"Charles Wedemeyer: scholar, author, teacher, administrator, internationalist, philosopher and creator of the ideas of open education and distance education. . . . [He was] a man who engineered a new educational system that would give opportunity for those whose only chance to learn was, 'at the back door.'"--Michael Moore, "The American Journal of Distance Education"From the Publisher:
Is learning a natural ability that schools, colleges, and universities gradually stifle in individuals, replacing it with a learning dependency? Charles A. Wedemeyer stressed that learning is a natural, idiosyncratic, and continually renewable human trait and survival resource. It is not dependent upon teaching, schooling, or special environments, although--properly used--these resources enhance learning. "Learning at the Back Door" examines this kind of learning and relates it to schooling, suggesting ways in which all learning--whether traditional or non-traditional--can be encouraged and improved through new kinds of educational institutions and processes.
