We can define Peer Shadowing as observing your peer in a working activity in its natural environment to gain insight into a role.
How should peer learners find each other? In the environment of the craft they're interested in makes the most sense, with tools ready for play. Is there a way to structure exploring potential peer learners? Could it be a matching process? The best matching is organic, but how can you encourage organic matching without structuring anything. Just providing the environment and space for discussion? What if someone that wants to be a peer learner doesn't find anyone to learn alongside.. :( Maybe there's backup mechanisms for finding new matches, or just setting expectations that it takes time to find a peer learner, because enthusiasm levels need to be there on both sides.
Let's say you're interested in playing the role of Concept Composer.
Well hello, I often play the role of Concept Composer. I can tell you about how I play the role, but you'll need to discover your own boundaries for how you play the role. You have to discover, theorize, and practice that role for yourself.
I unfortunately can't write down all the things you should do to be a Concept Composer, because I don't know all of them. I can tell you how I think about it, and recap what I've tried and how it worked out. I can work alongside you so that you can feel how Norm's Concept Composer works. I can point you to Concept Composers I'm inspired by. Maybe all of that will shed light on potential boundaries you could define for yourself, but I sincerely hope it does not limit your boundaries.
Apprenticeships == Working Alongside
We can raise each other by working together. Only you can discover how your Concept Composer [feels].
