The Learning Space

"Dialogue education is about creating a learning space in which learners feel a sense of belonging and inclusion. It is a profound thing to be treated as someone who belongs -- with a voice and a right to take part in your own learning -- regardless of content or curriculum."
--Jane Vella (from On Teaching and Learning: Putting the Principles and Practices of Dialogue Education into Action, 2008)

Do you typically feel a sense of belonging in your learning space (classroom or online)? What helps you to feel that you belong? What helps you to feel included? Do you contribute to others' feelings of belonging and inclusion?

Cheering you on in your work!
