Methods... Start by reading a book - a perfect way to imagine the world from another person's perspective. Then get out into, & immerse yourself in, the complex tapestry of existence.
Thank you Julie. I think it's important to challenge students' perception of the world and their practice and how they can collaborate not compete.
I think increasing numbers of traditional practices are engaging with collaborative projects, but there's a ling way to go, before it becomes the norm. Installing the idea of collaboration into the next generation of practitioners is an important step.
