Some thoughts on the dichotomies inherent in learning - that between activity and reflection, that between social learning and self reflection, etc. Not deep, but I like the approach. It makes me think of the sliders Jay Cross proposed a few years ago. I was quite critical of them, for which I today feel a little bit guilty, because there was merit in the suggestion. Maybe there should be a slider for the scale between 'getting it right' and 'finding a compromise'. On the other hand, as I observed in the column, if you sacrifice a little bit of what's right, you essentially move the goalposts, and set yourself off down a slippery slope.
