What is depth education?

In the fifth week of the online course, Sensing Harm by Design, the Gesturing Towards Decolonial Futures Collective introduces the concept of depth education, using the imagery of a mountain and viewing it from different perspectives to illustrate how depth education is differentiated from its counterpart: mastery education. Instead of attempting to conquer a peak, depth education encourages us to engage with the affective and relational, to approach learning from the gut, decluttering the noise and composting the shit.
