Discovering the power of good questions
There’s a reason I’ve worked my entire professional life in higher education.
That’s the best place I’ve found for “not-knowing.” Counter-intuitive, isn’t it, if we think of a university or college only as a place for narrow, specialized knowledge (a set of disciplines)? If instead we think of a university as a community of learners and creators of knowledge (students, faculty and staff), and not-knowing as the essential starting place for all learning and knowledge creation . . . then what better place for me?
For some, not-knowing creates an uncomfortable, uncertain place. For me, this place is where I have the most personal freedom and control, because I have the power to ask questions. My life’s work is to discover and explore good questions about learning. Hopefully, some of that work will happen here.
