This keynote talk was given by ICASP project director Ajay Heble at the Association of Atlantic Universities Teaching Showcase Conference, at the University of Prince Edward Island in September 2010. Inspired by the philosophies of Sun Ra, Heble focuses on the need to create structures in the college and university classroom that encourage broader forms of community-based learning and involvement. Further, Heble asserts the importance of strengthening the relationships between those working and learning within and beyond traditional educational institutions.
