The Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning

Editor's Message

Editor's Message

This is the last issue of my three-year term as inaugural editor of the Journal of the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning.

There is something fine for me in starting something from nothing, so to speak. What is it about the mystery, doing the truly active research that does not require a library or the internet?
