Professors Also Need to be Students

Jason Fertig

When you spend the bulk of your time driving, it's easy to forget how the car looks from the passenger seat.

Aside from covering content that I should have known already, one of the joys from taking Hillsdale's Constitution 101 course is I get to see a class from an angle that I haven't seen in a while.  When the course is over, I plan on doing a full write-up of my experience.  

For now, I encourage teachers to find areas to be students.  Whether a yoga class or something more formal, that experience will do more for your teaching ability than reading the latest pedagocial theory.
