The Heart of Higher Education: A recall to renewal

PALMER, Parker J. & ZAJONC, Arthur. The heart of Higher Education: A call to renewal. 2010. New York: Jossey-Bass.

This book is a call to advance holistic, integrative teaching and learning in higher education by revisiting the roots and reclaiming the vision of higher education.

The Heart of Higher Education proposes an approach to teaching and learning that honors the whole human being to address the complex issues of our time. The book offers a rich interplay of analysis, theory, and proposals for action. It presents a powerful response to critics of holistic learning and an elucidation of the relationship between science, the humanities, and the contemplative traditions and explores ways to making colleges and universities places that awaken the deepest potential in students, faculty and staff. Furthermore, it offers a practical approach to fostering renewal in higher education through collegiality and conversation.
