I believe that in many ways teaching is often done the wrong way around: we talk and the student listens, and we hope something went in. A better approach is to let the student lead, but with the framework set by the tutor. We can then better explore the ideas that the student has, and base our discussion on their input. In short, I look to nurture creativity and the capacity for critical thinking. Facts matter, but they’re not the basis for my teaching, it’s flexibility in thinking and making links, then making judgements.
