Learning to teach is often a private process, that we pursue on a public stage. In contrast with the way we
instruct fundamentals in our classrooms, or discover new knowledge in our laboratories, teaching is most
often learnt experientially with little to no scaffolding or focus on underlying theory. Is this really an
optimal approach to learning how to teach? Is there perhaps a better way?
In this talk, I will share some lessons I’ve learnt about teaching. Drawing from the courses that I’ve
designed and delivered, I’ll describe instructional strategies and digital tools I use to enhance learning and
integrate transdisciplinary competencies such as communication, teamwork, and professionalism. I will
share my views on where I see education headed and how we might adapt our teaching accordingly, for
the betterment of our students, professors, and institution.
