- Assume a Spherical Cow: An Examination of Four Implicit Learning and Teaching Assumptions

Teaching and learning are complementary processes that are most effective when teachers and
students employ compatible methods and when their goals are aligned. Four "spherical cows,"
metaphors for implicit assumptions made about key teaching and learning concepts, are explored.
Explicit conceptualizations, drawn from selected research and theory and based on the
understanding that knowledge is internally constructed and individually organized, are
presented for each assumption. The conceptualizations support compatible teaching and learning
methods and promote an effective partnership.

The Brinkerhoff Family
The Brinkerhoff coat of arms was granted to the family in Drenthe, Holland, in
1307, along with knighthood and patrician rank. The translation of the family
motto from Latin reads, "Constant in Faith and Integrity."
Joris Dircksen Brinkerhoff came to the American colonies (later the United States of America)
in 1641 from Vorden, Gelderland, Holland, where he was born in 1604.
