Confronting one's lack of knowledge can be terrifying. I believe it is my job as a professor to take students to the edge of their knowing and provide enough support that they are willing to take a leap into the unknown. I believe knowledge to be socially constructed and unique to each lens. Therefore, I structure my classrooms to provide optimal community learning and self-reflection. True knowledge acquisition should directly relate to changed behavior and thinking.
