“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

The New Learning Architect

I'm just waiting for Amazon to deliver this book by Clive Shepherd, mainly because I am wondering if it might provide a genuine update on some of Carl Rogers' ideas about creating the most effective environment for learning, as well as providing the language for talking to instutions about how to make learning happen in their organisation beyond formally-provided courses (especially as some research shows that this is only about 10% of how we learn). I'm very interested to discover what Clive says about how the facilitator should BE in his model, something that Carl Rogers showed was key to significant learning taking place. Come on, postie!
