Your daily nugget of wisdom, wit, and ways to succeed

“Some [students] told me that they never had any stimulating teachers, yet they managed to learn deeply and to emerge as adaptive and creative people. They remained active learners, no matter what the instructor did. They formulated big questions, even if the professor didn’t … Most important, they explored actively outside of class, reading and thinking, searching and contemplating. ‘With the internet, the possibilities are almost endless,’ one person said. They took control of their own education and remained ultimately responsible for its content and quality.” — Ken Bain in “What the Best College Students Do”
