RE: “New lessons in old things”

Congratulations to Prof. Bevan and to the Alumni Teaching Award itself. Bravo! I was glad to hear Bevan refer to his studies in his senior undergraduate years as a kind of apprenticeship. This seems to be an artful approach reminding me of working on a project in the lab of Seward R. Brown as part of my Honours BSc in Biology. Apprenticeship, indeed. Prof. Brown recently passed away. He, too, was a much admired teacher.
