PLN Hierarchy

I was trying to describe a system in which a PLN encourages mentorship at lower levels. At some stage, the course experts should encourage participants below them to recover old ground and attempt to guide new participants along their learning journey. This would have the benefit of:

a) not excluding new members from old discussions

b) forcing the body of knowledge to be re-evaluated and re-inforced among participants

c) allowing higher-level experts to continue along their learning journey without getting bored with lower level theory (should still be involved, but able to take a step back)
