A between-place

Supporting people in self-directed learning processes is to occupy a “between-place”. One of the polarities of this between-place says things like:

“I’m with you”
“Throw yourself, you have a net(work) here!”
“I’ll help you if you need me to”
“Besides me, there’s this and this person and this person next to you”

At the same time, the other polarity says:

“Figure it out yourself”
“Don’t depend on me”
“Minimal interference”
“Your path is yours alone”

Maybe that’s why it’s not easy.
