On knowledge sharing and dissemination

... when circulating a working paper for comments, never put on "citations only permitted with the permission of author"

or "no parts of this paper can be used without permission of author". Rather, say "when using parts of this paper please give proper citation and help yourself". Be delighted if someone wants to quote you ... (p.7)

A learner's bill of rights ...

Every learner has the right to know why they are learning something, why it is important now,
or may be important to them someday.

Every learner has the right to engage in questioning or interrogating 
the idea of "importance" above.

Every learner has the right to be confused and to express this confusion
openly, honestly , and without shame.

Every learner has the right to multiple paths to understanding a concept, an idea, 
a set of facts, or a series of constructs.

Every learner has a right to understand his or her own mind, brain wiring, 
and intellectual inclinations as completely as possible.

Every learner has the right to interrogate and question the means 
through which her learning is assessed.

Every learner is entitled to some privacy in their imagination and thoughts.

Every learner has the right to take their own imagining and thinking seriously. 
(Olson 2009, p. inside cover)
