions until she feels she can connect and &quot;understand
+ things from their point of view&quot;. She learns by trying to share the experiences
+ that led to the knowledge she finds in other people. When talking to others,
+ she avoids confrontation and will often try to help the other person if she
+ can see a way to do so, using logical suggestions. Mary is a very <strong>connected
+ knower</strong>.</li>
+</ul>
+<p>Did you notice in these examples that the separate knower is male and the connected
+ knower is female? Some studies have shown that statistically this tends to be
+ the case, however individual people can be anywhere in the spectrum between
+ these two extremes. </p>
+<p>For a collaborative and effective group of learners it may be best if everyone
+ were able to use BOTH ways of knowing.</p>
+<p>In a particular situation like an online forum, a single post by a person may
+ exhibit either of these characteristics, or even both. Someone who is generally
+ very connected may post a very separate-sounding message, and vice versa. The
+ purpose of rating each post using this scale is to:</p>
+<blockquote>
+ <p>a) help you think about these issues when reading other people's posts<br>
+ b) provide feedback to each author on how they are being seen by others</p>
+</blockquote>
+<p>The results are not used towards student assessment in any way, they are just
+ to help improve communication and learning.</p>
+<hr>
+<p><br>
+ In case you're interested, here are some references to papers by the authors
+ who originally developed these ideas:</p>
