@Robert Maxwell – Thank you for your comment.
You know, Robert, you raised another issue for me, namely that those who may be involved in some aspect of collective learning need to trust others involved in the experience. If I do not trust those collectively working with me, why should I share? Furthermore, if I do not buy-in to the objective, why should I put any of my attention or efforts into this?
I have been involved in teaching and learning for a long time, and can’t help but wonder how this aspect of team or group development, in team or group projects, can lead to all sorts of problems of mistrust, misaligned objectives, and witholding knowledge to maintain power.
