Double illusion of transparency

5 bytes added, 23:46, 5 November 2018
In educational or explanatory settings, the '''double illusion of transparency''' is a version of the [[illusion of transparency]]. It refers to a situation where the '''[[Explainer|teacher''' ]] (the person who is doing the teaching or explaining) , as well as the '''[[learner''' ]] (the person who is doing the listening or understanding), both falsely believe that that the '''material''' (that is being explained) is being understood as originally intended. Explicitly:
* The teacher believes that the learner is understanding the material correctly.
* In fact, both sides are communicating in a manner where each is affirming to the other person that the process of explaining and understanding is proceeding smoothly.
* However, the learner is not understanding the material correctly in the manner intended by the teacher.
