The Social Conquest of General Education
Helfand, David J.
Journal of General Education, v62 n1 p43-51 2013
The dominant model of university education featuring one-way communication in a desocialized setting that celebrates competition is fundamentally at odds with the evolutionarily attuned attributes of the human brain. Quest University Canada represents an alternative of engaged, collaborative learning that builds on the eusocial nature of our species. (Contains 3 notes.)
