The Social Learning Cycle (SLC)

Knowledge flows give rise to a four-step learning process within an agent population in the I-Space called the Social Learning Cycle or SLC. In the SLC, following a scanning process, new knowledge is created through problem-solving activities, shared through a diffusion process with a wider population, and internalized by that population through an absorption process (Figure 4). Different SLC configurations in the I-Space reveal the learning strengths and weaknesses of different agent groups. Some are given to hoarding their knowledge, others to sharing it.

::: What We Do :::
I-Space Institute promotes the concept of strategic management of knowledge. It does this through three distinct activities: research, development, consulting.
