From a colleague

So much of what we put in A New Culture of Learning turns out to be really easy to apply in the classroom.  It is just a matter of rethinking the space and putting a lot of already available resources to use.

I was thrilled to get a note from a colleague who had done just that:
Hi Doug- just wanted to say how much I love your new book- I read it in a single inspired sitting and immediately re-imagined my lecture that day - instead of mostly my material, I made the lecture into a collage of comments from the students weekly blog posts that turned the auditorium into one big discussion-- it energized the room and was best class we've had all semester.  so thanks
Feels good to know that this stuff works!
