Given the fast changing and accelerating world, reforming education constantly requires our full attention. The requirements to knowledge and skills will change on a constant basis. But, how to keep up to acquiring the latest and most relevant knowledge in such a dynamic time? And how do we deal with the almost exploding sources of knowledge that can be used in the learning process? This paper introduces a new way of looking at education, where it is not only the students who learn; not only teachers who educate; not only the researchers who find out new developments; and not only the practitioners who use knowledge and skills. The paper is meant to sketch a de-linearized way of looking at learning as opposed to the traditional linear learning approach. It develops a view on a new learning reality that needs further elaboration to proof the relevance of this approach.
