Here are a couple of thoughts for our second thread of December 07.
The first thought is that some of the practitioner-researchers on this list have taken to calling our
explanations of our educational influences in learning, our living educational theories. We have
established an Educational Journal of Living Theories with a statement of commitment and scope
Moira Laidlaw is Chair of the Editorial Board and the first issue is in preparation. You can see the
format we are using at the above url and you may wish to submit your more extensive writings
around our second thread to JOLTS.
The second thought is that if you enter:
you can participate in the Inclusional Research Forum and Learning Space:
"Evolving Co-creatively, Beyond Conflict.
A space to encourage our understanding of space in the fluid flow of nature.
Is it possible to understand what gets in the way of human understanding?
That is the question we are asking ourselves as we invite you to participate in the development
and communication of a natural awareness that we call 'inclusionality'.
We think that inclusional understanding , a natural capability that can be ‘re-awakened’ in all of
us, can radically transform the way we think, feel and behave, enabling us to live more
harmoniously in sustainable dynamic relationship with our living space and one another."
When asked recently in another e-forum how he would describe inclusionality to a friend, Alan
"For me, inclusionality means knowing how wonderful it feels to be aware of
receptive, loving influence everywhere, and how terrible it is to deny this."
