Teaching is Not Learning

Teaching is Not Learning

Many who teach feel they have done their job by “covering all material”. But have students learned? In reality, have we done anything that a good book or video sequence could not have done in our place? Observing that “teaching is not learning”, the lecture points out the limitations of traditional approaches, establishes the real value that an instructor can add, and provides strategies that will help students learn.
