Of all the topics that this course brought up, I'd been most knowledgeable about educational borrowing and lending. The other topics resonated with me and gave me much to think about. First, what is education/learning? How do we define and measure it? Does ed necessarily have to be "institutionalized"? This alone sends my mind spinning. As if it was not enough, we went into exploring holistic education and sustainability. I think the two areas are pretty much related - while being a whole person applies, first of all, to an individual, being sustainable is more about society. How do we bring these into our learning/teaching/program design/research? I don't know yet but I'm starting having ideas. Hats off to Anna.
