how

Biesta suggests that the focus on the how rather than the what allows us to: “look at learning from a slightly different angle, and see it as a ‘response’ to a ‘question’. Rather than seeing learning as the attempt to acquire, to master, to internalise, and what other possessive metaphors we can think of, we can also see learning as a reaction to a disturbance, as an attempt to reorganise or reintegrate as a result of disintegration. We can look at learning as responding to what is other or different, to what challenges, irritates and disturbs us, rather than as the acquisition of something that we want to possess.” (Biesta, 2005)
