"... all learning does not occur at the same pace or through the same means. True learning is holistic, not segmented into discrete facts and skills applicable only to specific tasks. True learning grows in an environment of trust where students and teachers perceive a freedom to inquire and to collaborate in a common interest for whatever time it takes to achieve a level of satisfaction."
Evan Garrett, A Real Paradigm Shift,
" The Teaching Professor," January 1997.
