What is a Intervention

Intervention entity pages are used for working with RKC interventions--unique instances of Patterns applied to a particular Community of Place. They help to generate lived experience of how Patterns perform in unique contexts. These entities can be added by referencing them from the Interventions tab of a either Person or Initiative pages.
  • Main: The Main section contains:
    • a few required fields, such as a brief description, parent/sibling/offspring, Community of Place where it took place, and page curator(s);
    • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;
    • and, lastly, a summary of Persons and/or Initiatives which have this Intervention on their "playlist";

This entity uses tabs to organize the following:

  • Context: The Context tab allows for extended documentation of the unique circumstances about this Intervention, including any relevant happenings and related past interventions. [still under development]
  • Intervention Design: The Intervention Design tab enables an interactive pattern-generated design process.[still under development]
  • Narratives: The Narratives tab allows for various types of narrative about this Intervention, any relevant learning generated via its application, a review about its use in a particular context, etc.

Please Note: Pattern and Intervention are generative displays:*Blue links, link to an existing page;

Intervention page for Research & Mapping System intervention
RKC is actually a combined Participatory Action Research (PAR) and a Participatory Action Learning (PAL), as well as, a mapping system.

Context

Participatory Action Research & Mapping System was the intellectual output (IO) for two Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership grants. The Research & Mapping System resulted in the design and implementation of the Regenerative Knowledge Commons (RKC) developed by the regenerative design team at FCiências.ID. It comprises IO1 of the CCC Project and IO4 of the iACT Project.

PAR System

RKC functions as PAR system, because it enables transformative ecosystems and Initiatives to engage in "modeling" the self-organizing relations and co-creative activity in Communities of Place.

PAL System

RKC functions as a PAL system, because it enables Persons and Initiatives participating Communities of Practice to actively engage in knowledge creation and co-learning around how Patterns of Interventions work in varying contexts represented in Communities of Place.

Mapping System

RKC functions as a relational mapping system, in that it maps the transformative ecosystems at the intersect of Communities of Place and Communities of Practice.

Innovations

RKC innovates in several important ways:

  • As a PAR system, it enables open-modeling of the constellation of relations in transformative ecosystems;
  • As a wiki,
    • it is built for ease-of-use with the addition of dynamic forms, templates and tables that also preserve the relations between all the RKC entities;
    • It enables translation of entity pages into any language;
  • As an online space, it continually updated, because it is not referential but a live space that is inhabited;
  • As a knowledge commons,
    • it deepens over time, wealth of knowledge, self-knowledge and co-learning generated; and,
    • it grows exponentially over time with every new Persons and Initiatives that inhabits it, along with their universe of relations, and world of lived experience;

[edit]

About Narrative Tab...

The Context tab allows for extended documentation of the unique circumstances about this Intervention, including any relevant happenings and related past interventions leading up to it. [Note: this feature is still under development]


[MY note]: 1. Display intervention context 2. Display Happenings 3. Display related past interventions

[edit]

About Narrative Tab...

The Intervention Design tab enables an interactive pattern-generated design process. [Note: this feature is still under development]


[MY Note]: 1. Display guiding pattern 2a. Display Design pattern or 2b. Display Process pattern

[edit]

About Narratives Tab...

The Narratives tab allows for various types of narrative about this Intervention, any relevant learning produces, a reviews about its use as an application of a Pattern, etc.
