The walls within: working with defenses against otherness

Online Conference 5-11 July 2021

Learning as a Subversive Activity

What is meant by subversive? Is it the challenging of established forms of knowledge, or does it imply the undermining of the establishment values around the authority-figure teacher/learner relationship? In either case it can clearly be seen as a movement towards the integration of knower and known, of learner and learned. This chapter describes one approach to this movement, which is also a very clear example of the use of social processes to aid individual development, through co-counseling. It is all the more intriguing in that these personal and social processes are assisted by modern technology, by computer-assisted reflective learning.
