Quotes from the session:
  • Learning is done by the learner.
  • The person doing the talking is doing the learning.
  • Who’s doing the thinking?
  • Behavior is communication of an unmet need.
  • She’s not giving you a hard time, she’s having a hard time.

And the Pièce de résistance:

  • I used to do a lot of EXPLAINING..but now..I ask more QUESTIONS
  • I used to do a lot of TALKING..but not..I do much more LISTENING
  • I used to think about teaching CONTENT..but now..I think more about the learning of the STUDENT
