TAR concept described in National Academy of Sciences Paper

I am attending a teaching and learning workshop in the geosciences focused on learning about complex systems.  One of the presenters, Bruce Grant (Departments of Biology and Environmental Science, Widener University), shared his use of teaching as research to guide his own craft on this challenging learning issue.

Bruce recently completed a special report to the National Academy of Sciences report which is useful.
