To Learn to Teach, Be a Student
Calogero, Caroline
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n10 pB34 Oct 2008
Professors are professional learners. Research, inquiry, and discussion among colleagues all serve to broaden their knowledge. But even experienced teachers can benefit from becoming actual students in a classroom. There is nothing like sitting in a classroom facing the board and scrambling to translate someone else's lecture into coherent notes, rather than just decanting one's own ideas into scribbles, to crystallize the challenges that students face. In this article, the author shares the lessons she learned when she became a student again.
