Roominess for learning

20 Minute Presentation


Margaret Macintyre Latta – UBC Okanagan


Drawing across my current SSHRC Partnership Development Grant concerning professional knowledge and another research project with a local alternative middle school concerning curricular enactment, this paper explores the roominess needed for genuine learning. The nature and roles of the needed space and time for learning roominess fostering individual/collective deliberations, intuitions, anticipations, new ideas and enlarged realizations, are made more visible and tangible for all involved.
