Summary: Teaching is not learning
L = I Many of us who teach students often feel they have
done their job when they have "covered all material":
as lecturers, when they have said everything once;
as TAs, when they have provided a solution to all
the assigned exercises. But have students learned?
In fact, have we done anything that a good book
or video sequence could not have done in our place?
Observing that "teaching is not learning", the lecture
will show the limitations of traditional approaches,
establish the potential value added by an instructor,
and provide strategies that will help students learn.
