The Metapattern Institute is an independent digital humanities and action research network located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Information and technology pervade all aspects of human activity today. Yet even though humanity has an endless amount of information and technology at its fingertips; information literacy and an understanding of integral facticity and enactive fallibilism still evades large segments of the population from achieving overall health and well-being. The Metapattern Institute was founded on the rising challenge of addressing this growing problem in Canada, and around the world.
The Metapattern Institute is the first digital humanities and action research network to be founded on integral facticity and enactive fallibilism. Integral facticity and enactive fallibilism is a growing area of research in the fields of sociology, anthropology, educational psychology, and information science that is vastly accelerating information literacy, knowledge management, and knowledge mobilization to improve the overall quality of life and health of our civic, democratic, and shared lifeworld.
