Rich learning experiences

The idea of a rich learning experience resonates with me as something we should strive for.

Doing of survey of your classmates and their eating habits may help you learn something. Interviewing them face to face you might learn more. It’s a two way conversation, which makes it a richer experience.

Observing them at home, at the grocery store and interviewing them at their kitchen table feels like the pinnacle of richness. Interestingly, it’s also the best recipe for empathy.

Maybe rich learning experiences are empathetic learning experiences. Maybe that should be our goal.
