"Can Teaching Really Matter?"

"Can Teaching Really Matter?"

Peter B Lawler, ”Academic Questions“ A Publication of The National Association of Scholars Winter 2011 Vol. 24 No. 4 pp. 480-488.

“Legendary teachers are more than interdisciplinary. They have enough confidence in their own ideas to say what they believe, not what an academic discipline demanded.” In that sense, such teachers have no discipline; they refuse to submit to any discipline’s discipline. Neither do they think of themselves as the source of some “creeping enterprise”, but locate themselves within the context of the great tradition of moral and political thought. (NB. I taught history of political philosophy). They certainly don’t think that technology or productivity or citizenship should define what they think and do -- and they didn’t think that techno-change had obliterated or transformed the fundamentally human or existential question”.

BestThinking to be Updated this Weekend

If all goes well you will see a change in the layout of BestThinking's Home and Category pages. Topics & Articles and Blogs & Books will no longer be shown in two separate columns.

All 4 content types (Articles, Blogs, Books, and Topics) will be Featured Content together as one continuous stream, although the column structure - one wide and one narrow - will remain the same. The first (wide) column will now flow into the second (narrow) column. This change is in response to Blogs becoming as important a content type as Articles and Topics. This will also give Featured Content more time on the Home page which is helpful regarding search engines indexing this content.
