IACE Hall of Fame Repository

Some of these documents, however, present aspects of the events and ideas which recount the years and contexts in which they appeared in published form.

Research On The Use Of Learning And Degree Contracts Within University And Other Settings In Italy And The Usa, John A. Henschke Edd

IACE Hall of Fame Repository

This paper presents some of the benefits of using learning contracts by some in the USA who have used them for many years, and others in Italy who had never used them, but were beginning to experiment with using them.

There is a very different perspective between using them over a long period of time and just beginning to use them. However, the keenest insight is that they are beneficial at each stage along the way ...
