You learn on the playing field, where opinions are validated, values mediated, beliefs formed and assumptions are tested. Apprenticeship is the natural way to learn.
Shared meaning is the difference between personal knowing and acquired understanding or social knowledge. To make meaning explicit and ensure alignment, it is essential to test assumptions in a group situation.
