Substance versus Style: A Teaching Controversy.
Simpson, Ronald D.
Innovative Higher Education, v15 n2 p103-07 Spr-Sum 1991
The viewpoint that a college teacher's knowledge of subject matter is sufficient for good teaching is criticized because it (1) suggests that the teaching process requires minimum commitment and effort; (2) fails to value appropriately the needs of students; and (3) connotes closed-mindedness, even arrogance, at odds with productive human interaction.
