MY TEACHING STYLE

Early in my teaching I set the rather idealistic goal that I would never intentionally teach a lesson that I would not also wish to experience as a student.
The teaching techniques that always appeal to me most are those which stimulate a student's natural inclination to work things out for themselves and thus I reserve a special place for parables, simulations, games, modelling, group work and the long neglected power of the Socratic dialogue.
The best education should last a lifetime - but the journey begins when the mind is awakened.
