Teaching in the
In University, teachers' traditionally process curriculum and their teachers feedback through
the conventionally designed mental constructs: lecture, note-take, memorize, respond
to assessments. Although a prescription for a
fractional form of success--authentic learning
is an exploration of self, delving into the mysteries of the psyche and what motivates us
Homo-sapiens are known for their adaptability,
and those that are reflective and introspective
enough can self-learn by making mistakes. In
the digital epoch, in which we currently reside,
the role of teacher/learner takes on a much
greater significance. The geometrically accelerating tech advances requires a new sort of
person. One who can alter their direction and
shift to essential foreseeable learning domains
as they occur. Digital teaching and learning is
one such domain.
Teacher training, self-discovery, adaptability
is a matrix critical to the success of the Tech
Age teacher. Innovation in technology and the
expansion of broadband has cultivated, out of
necessity, an industry whereby students are
able to access teachers in the alternative virtual domain. Teaching and learning in such a
format creates new challenges and manifests
old ones. One that occurs to any teacher or
student in this new teaching paradigm--is the
notion of trust and integrity. Historically, the
scripted approaches of teaching in the highly
controlled and regulated direct instruction
environment are not easily transferred. The
presumption is that students will have time to
engage the curriculum thoughtfully, and with
integrity, and it is expected in this new format.
This teaching model, not coincidentally, reflects a constructivist instructional philosophy
at its core.
