Zen in the Library Classroom

As per yesterday’s post via The Innovative Library Classroom other slideshows at the conference   stumbled across  Zen in the Library Classroom by Mike Courtney @liboutreach Gives a nice overview of the dilemma to teach everything or to let the student evolve with a fascination to operate with.  The transcript for slide four, five and six nails it for me;
Searching is often nonlinear and iterative Learners: • exhibit mental flexibility and creativity • are persistent • suspend judgment on value until the larger context is better understood • are adaptable, flexible, and recognize ambiguity is beneficial • synthesize ideas
Instruction is imperfect… Students are imperfect… Assignments are imperfect…

What follows then on the slideshare are some lovely statements and quotes.

A good one and four basic tents of Wabi Sabi • Everything is in flux • To embody and suggest impermanence • Peaceful contemplation of transience • Appreciation brings holistic perspective – A. Juniper

Would have been an interesting presentation to have participated in I’m sure.
