Description

The Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (JAEPL) provides a forum for research, theory, and classroom practices that extend beyond traditional approaches to language. This featured issue, “Leaping into Uncertainty: Teaching and Learning beyond Logic and Reason," explores the power of uncertainty. Kierkegarrd insists that we “contend with uncertainty” to find answers to important questions about our existence.

 

As the seven essays in this issue of JAEPL reveal, leaping into uncertainty can also provide answers to important questions about our teaching and learning. We open with Lynn Z. Bloom and Carla Hill who chart the risks and rewards of the “unarticulated intangibles.” Judith Beth Cohen and Carolina Mancuso separately focus on what Cohen calls the “missing body” in education. Hildy Miller and Stephanie Paterson each shift attention from the body as a whole organism to the domain of emotions.  Finally, in the last two essays, Rich Murphy and Susan Schiller address in different ways the role of uncertainty in curriculum. These essays invite us to leap into uncertainty and find there moments of learning and teaching.
