As I was nodding, I found myself thinking of how my coping abilities are a direct practise of my understanding of the partnership between connectivism and phronesis. Chaos is part of our lives and we constantly find that we are unsure (and don't know anything) about anything but when we have a strong understanding of what is common sense (I've called it "corporate common sense" for "workplace phronesis") practise then we shine and even lead. I applaud your ability to translate following uncertainty to leading through uncertainty. Kudos!

Josien, Yap ... I wonder if we have in common that we have different lives, maybe even in different countries. I wonder if that kind of experience gives us a privelaged insight into not understanding?

This blog

  • My name is Bev Trayner and I live in Setúbal, Portugal. The focus of my research and practice is designing for learning in distributed communities. I am particularly interested in connecting people in international communities. Key words are: communities of practice, learning, meaning-making, inclusion, multiliteracies, Portugal, and Web2.0 technologies. Keeping a blog helps me navigate my way through different practices and world views. Phronesis includes pondering on the specifics and the universal. It follows on from my previous blog "Em duas línguas".

    More about my publications, presentations etc.
