Open peer commentary on the article “Constructivism, Fast Thinking, Heuristics and Sustainable Development” by Hugh Gash. Abstract: I examine the opportunities and challenges in focusing on heuristics and testimony as a means to deconstruct thinking about sustainable development. Also, I posit the use of the Visual Cues pedagogic approach as a means to reveal heuristic thinking pathways, and to engage learners in deeper introspection of their own and others’ perspectives, beliefs, and ethical-values bases vis-à-vis sustainability.
