Episode 26: Embracing Dissonance in Learning and Teaching with Dr. Maureen Connolly
In this episode, we speak with Dr. Maureen Connolly about the value of dissonance in post-secondary learning and teaching. A 3M National Teaching Fellow, Dr. Connolly discusses how her pedagogy focuses on cycles of change: changing knowledge, changing methods of learning and teaching, and a learning environment that is designed to move students out of habitual behaviors and habits of thought. The emergence of Generative Artificial Intelligence is also a moment of dissonance for both educators and learners, and Dr. Connolly offers advice for thinking through how we might respond to the challenges that it occasions.
