  38. 38. “To teach is to learn twice.” - Joseph Joubert What will you and your students “learn twice” together?
  39. 39. Dan Pink’s DRIVE (cocktail party summary, part I) “When it comes to motivation, there’s a gap between what science knows and what business education does. Our current business school operating system– which is built around external, carrot-and-stick motivators–doesn’t work and often does harm. We need an upgrade. And the science shows the way. “ changes in red by @lottascales
  40. 40. Dan Pink’s DRIVE (cocktail party summary, part II) “This new approach has three essential elements: 1. Autonomy – the desire to direct our own lives. 2. Mastery – the urge to get better and better at something that matters. 3. Purpose – the yearning to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves.”
