Abstract

Abstract In this essay, I advocate for a broader and inclusive understanding of knowing and knowledge. I borrow from the field of Nursing and the accepted ways of knowing based on the seminal work done by Professor Barbara Carper (1978) and Chin and Kramer’s (2008) in addition to the fundamental patterns of knowing in nursing education. I translate and transform this work to argue for the acceptance of a framework for multiple ways of knowing in teaching and learning. I encourage the academic academy, to reflect on the multiple ways of knowing and in turn accept that all knowing is not about empirics, and excellent teachers have aesthetic knowing and are engaged in the scholarship of teaching and learning.
