Anastasia P. Samaras


This study explores the value of co-creative play spaces for faculty professional learning and development. Data are drawn from the researchers’ coauthored publications, which utilized arts-inspired data generation modes. The pluralist methodological route and analysis results in design elements for professional learning captured through rich pictures, poetry, and dialogue. Resonances are shown between what has emerged from polyvocal self-study design elements and Brown’s guideposts for wholehearted living. Implications for faculty wholehearted professional living are offered.
