Although I have not read the book and therefore cannot comment on its content, I teach at a community college and have been exposed to the "learning college" model of education. I was skeptical because the term itself, "learning college," is redundant. As a colleague of mine, a veteran of the U.S. armed services, once quipped, "I guess you could say I was in the Flying Air Force." While we should all acknowledge that the student and his or her education should be the first-and-last order of business, what our administration was trying to do did not bode well for the quality of the education itself. For instance, the so-called "learning college" would standardize education to the point that my English comp course should be exactly like another's, and I mean exactly. In other words, if a student needed to change from my MWF comp class because of his work schedule, he could shift into another teacher's TTh class without problem. That looks like a good idea on paper, but what does that mean to the individual character of a course? Such a scenario is on the face of it student-centered, but to achieve such a reality is to standardize the life right out of your institution. One teacher's course is just like another because all we're doing, in this model, is "delivering content." Teaching a course is not like working on an assembly line.
