Transforming Learning and Teaching

Heuristics for Educative and Responsible Practices

Series: 

Volume Editors: Kenneth Tobin and Konstantinos Alexakos
This book consists of 19 chapters on heuristics written by 21 diverse researchers. Heuristics are reflexive tools, designed to heighten awareness of actions and thereby afford reflection and other contemplative activities that can catalyze desired changes. The 33 heuristics provided in the book have been produced, revised, and adapted in more than two decades of scholarship.

Six key foci are addressed in Transforming Learning and Teaching: Heuristics for Educative and Responsible Practices with respect to heuristics: teaching and learning, learning to teach, emotions, wellness, contemplative activities, and harmony.

The book is an ideal resource for researchers in education and the social sciences, and an excellent text for graduate level courses in which research, professional development and transformative change are goals.
