Academic+Professional Practice

  1. 1. <ul><li>“ All the time my ideal of teaching has been to argue with people on behalf of the idea that they are responsible for their own activities, that they are really, in a sense, the question, that ultimately they are what it is they have to contribute. The most critical part of that is for them to begin developing the ability to assign their own tasks and make their own criticism in direct relation to their own needs and not in light of some abstract criteria. Because once you learn how to make your own assignment instead of relying on someone else, then you have learned the only thing you really need to get out of school, that is, you’ve learned how to learn.” Robert Irwin </li></ul>
