Learning Architecture

Yesterday I’ve met with Marc Coenders at the beautifull Media Centre in Hilversum. Marc is also a member of the CPSquare community and his doctoral thesis “Learning Architecture: an exploratory study of space and learning in work settings and close-to-practice learning” is the focus in this week’s “Research and Dissertation Series” of the CPsquare community.

CP2 Research and Dissertation Series
The research series is a regularly recurring activity in the community in which a specific research of one of the members is being topic of discourse for a single week. Research is being shared and in a discussion forum, members are able to ask questions to Marc. The week ends with an synchronous conversation through skype/ webex. John Smith (facilitator of the community) always asks two other members to join the discussion as being session hosts. This time, Christina Merl and I were asked to participate. I must say, it is pretty good technique to get some people joining in the discussion.

Marc’s research on facilitation and space
The main question in his doctoral thesis was: “What is the relationship between space and learning in work settings and how can this relation be influenced and utilized by learning facilitators?”.

While reading the summary of the thesis, i’ve been tweeting some lines. It was very interesting to read about the relationship between space and learning. Marc’s attention was brough to it by people using sentences like “i’m not that far” “i will never reach that point”. Based on a theretical exploration and through 4 case studies, the study presents a model of developmental space. The model consists of 4 dimensions that can help faciliators in understanding and creating spaces for learning.

Marc uses the metaphor of Learning Architecture as a new discipline of facilitation. Learning Architecture is not just the execution or implementation of a prescribed design. It is also a result of a process of negotiation about the meaning of the design. Marc argues in his thesis to view work as learning, focus on cultivating spaces for learning and learning friendships. The learning architect contributes to learning ecologies.

Facilitation has become a way of participating, focussing on questioning ways of working and cherishing what has been accomplished”

    I like your Tweets from the session, Joost. Unfortunately when I search for #coenders this morning, I don’t get any results. I have to go to your Twitter page. This underscores how temporary tweets are. I think we need to adopt a practice where we gather the “good tweets” and re-post them somehwere, like on your blog (which might be relatively more permanent). :-)

    Hi John, fully agree with you. I dont really understand why its not working to see the tweets with hashtag. it is not that long ago that ive tweeted them.Probably there are other sites that are able to get the tweets?

    Beste Joost,
    betekent het feit dat het werk van Coenders via jouw blog gewoon te down-loaden is, dat ik het vrij mag gebruiken (met bronvermelding natuurlijk?) Ik wilde het bekend maken bij de leden van het ECLO-netwerk (rijksbreed netwerk van adviseurs Leren&Ontwikkelen)

    Hi Anna,
    Leuk dat deze post je zo heeft kunnen inspireren! De dissertatie van Marc is vrij te downloaden, in die zin dus ook open om te verspreiden en zijn ideeën verder bekendheid te geven. Uiteindelijk is dat natuurlijk het doel van de wetenschap! Ik denk dat het leuk is om Marc hierover een berichtje te geven, ongetwijfeld kan hij je nog verder helpen bij eventuele vragen. Zie: http://www.leerarchitectuur.nl/overons.html

    Groet, Joost
