So, you've seen my photos then? Doh! I was trying to keep them out of the public domain.

Unlike you & SY (two lucky s**ts) I found it difficult to make my college fees as a male model while looking like this -had to get into porn movies instead - it has stunted my growth ever since!

Speaking of Multiple Choice Education...

One professor is trying to hammer a nail into the wall, capped forward. The second one says to him, "Hey, they have sold you the wrong nails, not for this wall!"

Yes, I agree..

Students need to be taught how to think...

Well we put in place Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs..

Educational Psychology Interactive: Maslow's hierarchy of needs

Then learning styles..

Overview of learning styles

Then use Transactual analysis..

Transactional analysis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Then the course work..then the Philosophy

What does 'I hear and I forget I see and I remember I do and I understand' mean

Then we twist everything to fit into funding requirements...and then have to forget everthing and get it done...Sheekh...become a lecturer its just ace honest..

Hey the problem is.... its just that most teachers care and thats the get out isn't it..some students don't...how many books are there on this subject...
You could save the trees except for the politics but thats another story..
Then of course there is the 30 years as a tech..but thats the icing on the cake..LOL

Regards
M. Gregg

I guess,

What I am saying is unless you know about "Education"..Its not about teaching..

Sorry what I mean to say is its about 90% hitting the boxes for the funding and the ever increasing "red tape" (how you should be teaching and methods)

The content is in (or should be in the lesson plans)..then there is the actual teaching which is based upon required methods and the "zing" that the tutor can muster in the lessons...this is a very different perspective than what you think you know about the lessons when you are actually sitting in one as a student..

OK i'll shut up now..

Regards
M. Gregg
