Appendix C: Passionate Learning:
A Case of Reflective Learning

Purpose of session
To enable participants to realize their learning through holistic storytelling. The title 'passionate' refers to the third rather neglected domain of learning, the emotions. The session invites participants to access their feeling domain before considering the other two domains of doing and thinking. This departs from most learning experiences in the western world where thinking and doing come before emotion or even exclude it.
Session objectives
On completion participants will have :
1. told a story about their experience;
2. engaged in reflective dialogue about their experience;
3. realized their learning from that experience.

Timing: one hour

Method: Participants will work in pairs, taking turns as 'learner' and 'reviewer'.

The session is designed to offer participants a brief insight into the significance of reflective dialogue in deep learning. Participants are invited to realize their learning in the three domains of feeling, thinking and doing, through holistic story-telling. Working in pairs, as learner and reviewer, learners revisit an experience, first through the feeling evinced by the event; secondly through the new understanding which occurred; and thirdly through their actions. Hence the three learning domains of feeling, knowing and doing, are explored through the process of reflective dialogue with a reviewer. Session details and guidance to reviewers are given below.
