Problems and Methods, Second Edition
Chapter 2: Practice as collective knowledgeable doing
This chapter extends the concept of knowing-in-practice, arguing that a practice can be read as a collective knowledgeable doing, in which the key activity is constituted by the capacity to maintain a common understanding of the situation while being engaged in individual tasks. Control rooms of coordination centres best illustrate this aspect of practising, together with the capacity to perform ‘presence’, to scaffold the learning process of younger colleagues, and mobilizing border resources into the practice at hand.
