Now, in the transition period from industrial society to information society, the paradigms we had taken for granted are changing. In the post-paradigm-shift world, all the unstated assumptions on which we operate seem ill defined and complex. A paradigm shift is also looming in the areas of communication and learning. We are seeking to liberate ourselves from one-way communication and learning a la quality control, in which learning is equated with merely meeting preset standards. The shift, while liberating, is also disorienting: feelings of emptiness and derision tinge what we seek to communicate and learn. Perhaps we ourselves are being driven to undergo a shift as well. This symposium, reviewing our four days of workshops, will consider how this paradigm shift in the nature of knowledge is affecting communication and learning.
