Official Book Launch
Wednesday, June 18, 2008 at the University of Windsor
The latest publication by the Council of 3M National Teaching Fellows explores
many of the silences that inhabit teaching and learning—the deep silence
shrouding what is not said, the stifling silence of those who do not have a say, those magical silences when the most meaningful learning can occur.
Silences in teaching and learning is a groundbreaking book that has stepped outside of traditional academic writing, research, expertise. The very nature of silence and its resistance to language; the fact that this is a nascent topic within the academy; the editorial request that the writers write in an unconventional form and style; this is a risk-taking book.
