Thank you Anatoliy your hot seat helped connecting potential ties, reaching out to weak ties and strengthen strong ties


This hot seat is almost over. Only a few more days until we have say goodbye to Anatoliy.
Please take the opportunity to ask your final questions, raise a few topics or make some further connections with people interested in social network analysis…

I would like to take the opportunity to thank Anatoliy for sharing his experience and great insights in the use of SNA in the context of Networked Learning. I have been following your work personally for years and the hot seat has shown us that it can certainly help to further our research in our domain.



Thank you, @maarten and Everyone for your excellent contributions to this hot seat! Good luck with your work and please keep in touch via email (gruzd [at] ryerson [dot] ca) or Twitter @gruzd.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend #NLC 2016 but I hope to see some of you at the 2016 International Conference on Social Media & Society in London on July 11-13, where we usually have a number of highly relevant sessions on Social Media and Learning .


Thank you very much @gruzd and all participants in this hot seat for the interesting Netlytic sample and for the enlightening discussions. I am a doctoral researcher with the Open University in the UK, and am using SNA within a mixed-method framework to investigate part-time language teachers’ serendipitous professional learning on Twitter.

SNA is (still) new to me, and so I very much appreciate the stimulating conversations and the suggestions for further reading I have found here. It’s such a pity that I discovered #NLC2016 too late to join the hot seat but I will certainly follow the hashtag on Twitter!
