Thinking Together - Networked Learning - New forms of learning in social work organisations.

About this event

To celebrate 10 years of the Key Situation model, we are delighted to announce that we will be thinking about new forms of learning in social work organisations with none other than Etienne Wenger, one of the pioneers of the Community of Practice approach. In his input, he will reflect on the potential of the CoP approach for learning organisations. The most significant learning happens in real-time, in social contexts, among people who can act as learning partners. However, while we have quite rigorous models to consider the informational and cognitive aspects of learning in classrooms, we need to get better at considering the social dimensions of learning. His social theory of learning offers such an understanding.

Kicking the day off will be Pippa Yeoman who will talk about the importance of keeping the focus on what the learner actually does—or their learning activity. Doing this well requires designing tasks to generate valued forms of learning activity, thoughtfully scaffolding key social processes, and paying careful attention to the nature and availability of physical and digital tools for learning. These ideas form the basis of the Activity Centred Analysis and Design (ACAD) Framework (Goodyear & Carvalho, 2014; Carvalho & Yeoman, 2017; Goodyear, Carvalho, & Yeoman, 2021) that she will present, along with practice-based examples of how it is currently being used.

On the second day, Adi Staempfli will weave the threads of the two previous speakers together and focuses in his presentation on the implementation of the key situations approach to support learning for co-production and knowledge sharing for the development of knowledge-based and ethical practices in social work. He will share his knowledge stemming from his recently completed thesis 'Practice-Based Design for Professional Learning and Knowledge Sharing'.
