Learning is Identity Engagement

Learning via iterative and rigorous action research is transformative in nature. With the Pepperdine cadre we commit to community and to contributing collective intelligence towards the value-aligned decisions we make. Informed decisions become actions within each individual’s organization. The outcomes are analyzed and evaluated. Reflection provides greater light and knowledge about the decisions we make which feed back in to the next iteration of plan, act, evaluate, and reflect. The individual and the sphere he or she occupies are both more fully illuminated through the process. We are better able to navigate and act because we see more, more of ourselves, our identity and the relationships that govern our interactions.

Manifestations of my journey through this transformation will make occasional appearances here. Join me and enjoy the ride.

LEARNTIVITY

In speaking with my school teacher wife, we both felt that creativity and learning are essentially activities that bring about something of value that was not present before. Creativity and learning are closely related. Creation is reorganizing and rearranging in new configurations. Learning is rearranging perspectives and reorganizing mental models to see new possibilities. New horizons are reached with both and we catch a glimpse of our true identity and potential. Problem solving gives the impetus for creativity and learning. Often, the constraints or conditions in which we operate insist that we be creative and learn to find a desired solution.
