What has become ever clearer to me is that we need to think of teaching more in terms of student learning than in terms of professors’/educators’ teaching. One can teach and teach, but do the students learn?
Important questions we need to ask ourselves:
What do they learn?
How do they integrate that learning with all they know and have experienced before?
How does it affect them?
To what action does it (not) prompt them?
How does it affect their outlook on the world?
How does it help them become skilled in some way or other, and do they contextualize that skill, i.e. think about the wider social, human, environmental, ethical implications of the actions to which they put that skill?
