Formatted Abstract/Summary
In this chapter, a number of conclusions are drawn about the kind of ‘ethical imagination’ that can be generated when skilful and committed teachers work inside and outside classrooms to create values dialogue using story and reflection. The chapter expands on current work in the area of ‘learning for sustainability’ and suggests why a blend of environmental narrative and deep reflection seems so effective in developing a personal sense of ‘wellbeing’ in students that produces deep learning and positive improvements in knowledge, values, attitudes and behaviour. It will be based on an extended history of professional engagement with teachers and students through the Pullenvale Environmental Education Centre in Queensland, Australia, as well as scholarly inquiry into the forms of narrative and place-based pedagogy that emerged from this prolonged professional engagement. The power of story as an educational methodology is well documented. Bruner described story as one of the two ways that human beings learn about reality. Kieran Egan has written extensively about the power of narrative in education as a cultural universal that allows us to make sense of our experience in the world and to infuse it with meaning.
