Today I’ve been thinking about teaching and design. How do I design better teaching? Or is that even the best question to ask?
I can get into the theoretical and the aspects of formal instructional design if I wish. I can also look at what people want to know and learn. I can also develop interactive modules, social contexts for people to talk and share their understanding.
With this though comes the need to make a safe space where people can let themselves be vulnerable in the sharing. They need to know that their limited knowledge is ok and that we’re all in this together – this learning space.
An education isn’t how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you know. It’s being able to differentiate between what you know and what you don’t. – Anatole France
