Pedagogy of listening
Listening involves giving attention to others that goes beyond the hearing of sound. To listen requires mindfulness – being present in the here and now. To be present means to be focused on what is happening right now and to be open to and see the possibilities among the people, the space, and the materials within the environment. This requires “the openness and sensitivity to listen and be listened to – listening not just with our ears, but with all of our senses (sight, touch, smell, taste, orientation) (Rinaldi, 2008, p.65). Listening needs time – time to be silent, to pause and to listen to ourselves.
