Educating through Movies: How Hollywood Fosters Reflection


Artigo publicado em 09/2011. Local de publicação: Creative Education


Learning through aesthetics—in which cinema is included—stimulates learner reflection. Because emotions play key roles in learning attitudes and changing behavior, teachers must impact learners’ affective domain. Since feelings exist before concepts, the affective path is a critical path to the rational process of learning. Likewise, faculty use their own emotions in teaching, so learning proper methods to address their affective side is a com- plementary way to improve their communication with students. This paper presents experiences of how to use cinema for educating emotions, among students and teachers, to foster reflection and improve teaching skills.
