Sparks of possibility (Wk 4 #1 EDM613)
Rosamund Zander, in The Art of Possibility, defines the term "enrollment" as "the art and practice of generating a spark of possibility for others to share" (p. 125). I am not sure there is a better term or definition to describe the art of teaching as this one does. While I know that I do not actually light the sparks in my students as much as I would like, I am pretty sure that they appreciate the energy and enthusiasm necessary to generate those sparks nonetheless.
