Hi,

My name is Kiran Johny. My interest is in designing sustainable human learning solutions for complex and emergent problems and domains. This includes: Using insights from complexity science; Designing for self-organization; Using multiple learning-science approaches; Interdisciplinary exploration for ideas and solutions;…Read more here

ACAD framework for complex learning situations

Activity-Centred Analysis and Design (ACAD) is a meta-theoretical framework for understanding and improving local, complex, learning situations developed by Peter Goodyear and colleagues I have recently posted an abstract about the framework. Here is a blogpost link and a short video introduction to the framework Blogpost link: ACAD: Activity-Centred Analysis and Design Following is a short … Continue reading ACAD framework for complex learning situations

A Problem for Cognitive Load Theory: Jan Derry and Brandom’s Inferentialism

Previously I have written a critical review post(Link: Constructivism vs Direct Instruction) on the article “Why Minimal Guidance During Instruction Does Not Work: An Analysis of the Failure of Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching BY Paul A. Kirschner, John Sweller & Richard E. Clark. I have also posted a Guy Claxton playlist in which Claxton … Continue reading A Problem for Cognitive Load Theory: Jan Derry and Brandom’s Inferentialism

Entrepreneurship and Synergetics

Synergetics is an interdisciplinary theoretical approach that studies self-organization in complex systems(systems that are characterized by openness, dynamics, and complexity). It was developed by physicist Hermann Haken(1969) through his research experiments on laser light. He noticed unpredictable patterns emerging that cannot be explained by linear models. The properties of light change in a self-organized manner … Continue reading Entrepreneurship and Synergetics

Effectual Self-Organization: Could it be a mindful praxis for self-organization

In the last post, I have cross-checked effectuation with Cillier’s 8 attributes of self-organization. I have demonstrated that the ideas proposed by effectuation fit perfectly with self-organization principles. Advancing that point, the following are some of the core complexity principles associated with effectuation and its core principles. 1. Self-Organization/Effectual dynamicsI argue that “effectual dynamics” is … Continue reading Effectual Self-Organization: Could it be a mindful praxis for self-organization

Self-Organization: Paul Cilliers and Saraswathy

According to Paul Cilliers(1998), “the capacity for self-organisation is a property of complex systems which enables them to develop or change internal structure spontaneously and adoptively in order to cope with, or manipulate, their environment”. To him, different systems that share the property of self-organisation will not necessarily exhibit the same range of characteristics. A … Continue reading Self-Organization: Paul Cilliers and Saraswathy
