Michael Kroth and Davin Carr-Chellman from the U of I College of Education, Health and Human Sciences will discuss profound learning, the act of learning from experiences that have an impact on a person’s view of the world, during the presentation at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb 21, at the River Room at Whole Foods, 401 S. Broadway St., Boise.

Kroth and Carr-Chellman will ask participants to immerse themselves into what is most important in life, what has lasting value, and what will contribute to making everything they do more meaningful. During the session, participants will spend time thinking about the important questions of life and ideas about how to explore them.
