Knowledge, Learning, Community

As Doug Belshaw says, this is an extremely practical concept. A Critical Social Learning System (CSLS) (no Wikipedia page) "implies viewing the world from as many different perspectives as possible and from a systemic perspective to use those different worldviews to inform the other."  (From Blackmore, p. 35). I would note it was practically impossible to find an actual definition online. According to Belshaw, ChatGPT informs us that "Richard Bawden's work... integrates systems thinking with critical reflection in addressing complex social and environmental issues, particularly in agriculture." The image is from Richard Bawden, p. 45 in the same volume, probably behind a paywall (I have access in my office (but access to a simple blog post on the same subject is blocked)). But it's all good stuff.
