He may have been teaching the Jedi way for 800 years, but even the wise Master Yoda never stopped learning and Dan Zehr takes a look at his openness to learning during the tumultuous days of The Clone Wars.

While Yoda’s knowledge and experience are essential aspects of what makes him such a well-respected instructor, there is one key ingredient that puts him over the top: his willingness to learn. Teachers should strive to be lifelong learners if they hope to grow in their respective craft, and Yoda knows that better than anyone. In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, this willingness to discover more about the Force and himself takes him to the swamp planet of Dagobah, at the prompting of the disembodied voice of Qui-Gon Jinn. It is on this planet where Yoda begins a path to self-discovery and learns of the Living Force and the Cosmic Force.

On this epic adventure, Yoda encounters Force Priestesses, a dark side shadow of himself, a phantasmic version of Darth Bane on the planet Moraband, and duels Darth Sidious on a mystical plane. Each test is difficult, as well as physically and mentally exerting. Yoda is put in a position where the rules and limits are unknown, and it is undeniably much different than what the Jedi Master is used to.
