Touchstone

 

Touchstone is the Journal of the Professor Magda Vasillov Center for Teaching and Learning. In linking the power of teaching to a broadening of our vision, Eugenio María de Hostos affirmed the power of education. In honor of our namesake’s belief, we have created Touchstone, a new journal devoted to the scholarship of teaching and learning and published yearly by the Magda Vasillov Center for Teaching and Learning.
