Creating Epistemic Environments: Learning, Teaching and Design
This chapter outlines a fifth epistemic project, extending and drawing together the set of four epistemic challenges and projects that we presented in Chap. 3. The chapter centres on the idea of ‘grounded actionable knowledge’ – grounding human knowledge and knowing in the physical environment and in an embodied, conscious and conscientious self. Creating and reconfiguring one’s epistemic environment thereby becomes an important accomplishment. We conclude the chapter with some thoughts about educational approaches and designs for learning which can be aligned with this expanded conception of epistemic fluency.
