The Meaningful Learning podcast is about designing and delivering innovative experiences that provide just in time learning. It brings together a community of educators who understand that learning is both a personal and a social experience, and can only be meaningful if it has an impact on the learner and her/his community. How we can prepare students for the present and the future, to cultivate their value of learning for itself, and be caring, kind human beings who make a difference in the world?

S1E2: Learning Through the Arts, the Body, and the Natural World

Dr. Rena Upitis is a Professor of Education at Queen’s University. She has authored or co-authored 10 books and over 100 peer-reviewed articles. Her research and curriculum projects have explored teacher, artist, and student transformation through the arts. Rena herself is a musician, visual artist, and timber-frame carpenter. Oh yeah, and she lives off-grid!

In this podcast, Rena talks about how:

  • we learn best when we are emotionally-connected to questions that matter,
  • there are multiple paths for joy in post-secondary life, 
  • some children are learning more under lockdown than in schools.
