Patrick Finn on the importance of Loving Thinking

Patrick sets up the rehearsal for The Extinction Therapist Beakerhead rehearsal session

Patrick Finn is an incredibly inspiring prof, and we’re lucky to have him here at UCalgary.

His work on helping to transition from critical to loving thinking is extremely important. I’ve watched his TEDxYYC talk a few times, and revisited it again after this week’s Beakerhead theatre workshop rehearsal of The Extinction Therapist – an event led by Patrick, with actors presenting their early interpretation of Clem Martini‘s unfinished script. The play was interesting, weird, and thought-provoking – all things we need more of.

Dee Fink’s keynote at #TICONF2015

Dee Fink, giving the opening keynote presentation at the 2015 University of Calgary Conference on Postsecondary Learning and Teaching. The theme of the 2015 conference is Design for Learning: Fostering Deep Learning, Engagement and Critical Thinking.

We hadn’t planned to record the keynote, but Dee asked us if we would, so we set something up that morning. The video is usable, but we’ll be producing higher quality recordings for future events…
