Chris Corrigan

Entraining your mind to outcomes is the hardest practice to beat as a facilitator working in complexity. Whether it is learning, strategy or design, if you are in the complexity domain your attachment to an outcome is highly dangerous. Courtesy WRme2 on flickr.

How to Save the World

So my outrage is about the outcomes of industrial civilization’s activities, not at their alleged perpetrators. It’s being keenly aware of the situation and which interventions are, and aren’t, effective, and staying as unattached as possible to outcomes one cannot control or predict.

Exploring the Divided Brain – Final Reflections

Jenny Connected

22 nd August 2016 pm – a 4 day course with Iain McGilchrist. Ideas of complexity, uncertainty, multiplicity and learning to live with paradoxes, struck a strong chord with me. This makes me think again about what we should expect from learning in the 21 st century.

A Complex Predicament: How Our Energy, Economic and Ecological Systems are Connected (repost)

How to Save the World

That is how we have always learned and come to understand these things. We could probably learn much, too, from the homeless in our own communities, and from the people in the massive, sprawling slums of the third world, who are already living in cultures of collapse.

The End of Politics (repost)

How to Save the World

A study of history, and of collapse scenarios, suggests however that Mad Max, Taliban, clash-of-civilizations, and history-going-in-reverse outcomes (like those portrayed in Jim Kunstler’s wild-west-again cli-fi novel A World Made by Hand ) are improbable.

All There Is, Is This

How to Save the World

I feel myself wanting less, not so much being more accepting of what I have and what is, but more giving up hoping and striving due to a sense that striving and hoping and yearning and aching and dreaming don’t make any difference to the outcome, so why stress it?

Exploring future possibilities by mapping “dispositionalities”

Chris Corrigan

Back in the summer Caitlin and I led a learning lab for the board and staff members of various community foundations from around British Columbia. Each participant in the group created one or two prototypes which they rolled out, seeking to make a bit of change and learn about what helped or hindered change making in a relatively conservative sector of civil society. At all costs avoid any announcement of a change initiative or idealistic outcome based targets.

The original text is two years old and comes from the document written as part of a certification by Stichting Keurmerk Thuisonderwijs in September 2016 (more from it is at Facilitating unschooling ). He has a strong preference for learning that is embedded into real-life tasks or obviously related to them.

Skills for ‘Being’ in a Digital Age

Jenny Connected

is posed from a learning in knowledge development angle. During the interview he says that technology can ‘out know’ us, artificial intelligence is taking over human roles, and that in the future technology will become a co-agent rather than an enabler; you, me, colleagues, algorithms and robots will all work together in a techno-socio distributed learning model. The relationship between steps and an outcome are different in machines and living organisms.
