Can a teacher be self-taught? If you were to send a prospective teacher-to-be out into the world to think about and explore learning and teaching, what three questions would you pose for them to help guide that odyssey?


The Possible’s Slow Fuse is a scholarly dialogue series organized by the Centre for Imagination in Research, Culture & Education (CIRCE) and the Research Hub of the Faculty of Education. Our 2019 series offers six stimulating discussions about the nature and role of imagination in research and education, facilitated by scholars from diverse fields in education–arts, indigeneity, technology, teacher education, mathematics, and aesthetics. We invite you to bring your ideas and questions, and share and celebrate learning and discovery together. Learn more
