Current technical communication practices focus on creating user-friendly experiences in web, mobile, desktop and physical environments. However, the age of networks has also valorized connection, leading to the learning theory of connectivism (Siemens, 2006). At the same time, the ubiquitousness of near-constant, mobile connection is also proving to have significant downsides. This interdisciplinary panel seeks to explore post-connectivism as a proposed new online and offline methodology that seeks to integrate connection with disconnection through rhetorical, cognitive, business, and information systems lenses. Particularly, we are interested in the application of post-connectivism to online and offline contexts, big data, and algorithms.
