At P2PU, people work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
How can we create a framework for self-facilitated learning based on lessons from the world around us?
How can we find or elicit deep lessons from people, places, resources, and experiences in the world around us? Could selectively stringing together these 'lessons' be a form of alternative experiential education? How do we define a framework for learning from the world around us that anyone can use and adapt, or even create, on their own? This particular study group will explore these questions specifically in the Pacific Northwest, but with broader implications on learning everywhere.
posted message: Really interesting working paper, though it's structured more towards a corporate setting: http://www.adaptive-edge.com/papers/LJArticleV2.pdf
I think the linkages with business strengthen the argument that "learning journeys" help build important "hard" skills for the future rather than "hippie dippy" skills. What do you think?
