Marshall McLuhan once quipped, "I don't know who discovered the water but it sure wasn't a fish." Typical of his nutty wit, although I heard from someone that he actually paraphrased it from a Chinese proverb. And come to think of it, this also reminds me of another ancient dude who liked deep thoughts. Isn't this akin to the conundrum that Plato's cave presents? Indeed, the meta challenge of being aware of our context—and how it influences and conditions our perspectives— is a perennial and timeless one.
To that end, I wrote a working paper on the use of learning journeys, mainly for a corporate audience. Learning journeys, incidentally, are one of those tools for getting out of the proverbial "box." This is a draft version so comments and suggestions are welcome.
This paper also explains my blog silence lately.
But what I want to know is this: where do you swim?
