Robert Heiny Authority for a Learners' View (ALV) of Learning Authority for a learners' view (ALV) of learning rests in results of experimental behavioral and social science research results. That statement alone does not address questions raised by readers unfamiliar with technical-scientific definitions of those words. They have asked for proof, challenged that science works as a form of self-fulfilling prophesy, and anyway, it's just another theory assembled by cherry-picking so called scientific research. This post addresses these issues. Does the statement of authority for and of ALV make sense to you?
