  1. A lot of wisdom. I was in education career since 1957 and have seen many new techniques, education reforms, teaching fads, new models, educational gurus, etc. The main result, usually is that for a while they seem to overshadow the underlying wisdom and the central importance of the personal relationship between the facilitator and the learner.
