Thank you for visiting Unconditional Learning! This is the blog of Alex Shevrin Venet – you can learn more about me here. Below, please find information about the philosophy behind Unconditional Learning and some places to get started reading on the blog.
I am deeply motivated by the concept of unconditional positive regard in education. Alfie Kohn’s essay “Unconditional Teaching” captures the essence of unconditional acceptance in schools. I spoke about what unconditional positive regard means to me in an EdTalk at the MTA Summer Institute a few years ago. I write more about the idea here. To me, unconditional positive regard the the foundation for creating the schools we need for every student.
