Firstly, Do we need a set of house rules displayed in the space?
To feel safe and secure do we need to know the boundary and the limit?
Otherwise are there latent hierarchies?
On p.133 in Processing:Analogue/Digital Material Surfaces (imprecise with precise tools): A collaborattive student-staff workshop with international guests
by Dan Robinson:
"Reflection: Managing student-staff collaborations
As an approach to teaching and learning, I believe our
workshop shows that student-staff collaboration in
learning new skills and producing and exhibiting work
can enable more complex learning to take place, than
the sometimes more hierarchical tutorial, lecture and crit scenarios... This is not to propose
‘non-hierarchical’ as a straightforward concept. Far
from it, lack of structure and formality may reinforce
latent hierarchies; individuals may dominate or coerce
each other through ‘collaboration’. I use the term nonhierarchical
with caution as a means to investigate
collaborative approaches to student-staff learning."
