The Meaningful Learning podcast is about designing and delivering innovative experiences that provide just in time learning. It brings together a community of provocateurs 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 their community. We believe in purposeful thinking and action for positive impact on the welfare of the bio-collective.

S2E12:Learning through curiosity of the heart and the mind (ft.Bern Nicholls, Ph.D.)

In this episode of the Meaningful Learning podcast by Coconut Thinking, I speak with Bern Nicholls. Bern is a school-based researcher who focuses on creating cultures of curiosity that support students and teachers to pursue their inquiries. She embraces curiosity as the fuel for her own learning and many interests. Bern and I had an earlier conversation about adopting a more biocentric worldview and set of values to address the problems that lay ahead for the planet and all living beings. I wanted to capture more of her inspiring thoughts in this podcast. In this conversation, Bern and I discuss:

  • How it’s not either/or; it’s both/and… breaking through binaries and dualism.  
  • How curiosity is the precursor to thinking. 
  • The need for teacher agency, not just student agency.
  • The power of animals in learning and well-being. 

Join us for this episode and we look forward to your thoughts.
