Love and Pedagogy

"Love and Pedagogy" is led by Michael Donovan and Jo-Ann Larkins. This about Indigenous teaching methods, and the philosophy behind them; and about how some of our latest greatest Western ideas are beginning to scratch the surface of the holistic understanding in Indigenous cultures. It's about partnerships in learning. It comes from a view of the nature of learning where the interaction in the learning experience should involve everyone from learner to teacher and is a pathway of shared understandings.

Michael Donovan is a Gumbaynggir man from the north coast of NSW who grew up in Sydney. He is a teacher and educational researcher based at Macquarie University. Jo-Ann Larkins is a statistician, mathematics educator and science communicator based at Federation University.
