Abstract

The Holistic Teaching and Learning Podcast is presented by students in the Holistic Teaching and Learning Center (HTLC) at Southern Oregon University. Ultimately, a holistic approach to teaching is taking a step back and understanding that catering to the soul is most important. The pursuits of holistic education are compassion, wholeness, awe, wonder, and a sense of purpose. When you foster the soul of young students self-efficacy follows. When students believe that they are important and supported, the world is their oyster. The purpose of education is to bring out the best in every student and that starts with the soul.
