Great Teachers Don't Teach

Great Teachers Don't Teach | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it
Blogger Ben Johnson outlines constructivist and experiential teaching techniques that go beyond direct instruction.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, October 6, 11:48 AM

"One characteristic of an effective teacher is that they don't teach. You say that is outrageous. How can an effective teacher teach without teaching?

 

My experience is that good teachers care about students. Good teachers know the content and know how to explain it. Good teachers expect and demand high levels of performance of students. Good teachers are great performers and storytellers that rivet their students' attention.

 

All of this is good but great teachers engineer learning experiences that maneuver the students into the driver's seat and then the teachers get out of the way. Students learn best by personally experiencing learning that is physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. John Dewey had it right in 1935 when he espoused his theories on experiential learning. Today we call this constructivism."

 

(...)

 

"The word "teacher" implies the flow of knowledge and skills from one person to another. Whether it be a lecture, or a power point, it involves talking at the students. While that is commonly viewed as the quickest and easiest way to impart knowledge and skills, we all realize that it is not the most effective. Socrates had it right when he only answered a question with more questions and look what he produced -- some of the greatest minds that ever lived. We call this the Socratic method.

 

Yes, there are times when direct instruction is necessary, but only to be able to do something with that knowledge or skill, but a great teacher devises learning experiences that force all the students to be engaged much like being in the deep end of the swimming pool. Then the lesson on arm and leg strokes becomes relevant. To learn, the students must do something. We call this performance-based learning."

 

(...)

 

"Returning to my original premise: great teachers do not teach. They stack the deck so that students have a reason to learn and in the process can't help but learn mainly by teaching themselves. This knowledge then becomes permanent and cherished rather than illusory and irrelevant."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 6, 2:23 PM
The objective is that good teachers create an environment where each student's learning can emerge. I don't think that means they don't teach. Gert Biesta uses John Dewey in his writing argues that teaching is relational. Having a strong grasp of content, being able to deliver it, caring for one's students, etc. each go into creating the environment where learning can emerge.

So the question is, what kind of cultural values do you want to have implicit in what you teach? We need to think of this - it’s a chance to break away from institutional cultures, which are not always good things.

Savez-vous que le coaching est l'une des 3 industries à plus forte croissance? Comme c'est déjà le cas aux États-Unis, en particulier dans la Silicon Valley, l'utilisation d'un autocar deviendra évidente dans les années à venir en Europe. Nous devons tous être accompagnés pour atteindre notre plein potentiel et épargner des années de frustration et de stress. Avec cette demande croissante, une opportunité de carrière rare est ouverte à ceux qui vont apprendre à devenir d'excellents coachs.
