Assumptions of an adult learning

As a student on a masters programme I made some assumptions…

I assumed there would be mutual respect 

I assumed that equality would be championed and diversity of thought would be celebrated 

 I assumed that I’d be encourage to lead on my own learning 

I assumed that criticality and reflexivity would be modelled  

I assumed that I would be engaged – with equal effort from all parties to engage and learn collaboratively

I assumed my assumptions would blown away by space and time to think, and by sharing others’ thinking 

I assumed that I would be viewed with positive regard as a being from which new thinking and knowledge and meaning can emerge…

Today I made an ass out of you and me

And I’m sad about that
