What is the Sceptic's Tarot?

  • The Sceptic's Tarot is about using Tarot cards for ideas, brainstorming, problem solving, decision-making, planning, goal-setting, motivation, self-exploration, creative activities, counselling, relaxation and more.

    There is nothing mystical, esoteric or supernatural involved.

    The cards are usually associated with divination. They do not have to be. The Sceptic's Tarot offers a different take on how Tarot cards can be used.

When I reflect on learning and what I think learning entials, I think of learning as the "Road to El dorado". A place where we all would like to be (and want to reach) and the road towards El dorado personifies that you would like to go for the gold, but stay on the road for the adventure. That is why there will be turbulations on the road! Learning is thus an adventure.

I consider it necessary that we engage in academic discourse about cooperative education, because after all is it what the learning proses of our students is about. I am concerned that the focus is often on matters other than the learning of the students.

Firstly, I like the title: "learning in vivo". I would prefer to read Billett first but comment nevertheless.

I like the description of learning as a swinging door. Learning occurs all the time and work is part thereof, another is the learning environment. We tend to ignore the remuneration aspect, but it is an important dimention of learning in the workplace. The conscious and non-conscious is woven into the subjectiveness of being a human. The social and individual influences with regard to value-systems, etc. do influence learning.

The learner's social context is in my view important in so far as the learning context to which the learner is exposed. That is why we, as cooperative education practitioners, regard it as important: the workplace, the social interaction, conflict handling, etc. All work together in order to bring about another form of cognition, that is socially acceptable.

I like the argument of the intergrated nature of the social, personal and the recognition of interdependance. I am of opinion that all function in synergy in the natural and human sciences. I support it - nothing works in isolation, there is always synergy. I found it also in my research in the natural sciences.

The outcomes of the curriculum must be assessed in some way. Both qualitative and quantitative assessment in combination (synergy) works best.

I believe that we live in a world of realities and the learning must be concretised in some way.
