Emerging Learning in Multi-lingual Environments

In a complex and dynamic environment learning and knowledge are cornerstones of a person’s development. Individuals follow a reflective and dialectic cycle of interactions with knowledge resources and community members towards enriching knowledge and thus achieving learning. Moreover, knowledge resources and community members should be limited by a language barrier. Building upon these arguments, this talk argues for an organic, bottom-up approach embracing the inherent social aspects of learning and knowledge creation. MORMED is described as an environment nurturing the formation of emergent learning whilst transcending the language barrier, and is applied in the area of Lupus disease. In this talk I will explain how MORMED is creating the infrastructure that facilitates the emergent learning between members of Lupus disease community.
