I am glad that you read our paper Dave, and valued a quote from a survey respondent . In the conclusions, we said “Use of the rhizome metaphor for designing teaching and learning experiences necessitates consideration of distribution of power in smooth space and the fragility of the will to learn (Barnett, 2007).” I think that the context of resilience is important as well as the process. I have started to play with a different idea of fragility and resilience of the institutional context here https://francesbell.wordpress.com/2016/04/02/institutional-fragility-and-resilience/ and would also like to think about a similar idea of fragility within networks/ communities.
