      Abstract

      Could we make our teaching and learning a process based on love and enchantment – love not as a flaccid feel-good generality, nor as a substitute for rigour nor as an excuse for mediocrity, but love as a way of engendering in our students and our colleagues, and (crucially) maintaining in ourselves, an unwavering commitment to the process of growth through learning? When we learn, we become greater, more capable, more resilient. Perhaps the greatest gift we can offer our students is that they take that knowledge with them through their entire lives.

      Put simply, our approach to education might be: “OK, you’ve had your fun, now let’s have some fun.”
