Praxis is an explicit attempt to connect practice to theory?
@Downes I could imagine situations where non-theory based practice might occur. Practice based on instinct, or practice based on past experience would be different than practice explicilty connected to theory. In fact, I would suspect that, for many instructors (esp at Uni level where subject matter is valued above pedagogical knowledge), instinct & experience are more evident in their practice than theory. Maybe the difference is in the explicitness of connecting theory to practice?

@chendricks Probably shouldn't right now as we have hit a delicate spot in the negotiations. Suffice to say that I am working with a vendor on a sandbox/pilot project for BC system. If all goes well, I should be able to talk about it next week at FoL. Actually hoping to make an announcement about the project at FoL.
I've been at work since November trying to get a project off the ground. Right now it's feeling like...
Yuk. I am chaperoning an overnight school trip for my son and his classmates in a few weeks. I had to get a criminal record check done. The police called me and said I've been flagged because I share the same date of birth with someone on their "this person shouldn't be in contact with vulnerable people" database. Apparently, it's a common occurance, but now I have to go in and get fingerprinted. Creeps me out thinking I am that closely associated with someone on that list.

@dajbelshaw That was certainly true at one point, and may still be today. I've been away from this kind of technical work for awhile now. But end result has always been the same. Getting stuff from A to B is not easy. What is equally interesting to me is how this becomes an issue for many only when they actually try to migrate content from one system to another. Many assume that this kind of content interoperability is easy and just standard features of the various LMS's.
