Immense learning happens when we are looking in no one particular direction or one discipline or subject area. The willingness to surrender to learning in various dimensions creates the space for transformation. By surrendering to the unknown, we create the space for a deeper knowing to emerge. A teacher or facilitator must work on themselves to allow for such deeper knowing to emerge in multi- dimensional interactions. It is when a teacher or facilitator creates space through unconditioning their teaching and learning habits, the learner can grow and develop in emotional, psychological realms with an outcome for social transformation. Science and Science Education can very effectively create such multidimensional experiences in engagement with art and design. Interdisciplinary work blurs the boundaries of known knowledge and allows knowledge construction through learning journeys in unknown realms. In the heart of the unknown, the paths to be walked reveal themselves.
In this workshop, Madhulika will guide educators on how to create a space conducive to learning.
