2.2 Basic Concepts

Last week, you’ve identified a wide range of terms from course readings. Thanks to many of you who contributed your definitions of important terms. See the Hypothes.is search results below:

This week, we will be immersed in a number of key SNA concepts. In the following video, I “glide over” some basic terms that are often used in SNA. You do not need to memorize them all. As a matter of fact, I see those terms existing as a network (see the image below); as you “unlock” one term, you are also activating others. So spend time on some terms, and you’re implicitly learning about others.
