Teaching is an ART. I truly believe that and it is through the slow ooze of experience, of classroom trial and error that one becomes a master teacher.
I'd like to share here, my own thoughts and ruminations on teaching, good teaching. I have many years experience and will leave some notes here for others who are following. Hopefully, after a few months, I'll collect for a nice presentation for beginning teachers.
The entries will be short, concise. Meant for others to think about , ponder and arrive at their own truth. Like a koan, like a parable, like an aphorism -- a thunderbolt of thought.
Great for courses/teacher development and training.
I read your comment and made a reply, then got ready for bed... but I felt like I had read too quickly, and was missing something important you were saying... I have been thinking about it some more, but I am still missing something... I need your help... can you explain more? Maybe an example of how you facilitate learning, or of creating ambiance?
