Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to show how to enact a Batesonian system to teaching an ecology of mind course. Design/methodology/approach – The approach develops a practical framework for teaching with examples of teaching approaches and student work. Findings – The overarching approach involves a depth‐abstraction‐abduction model. This model was used to engage students in examining a variety of transdisciplinary phenomena with emphasis on contexts, meaning, multiple perspectives, stories, relationships and systems, patterns, and epistemology. Epistemological shocks and shifts were a common occurrence. Originality/value – This work is unique in that it focuses on a course based upon the film: “An ecology of mind: a daughter's portrait of Gregory Bateson”.
