Excerpt: One of the tangible benefits of the increased attention given to teaching and learning in recent years has been the increased number of books published in this area. Many of these books are focused on specific topics such as collaborative learning, assessment, teaching first-year students, service learning, or teaching in specific disciplines. But very few books focus on what the anthropologist and systems thinker Gregory Bateson described in Mind and Nature as “the patterns which connect” teaching and learning. It is exactly those patterns that The Way of the Teacher focuses on, which makes reading this book a very unique experience.
