The Courage to Learn: Honoring the Complexity of Learning for Educators and Students

Thursday, October 19, 2023 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Mann Library, 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

It takes openness and true bravery to be able to learn, according to Marcia Eames-Sheavly, senior extension associate and senior lecturer emerita in the School of Integrative Plant Science, Horticulture Section.

In a live, hybrid (in-person and livestreamed) Chats in the Stacks book talk, Eames-Sheavly will discuss her new co-authored book The Courage to Learn: Honoring the Complexity of Learning for Educators and Students (Stylus Publishing, 2023). Eames-Sheavly will explore the work’s implications for educational practice, how to help find and nurture courage in learners, as well as ask the audience to engage in conversation around these fundamental questions: How do we learn? Why is it necessary? What motivates us? And, who is the self that learns?

Please note that both in-person and Zoom participants will be offered the opportunity to engage and participate in reflection and conversation with others.

This talk is hosted by Mann Library. Light refreshments will be served
