  • 15. Siemens on Chaos "I’m not aware of any research actually that says linear structure produces better outcomes than more chaotic meandering structure. Our intent … is to argue that – the experience of learning, making sense of that chaos, is actually the heart of the learning experience, – but if an instructor makes sense of that chaos for you and gives you all the readings and sets the full path in place for you then • you are eviscerating the learner’s experience • because now you’ve made sense of them and all you’ve told them is walk the path that I’ve formed. – When it comes to complexity I’m a great fan of letting learner’s hack their way through that path and getting the value of that learning experience and that sense-making process.” Vance Stevens Education2020 Jan 2014
