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 have very much enjoyed it and hope for more. I needed more time per section, for various reasons, not just because I hoped to spend most time on it at weekends (when it was all over). Fortunately some holiday time overlapped
Initially the Rotisserie posts seemed confusing. With hindsight I feel they narrowed my approach. I prioritised responding to the Rotisserie instead of studying the materials in depth. Also I had initial troubles navigating. I only found the responses I’d been directed to. I missed some good stuff, that in other circumstances I would have read and possibly replied to.
I felt a responsibility to read carefully and consider responses to items sent to me – even if in the end I did not have time to reply, or even if I didn’t have a particular interest in the post.
I did appreciate it when others bothered to reply to me.
I took more time than for usual discussions.
I found the format interesting. I like the idea of directed questions with a publication date and staged follow up. I think I would rather be presented with all the published answers and choose for myself which ones I take further. I would have preferred a week for initial reading before the Rotisserie started (with notice of the question) The following week could have had the question publication date, and the several stages for response, and allowed more time for the background reading.
Thanks for running this one.
