Stephen Brookfield shares about his book, The Skillful Teacher, on today's episode of Teaching in Higher Ed.
I think I internalized early in my career that my job was to talk, to profess. And that if I wasn’t talking, then I really wasn’t earning my money. I still feel that, and I fight against it constantly.
Skillful teaching is whatever helps students learn.
College students of any age should be treated as adults.
Teachers need a constant awareness of how students are experiencing their learning and perceiving teachers’ actions.
