Vrain Waves: Teaching Conversations with Minds Shaping Education

You're Not Listening with Kate Murphy

Episode Summary

Listening is one of those skills that always gets a lot of philosophical and moral attention but not a ton of practical attention. Kate Murphy’s new book, You’re Not Listening: What You’re Missing and Why It Matters, is an exception, providing an in-depth look at why listening is important for our lives and what we get out of it. The book itself is a call to action, urging the reader to stop missing out on opportunities for lack of listening. As educators, we should be proud of our listening practice, and we hope this interview with Kate Murphy helps you re-center the importance of listening in your pedagogy and beyond. Enjoy!
