An academic journal devoted its summer issue to exploring a variety of educational initiatives that incorporate the principles and practices of the Circle of Trust approach as developed by Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal.
Transformational teaching and learning are possible only within a space that encourages participation of the whole self—our hopes and dreams, as well as our doubts and fears. Such teaching and learning require a space where vulnerability is valued and not knowing is embraced as an essential step on the learning journey.
An academic journal devoted its summer issue to exploring a variety of educational initiatives that incorporate the principles and practices of the Courage & Renewal approach as developed by Parker J. Palmer and the Center for Courage & Renewal.
New Directions for Teaching and Learning – Special Issue: Teaching and Learning from the Inside Out: Revitalizing Ourselves and Our Institutions, Number 130, Summer 2012 (Wiley Periodicals, Inc., A Wiley Company, 2012) was edited by Courage & Renewal facilitator Margaret Golden, Ed.D., associate professor and director of The Courage to Teach Initiative in the School of Education and Counseling Psychology at Dominican University of California.
“Even though most in higher education started with feelings of hope and passion for their subject and for teaching, these feelings can sometimes be lost over time as political battles, accreditation issues, state mandates, and problems with people take center stage,” writes editor-in-chief Catherine M. Wehlburg . “This volume of NDTL helps to remind us that the connections we have with ourselves, our students, our colleagues, and our disciplines are truly important and meaningful–and should take precedence over these other smaller issues.”
The journal explores the transformative power of engaging in a Circle of Trust and the research being done by the facilitators of this work.
