Replying to LO24553 --

A couple of weeks ago, I gave a lecture to the Directors of the shelters
for battered women in Israel, in fact trying to convince them to became a
Community of practice and to share their tacit knowledge effectively. I
was quite surprised by the reaction of some of these women that is:
learning through reflection in and on practice is kind of feminine way of
learning. They were not very explicit but they seem to agree that there is
such a thing as women way of learning. Is that true? Is that common
knowledge that I am , what a shame, discovering too late? I would
appreciate any comment on that.

(Sorry it seems I missed the beginning of this thread)
