RKC Co-Learn

One of the two interdependent aspects of the RKC wiki is Co-Learn, where regenerative commoners--individuals and collectives, who aspire to take on transformative roles-- curate patterns and document Interventions for regenerative commoning.

These Patterns can take the form of practices, processes, frameworks, tools, capacities, livelihoods and any other elements of transformative action that can be observed in organic, life-enhancing processes.

Interventions are concrete expressions of Patterns re-contextualized for use in unique contexts.

Interventions represent opportunities for documenting, sharing and reflecting upon co-learning generated through lived experience of what Pattern works well in certain contexts. The co-learning that develops over time can inform and enable conscious integration of learning into new Interventions.

Co-Learn tells the unfolding story from the perspective of Communities of Practice guided by the principle of co-learning, whose aim is to enliven transformative ecosystems through collective sense-making and learning that will lead to increasingly transformative Interventions.


There are two entity structures relevant to Co-Learn, and each one has a set of features. They all follow a similar organization, with some Basic and Summary info on top and multiple tabs across the middle.

Each tab below describes the various types of pages in Co-Learn.

Entity structures

[edit]

Pattern pages are used for working with RKC patterns. These can be added by referencing them from the Pattern tab of either Person or Initiative entity page.

  • Main: The Main section--infobox (right) and main column (left)--contains:
    • a few required fields, such as a ordering structure and usage mode, brief description, parent/sibling/offspring, Community of Practice caring for it, and page curator(s);
    • optionally, one has the ability to display relevant images, give a full name, and longer description;
    • a section that displays more detail about the Pattern's resolution of forces and case uses;
    • and, lastly, a summary of Persons and/or Initiatives which have this Pattern on their "playlist";

This entity uses tabs to organize the following:

  • Utilization: The Utilization tab lists all the Interventions derived from this Pattern.
  • Narratives: The Narratives tab allows for various types of narrative about the Pattern, any relevant research, a review about its use, etc.
  • Essence: The Essence tab allows for anyone in RKC to comment on what makes a Pattern unique along three different dimensions. Over time, this feature can offer deeper insights to what each Pattern brings to this co-learning space.

Please Note: Pattern and Intervention are generative displays:

  • Blue links, link to an existing page;
  • Red links, prompt the creation of a new page with the appropriate form and template.

[edit]

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--infobox (right) and main column (left)--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 enables an interactive pattern-generated design process.[still under development]
  • Narratives: The Narratives tab allows for various types of narrative about the Pattern, any relevant research, a review about its use, etc.
