I like the Gestalt approach I think to recognize in your blog.
I like the issue of power you bring up.
I my field of work, medical education, both are important.
The doctors, students, patients, faculty, officers, government, buildings, rules, procedures all matter, all are interconnected, all exert some kind of 'power' on each other.
The difficult part I me, haven't figures that out, is how to combine all that power with an education to a vocation.
It's easier for me when we would be talking about 'just learning'. Learning is IMO natural and rhizomatic.
Education though is intentional IMHO.
So the student to become a dentist or a doctor can not learn and practice on other people at will, in a rhizomatic, chaotic, open and free way.
There have to be boundaries to protect the ones with the least power, the patients.
Yet within those boundaries I would like to see the students learn in a sell motivated and engaged way in order to have them develop a natural attitude of 'permanent education'.
I feel some 'tension' in my thoughts.
Still enough to ponder about.
