How Do You Learn? Tell Me What You Think
Teaching is my part-time job, but it is one, for the time being, through which I get to express passion. I love doing it and base my approach on the fact that while I am the captain of the ship, it is populated with paying customers.
An education at Georgetown is not cheap and every single one of the students whom I have taught either at Georgetown or at the University of Maryland (my alma mater) has heard the same refrain from me:
You are my customers.
If you are not getting the service that you want and need, we need to adjust. Sometimes, it is you, sometimes it is me. So when I came across this amazing diagram on the Social Reformer’s site, How Students Learn, I could think of no better test. And the cool part of this is that a) you get to offer feedback on the blog, and b) you also get to “…click your position and then describe, in 140 characters or less, how this quality of the native information experience might be leveraged inside the classroom (classwork, projects, homework, assessment, grading, etc.),” in effect, participating in a larger experiment.
So my Georgetown pals, past and present, have a look – and tell me what you think.
P.S. – Sorry for the incomplete image above, but even when I maximized my screen resolution, I could not capture the entire page. So clicking on the image or any of the links in the post will get you the whole enchilada.
