Title: What I Tell You Two Times Is True


1
What I Tell You Two Times Is True
Man is unique, not because he does science and
not because he does art, but because science and
art equally are expressions of his mind.

Jacob Bronowski
  • Four Questionable Principles in Search of
    Deeply Significant Learning

By deeply significant learning, we mean learning
which actually changes our thinking, our
attitudes, our sense of what is possible, even
our sense of who we are and who we can be, if we
choose.
Open Letter to OCU Community
Hence, our focus on these seven over-arching key
words and phrases
imagination perception
creativity interdisciplinary thinking
knowledge integration leadership
the arts

Disciplines as lenses
  • The value of multiple lenses
  • The particular value of the arts as one of your
    lenses for thinking, teaching and learning

The arts…
One purpose of art is to alter the quality of
our attentiveness -- to enhance, refresh and
sharpen our awareness. JJC
The purpose of art is to lay bare the questions
that have been hidden by the answers.
James Baldwin
Artists capture our attention and awareness and
move us to internal process, to perception at the
level of imaginative experience which is thus
credible, vital and evocative of possible
futures. JJC Aesthetic knowledge is an intu
itive knowledge of the possible, rather and more
than of the true, and aesthetic communication is
not so much the account of that which has
happened as the prompting of that which might
happen or might be. Gagliardi

Disciplines as lenses
  • The processes of induction and transfer
  • Induction in science and in the arts
  • Metaphors and inductive process
  • Metaphors as mini-lenses
  • Metaphors and Transfer
  • Transfer and learning

6
Disciplines and metaphors as lenses
  • A strategy of optimization and enrichment for
    triggering depth perception and learning
  • Designing into our courses learning experiences
    a rich collection of conceptual lenses
    resonances
  • via complementary disciplines and metaphors a
  • Resonance in Design

Resonance in Design
  • What I Tell you Three Times Is True
  • Our task is to help create multi-dimensional,
    meaningful and palpable gestalts …that, plus a
    love of learning and nothing less than the
    beginning of wisdom.

Four Questionable Principles (or
Questionables, as I often like to call them)
A Questionable an idea which should be
questioned and, having been questioned, may
transform itself into a guiding principle with
your own personal stamp upon it or not.
  • Transfer in all directions
  • Double description
  • Radiance
  • Optimism

Transfer in all directions Questionable 1
  • Each thing that we learn, each learning
    experience that we have, ripples its effects
    through future and past learnings.
  • It is inevitable, ecological in scope, unknowable
    in any detail, uncontrollable, almost always
    surprising, essentially mysterious.
  • It is a process which must be trusted, not
    managed, catalyzed not controlled, and operates
    as within a complex dynamic system.

10
Transfer in all directions Questionable 1
  • Direct transfer
  • Skills transfer and Habits of Excellence
  • Indirect transfer
  • Transfer learning in complex living systems
    through vast and subtle webs of possible
    connections
  • Emergence and contingency

11
Transfer in all directions Questionable 1
  • Indirect transfer
  • Constraining and enabling effects optimizing the
    process
  • Strong on enrichment and openings to possible
    paths
  • Light on managed choices and extrinsic rewards
    systems
  • Strong on invitation, camaraderie and risk-free
    experimentation

12
Transfer in all directions Questionable 1
  • Indirect transfer
  • Connecting our personal inner worlds to the world
    scaffolding of archetypal verities
  • an illustration of essence
  • via Resonance in Design
  • Setting minds and hearts in wondrous transfer
    motion where the inner work of art is ours to
    perform

13
Transfer in all directions Questionable
1
  • Metaphor
  • A bridge for the transfer of attributes from one
    form of description to another
  • my love is like a red, red rose
  • A mapping of one idea upon another for
    comparison, clarification or elaboration
  • come to think of it, my love is more like a
    nightingale, a summers day or a gazelle

14
Transfer in all directions Questionable
1
  • Metaphor as Strategy
  • Often only a combination of several metaphors
    will do the trick
  • to add dimension, life-like quality, emotional
    and imaginative appeal
  • In other words, we optimize the transfer of
    living-breathing bits of insight from one or more
    sources into one improvised gestalt

15
Transfer in all directions Questionable 1
  • Metaphor
  • The logic of metaphor as the logic of induction
  • Induction from multiple observations to general
    principle
  • Induction the light and the way of modernity in
    science (Bacon)
  • Setting the inductive process in motion
  • You make two statements what is true of both of
    them is the formal truth (Bateson)
  • Creative juxtaposition
  • Metaphor as creative juxtaposition
  • Metaphor as double description
  • Double description and interdisciplinarity

Double description Questionable 2
  • This was Gregory Batesons name for
  • interdisciplinary thinking
  • Double description and binocular vision
  • Joining two monocular views
  • The bonus of insight and the experience of
    depth
  • Double description and interdisciplinarity
  • The bonus of insight and the experience of
    depth
  • Double description and the arts
  • The bonus of insight and the experience of
    depth

17
Double description Questionable 2
  • It is the essence of metaphoric thinking
  • It is the driving force of the transfer principle

  • As a design principle, it takes the form of
    creative juxtaposition
  • It underlies the basic concept of consilience
  • Consilience as a jumping together of disparate
    facts or ideas into a common structure of
    explanation the consilience of induction.

Transfer in all directions
Man is unique, not because he does science and
not because he does art, but because science and
art equally are expressions of his mind.

Radiance Questionable 3
  • This means alive in the idea personally
    discovered (Vico and the Science of
    Imagination)
  • It underscores that teaching, leading and
    communicating are essentially performative and
    must be enacted as true exemplars, that is, fully
    authentic and fully present.
  • It means embodying the idea beneath the word,
    beneath the image, living the idea deeply known.

Optimism Questionable 4
  • This means that life is about hope, that
    positivity is essential to learning.
  • It means that the radiant affirmative dynamic
    which enlivens the arts can enliven each of us as
    makers and appreciators of art and as people who
    live artfully, passionately and well.
  • It means that optimism in leaders, teachers and
    artists is importantly self-enabling and also
    empowering to others.
