Abstract:

Good microbiologists question assumptions. How about the assumption that semesters are the best calendars for learning? What would happen if rather than taking four courses concurrently during a semester, students instead took those four courses successively, one at a time? This describes the Colorado College “block plan” (http://bit.ly/1kbdkQh), first implemented in 1970. We teach every undergraduate course, from Arabic to Zoology, in periods of 3.5 weeks.
