If you are a regular around here, you'll remember that I co-host a weekly podcast on science and teaching called "Horizontal Transfer". Last week was our tenth episode, and that seems like an arbitrarily significant milestone in the land of hairless, 10-fingered, apes, so I thought I'd write this post.
So far, we've discussed:
- What good teaching looks like.
- The "future" of education.
- Grades and their uses.
- Jargon in education.
- "Bad teachers".
- Dream schools.
- How students learn science.
- Lack of choices in traditional public schools.
- Ways to improve teacher quality.
- Public distrust of science.
Not a bad list for the first 10 episodes. We've enjoyed making them, and lots of folks seem to enjoy listening to them. New episodes are posted every Thursday. If you haven't checked it out yet, please do, and let us know what you think.
