"Since the industrial revolution, our organizations and society at large have held three biases regarding learning.
First, the transmission of knowledge from an outside expert, whether a teacher, consultant or "best practice", is seen as the essence of learning.
Second, by institutionalizing "off-line" classroom learning, the building of capacity becomes separate from the use of that capacity.
Third, learning is seen primarily as a matter for individuals, not groups.
Emergent learning practices turn these three biases on their head"
