Here is my dear husband, Director of the Learning Commons at NC State University. I'm so proud of him! Well, The Commons is pretty cool too, I guess.
"He'd fooled us. He'd been learning all along--we just hadn't been able to see it because it didn't follow from our "teaching." It came from doing, sharing, and observing, from osmotically absorbing what was around him. I recalled that he once said to Mark, who was giving him snowboard instruction, "Dad, would you stop trying to teach me and just let me learn?"
