The Quest for Meaning: Teaching, Learning and the Arts presents a narrative, arts-based approach to pedagogy and research in higher education. Through narratives of experience, the book offers revealing, poignant examples of the transformative power of the arts and of narrative inquiry in learners’ lives, and of the centrality of story in their ongoing quest for meaning.
My first story as a freelancer at the CBC radio’s show DNTO (Definitely Not the Opera) will air this Saturday at some point between 2-4pm (probably closer to the start). Alternatively, as of Monday March 15th the broadcast will be posted online here: http://www.cbc.ca/dnto. It can also be downloaded off iTunes.
The topic this week is “On the Phone”. It will explore how we change when we’re on the phone and how we use phon
es as a tool, beyond basic communication.
Here is the blurb about my story from their site: “When Carly Stasko was being treated for cancer she had no idea that a phone message would be an integral part of her cure. She’ll tell us her story.”
I hope you can check it out – I’m really excited about this! And please, let me know what you think!

Tears of Joy in Calculus Class
Carly Stasko once laughed so hard she cried… and improved her calculus grade. She’ll tell us about the secret power of tears.
Maybe it’s from sadness, or joy, or just because that dog food commercial is really moving. What makes you cry… and what are you saying through your tears?[audio:https://intrinsik.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Carly-on-DNTO-crying-in-calculus.mp3]
