Tisdell advocates a way of teaching that is learner-centered, responsive to cultural identity, and socially transformative. In this kind of teaching, spirituality is always part of the mix, and the spirituality of many students is rooted in religion. The role of the teacher is to allow the diversity within the classroom, including the cultural and spiritual diversity of students, to enhance the learning process. Such learning almost always involves paradox, however, as secular and spiritual approaches interact.
