Prof John Lee – University of Edinburgh

Recycled Resources and Learning Communities

Abstract
Alignment, convention, dialogue, the emergence of symbols, communities and vicarious learning form a complex knot of interconnected issues that, if we can untangle them, may shed light on much that is of interest in learning for creative practice. This talk will look at some of the strands of research that are implicated, and some previous experience with attempts to recycle captured learning experiences into a community resource. Why should we expect this to work, and will it work differently in different areas of learning?
