Tuesdays with Jane: Week #17

(Tuesdays with Jane is a virtual learning series for those wishing to read or re-read Jane's books and immediately apply their new learning to their workplace. In preparation for this task, read Chapter 16 of Learning to Listen, Learning to Teach.)

Reviewing the Twelve Principles and Quantum Thinking

This is a great chapter, offering a multitude of examples featuring all of the principles and the entire quantum thinking concepts. This chapter can be read again and again!

Some great lines from Chapter Sixteen:

  • “Respect for the who informs our designs in dialogue education.” p227
  • “It takes time for roles to change and for safety to work its magic towards honest dialogue.” p230
  • “…the root of [the word] doctor is the Latin verb docere, which means ‘to teach.’” p231
  • “Praxis—action with reflection—is more than practice.” p232
  • “When you invite ‘a chorus of conversations’ in lieu of your own monologue, when you invite learners to find their own voice and not listen only to yours, you invite a quantum leap into learning.” p238
  • “Our job in adult education is not to cover a set of course materials, but to engage adults in effective and significant learning.” p238


You did it! You spent some Tuesdays with Jane and reviewed Learning to Listen Learning to Teach. Tell me, please, what use this has been to you.
