Examining the Role of Discomfort in Collegiate Learning and Development
Taylor, Kari B.; Baker, Amanda R.
Journal of College Student Development, v60 n2 p173-188 Mar-Apr 2019
Scholars and practitioners alike often assume that discomfort is a necessary and productive aspect of the college experience. We used a range of theories grounded in the concept of dissonance to question these assumptions and critically analyze the role of discomfort in collegiate learning and development for today's diverse college student population. Based on this theoretical review, we provide recommendations for how collegiate educators can ensure that discomfort leads to learning and development.
