HASTAC or Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory, recently published a learner-centered. peer-learning model. An excerpt: "Expertise is a slippery business. We teach a course, from the presumed position of, well, knowing it all. However, when you have command of your syllabus, your reading list, your schedule, your requirements, and your testing apparatus, you leave yourself, as a prof, very little room for revealing all the things you may not know. Face it, you may even be able to trick yourself into believing that you are the teacher because you have nothing left to learn."
