Alchemy In Education: Towards A Preschool Model In College Classrooms, Brad Van Alstyne Jan 2010

Alchemy In Education: Towards A Preschool Model In College Classrooms, Brad Van Alstyne

Collected Faculty and Staff Scholarship

Education has long been a necessary, yet standardized procedure with little difference from program to program or school to school.

I also contend that an alchemical metaphor would be useful in the application and acknowledgement of the value of such an approach.
