You might find this presentation/discussion by/with Harry Lewis interesting. It touches on several of our course themes. Do note that you can speed it up with the button in the middle of the playbar.

I'm now reading a book called Group Genius, by Keith Sawyer, the featured speaker at the Active Learning Retreat held last week. He conceives of learning like a collaboration of jazz musicians or performance of an improvisation theater group or like a well functioning team on a basketball court. I wonder if any of you have had such an experience and feeling (it is called Flow) and if you've had it in the context of any courses you've taken.

I thought this piece interesting and relevant. Some of you at the beginning of the course thought about effective change in political terms. Perhaps we should have explored that more.
