I was very pleased to read
At M.I.T., Large Lectures Are Going the Way of the Blackboard because it's high time we understood that education is about quality learning. The debate of education vs learning and student vs teacher centered instruction should have been resolved by now. Learning should be the focus of both instructor and learner as they engage in the learning-teaching-learning process. It should be a give and take situation where teachers and students interact and learn from each other. Teachers learn about student needs and best practices on how to make instruction conducive to learning for the specific students at hand and for future instructional learning improvements and students learn from interacting with the content, instructor, and each other. Learning is a collective process.
