Professors: Don’t Think About Teaching Without Thinking About Learning

Excerpt:

Think about learning – In this case I’m not referring to student learning, but learning about teaching. I have talked with teachers who admit they don’t do any pedagogical reading and others who don’t do any professional development activities. How can you expect to stay instructionally alive and well when you’re not taking actions that promote health? It’s not about needing to improve; it’s about wanting to grow. It’s about taking our love of learning and tackling teaching as a subject to be mastered, a skill to be developed. Teaching is less a gift and more skillful knowledge that teachers have set about learning.
