“To say that the purpose of colleges is to provide instruction is like saying that General Motor’s business is to operate assembly lines or that the purpose of medical care is to fill hospital beds. We now see that our mission is not instruction but rather that of producing learningwith every student by whatever means works best.”
Barr and Tagg
“The learning college places learning first and provides educational experience for learners anyway, anyplace, anytime.”
“ If after spending a glorious two weeks at a health spa, a satisfied client steps onto a scale and hasn’t lost a pound, he has not achieved his learning-centered goal of losing five extra pounds, while paying dearly for a learner-centered experience.”
“Everyone involved with the college, including the president, will learn continuously how to improve learning.”
Myram, Zeiss, Howdyshell
