Call recording: Learning to make a difference
What can we gain by looking at learning as a social phenomenon, which is all about following one’s curiosity, engaging one’s uncertainty, and making a difference in one’s life and/or the world? How is this perspective helpful when considering what we are doing in the Deep Adaptation Forum, and other social spaces in our lives?
In this webinar, we discussed Bev & Etienne Wenger-Trayner’s perspective on social learning, and how it can be useful to understand the changes happening to people in online communities.
We also touched on Paulo Freire’s pedagogy of the oppressed, on learning as apprenticeship, mutual learning, the importance of safety and belonging for learning and personal change to happen… among other topics.
ABOUT THE CONSCIOUS LEARNING WEBINARS
This webinar is part of the Conscious Learning Festival (July to September, 2021), itself an offshoot of Wendy and Dorian’s participatory Action Research project in the Deep Adaptation Forum (see here). These webinars touch on the topics of learning, change, and Deep Adaptation. Where relevant, they will highlight the presenters’ “learning journey” into the Deep Adaptation Forum and beyond.
