"What makes a great teacher great? Who are the professors students remember long after graduation? The short answer is - it's not what teachers do, it's what they understand."

~Ken Bain,
What the Best College Teachers Do



"Learning is a social process that occurs through interpersonal interaction within a cooperative context. Individuals, working together, construct shared understandings and knowledge."

~David Johnson, Roger Johnson and Karl Smith,
Active Learning: Cooperation in the College Classroom



"Learning is not so much an additive process, with new learning simply piling up on top of existing knowledge, as it is an active, dynamic process in which the connections are constantly changing and the structure reformatted."

~K. Patricia Cross,
Adults as Learners: Increasing Participation and Facilitating Learning



"Everyone agrees that students learn in college, but whether they learn to think is more controversial."

~Bill McKeachie,
Teaching Tips: Strategies, Research and Theory for College and University Teachers
