Since last week’s class, when we discussed “how people learn”, I have been wondering about my response to the question. My first response was stunned silence, followed by the thought, “what’s the right answer?” It is not like I haven’t thought about the process of learning ( although not to the degree of scholars represented by the handouts), but to be willing to shout out my thoughts in front of God,who is omniscient, the teachers, my colleagues and the devil gave me pause. Others seem to share my reluctance. What are we afraid of? We are future PhDs, professors, senior execs, scientists. The learning environment couldn’t be safer, I mean the basic requirements are “show up and speak up.” What in the name of ” Angela Davis” is going on here?
