Knowing the Path and Walking the Path

In their article "Seven Principles for Good Practice in Undergraduate Education," Arthur Chickering and Zelda Gamson suggest that the educator's role is to offer support to students while creating opportunities for them to critically examine and take responsibility for their own experiences. In this article, the authors explore methods for balancing such support and challenge, using the characters of the 1999 film "The Matrix" as a guide. The authors believe that balanced partnerships between students and educators can encourage and sustain campus environments filled with possibilities for growth, learning, and development.
