Principles of Better Teaching

A few days ago I took a half-day class in a new technology. The instructors presented some excellent material but fell short in other areas. During suboptimal segments I thought about how the course could have been taught better.

(cf. Riot Act point #5, "The Professional is not a Passive Learner" (2010-07-07) for thoughts on how the student can optimize learning) - ^z - 2012-09-14
