Please describe your experience with the Rotisserie during this BOLD series. How did your rotisserie discussions differ from other online discussions you've had? Were your posts and the posts of others substantively different that they would have been using other discussion tools? Did you participate more or less in the discussions due to the nature of the Rotisserie discussions? Did you take more or less time writing your answers than you would have on a typical discussion board?
I am really impressed with the idea behind the Rotisserie. It is a great way to accomodate busy people already overloaded with lots of information.
... the assignments are short and easy to fit in a busy schedule, and on the other hand if you want to stay in the rotisserie, you can't lag: you get reminded of deadlines. Sure, self-motivation should be stronger than external prodding, but in other discussions, I've often seen interesting topics getting abandoned just because people wanted to have more time to reflect, and eventually gave up responding because others had gone on to a different topic.
One question, though: what does "rotisserie" mean, actually? It makes me think of chickens being grilled on a spit. A revolving spit and the revolving makes sense in this context - but is that really the image the organisers had in mind?
All the best
