Knowledgelab have posted an interview with Etienne Wenger, and a full (90 min) lecture given by Etienne on the topic: "What if we assumed that society itself is a large-scale learning system?"
Etienne Wenger is one of the founding fathers of Social Learning Theory
and the concept of â€œPracticed Communitiesâ€. People are learning
together â€“ every individual deals and engage in many different
communities of practice. Here people negotiate and define what
competence and knowledge is. To know something or to be competent
builds on the individuals experiences of being in the world – learning
is a constant transformation or journey of the self.
