Editorial Reviews

"In her role as a pedagogical curator, Elizabeth Ellsworth astutely takes an array of sources, which she fashions as convincing evidence in an argument that challenges our very conceptions of learning and knowledge. And like a thoughtful curator she does more than describe ensembles, or represent and interpret emergent themes. Rather, she offers a site for remaking our ideas of what we see and feel in the presence of learning."-Graeme Sullivan, Art Education, Teachers College Columbia University "At this moment when educators and designers are rediscovering the importance of direct experience and knowledge-making, Elizabeth Ellsworth presents very important information and insights. This book is a must read for leaders in design, education, and beyond."-Dorothy Dunn, Head of Education, Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum
