not just what happens
Building a New Culture of Teaching and Learning
This dramatic "School Sucks" video (below) by Dr. Tae - skateboarder, videographer, teacher and scientist - takes on higher education, leadership, teaching, grading, math and science ed, the role of mentoring and other highly-charged topics in a fast moving twenty-seven minutes. Tae earned his Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Illinois and he can be found at the Physics of Skateboarding.
Let us know what you think. Here's a peak excerpt from the video:
Will teachers, administrators and schools allow "non-academics" to tread on their turf?
To allow others outside their class walls to teach what they know?
Could not agree more.
