About the Series

Classrooms are to be safe spaces, we’re told. Yet educators working within complex realms, where the tensions and discomforts of human experience offer no safe havens, know that deep learning often elicits strong feelings. Created by Dr. Tara Mayer and presented by the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies, On Feeling and Knowing, is a series of seven recorded conversations with seasoned educators working at the creative frontiers of their disciplines. Their insights reveal what classrooms of higher education were traditionally conceived to be and what they can become. These conversations aren’t prescriptions or guidelines, but generous and candid reflections by educators daring to disrupt educational norms, in search of deeper and more diverse pathways to knowledge.
