A call to advance integrative teaching and learning in higher education.
From Parker Palmer, best-selling author of The Courage to Teach, and Arthur Zajonc, professor of physics at Amherst College and director of the academic program of the Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, comes this call to revisit the roots and reclaim the vision of higher education. The Heart of Higher Education proposes an approach to teaching and learning that honors the whole human being - mind, heart, and spirit - an essential integration if we hope to address the complex issues of our time. The book offers a rich interplay of analysis, theory, and proposals for action from two educators and writers who have contributed to developing the field of integrative education over the past few decades. This book:
The Heart of Higher Education is for all who are new to the field of holistic education, all who want to deepen their understanding of its challenges, and all who want to practice and promote this vital approach to teaching and learning on their campuses.

I love Parker Palmer's work -- and yet I'm about to give up on audio books because the performer/narrators' readings are killing me. I had a hard time listening to this. Scott Woodside has a fine voice, but the way his performance is robotic. It's too evenly timed in a way that makes it hard to listen to. He sounds like he recorded himself saying 8,000,000 words and then a computer puts them together to make the narration. Each - word - is - its - own - moment - evenly - across - the - book. Wish I just went for the ebook. [Not sure the story rating has anything to do with this particular book.] Thinking its about time to cancel my audible account. Who says ped-o-gog-ee? How about ped-o-goj-ee?
Empowering, thoughtful and well worth reflection
Inspires questions and innovative thoughts about how to do things differently in higher education.
Will listen frequently as a form of self reflective feedback on ones own teaching methods.
