Stephan Schaffrath presented on Chaos Theory and Developmental Education at this year's annual conference of the Pennsylvania Association of Developmental Education in Pittsburgh.

The session included some background on Chaos Theory and related indeterminate and approximative constructs, such as Heraclitus' river, Bakhtin's heteroglossia, Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, and Derrida's Deconstruction. A lively discussion about how uncertainty, holisitic approaches, and little things often make big differences in our students' lives followed.
