“Only awareness is educable", as Gattengo says. Education, at its core, is about nurturing self-awareness. Teachers simply provide a conscious act that there is something new to be explored. Once a student becomes aware of something and integrates it into their existence, it becomes second nature.

My kid’s rural high school hasn’t been able to get a language teacher, and so every year group is doing this Positive Behaviour Support class instead once a week (and I think two health lessons instead of one, if the language would normally be two lessons a week).

Thing is:
He’s already done the PBS lessons in primary school, plus they cover it in Form every morning.
He’s not one of the kids who needs to have positive behaviour explained to him at length, repeatedly (the kids who do need it don’t exactly benefit from sitting through a lesson a week either tbh).
He’s one of two students at the school already doing online learning for some classes.
Plus doing language learning in his own time after school.
We’d rather he spent that hour more productively and would be happy to arrange an online class for him or support him in an independent learning project.
Principal is pretty damn defensive.

Is there any chance of getting him exempted from this class on the grounds he is proven to be capable of independent online learning and offering a course of study?

And if so, how best to broach it without getting the principal’s back up?

(No shade on the school or the teachers, I know it’s a tough job, but this particular class just feels like a complete waste of time)

It's pretty low tech, with cheap dissecting scopes and microscopes, and it works pretty well. Anyway students realized years ago that one can take pictures with a smartphone directly on the eyepiece. Now one student even made a time lapse movie of the first division and put it on youtube. Made my day. #teaching #genetics #CellBiology #CellDivision

Since we're on the subject of #academia, #teaching, and the consumerization of #HigherEd, I offer you this delightful and prophetic little passage from Iain Pears, Death and Restoration. A Jonathan Argyll Mystery (1996)

Add these terms to your vocabulary:

• "group interaction module"' (wait , we already have something pretty close to that)

• "factualities"
(this one's a keeper, though)

Argyll’s lecture, a moronically simple canter through the more ostentatious church commissions of the 17th century, had gone tolerably well, so he thought. That is to say, there had been 40 people in the room when he started, and still more than 20 when he’d ended. Such wastage would have alarmed him, but his head of department assured him that it was pretty good, considering. Considering what? he’d asked. Considering that it was a morning lecture....Not early risers, these people. As they, or their parents, were paying a fortune, they generally imagined that a lectures should be scheduled for their convenience. Just as they seemed to think that the level of grade should vary in direct proportion to the size of the fees

‘And,’ this wiseacre continued. ‘You didn’t show many pic- tures. Risky. They like looking at pictures. You don’t show pictures, they’ve not got anything to do. Except listen, and i

- think. And lectures. Dear me. A bit authoritarian, you know? | Don’t you think a group interaction module might be better?”

‘What’s that?’

‘It's where you break down hierarchy. They teach them- selves.’

. ‘But they don’t know anything,” Argyll protested. ‘How can you teach yourself if you don’t know anything to start off with?’

‘Ah. You've spotted the snag. However, that one is easily solved. You are confusing knowledge with creativity. You are meant to be encouraging their self-expression. Not stifling it by the imposition of factualities over which you deny them control.’

I'm currently trying to work with my TA and the teaching coordinators to figure out when and where best to schedule my Introduction to Quantum Physics lecture course next academic year.

It's a rather fun game of 3D chess: I want a room that has space, which feels welcoming, and ideally has student group working space outside or in the vicinity. I also want to be able to have all the contact teaching on two or at most three days so students don't have to come in every day. And it's also good if the teaching is at a time when students are available, without clashes.

I really love this part of the job – thinking in advance about what is best for students. ❤️

input ≠ intake

What amazes me again and again in #teaching is that a considerable number of teachers firmly believes "input = intake", i.e., teacher's input equals student's intake and then argue along the lines of "... but I told them!" This is so fundamentally and inherently wrong.

As an academic teacher who loves teaching and who keeps thinking about teaching, I have one author to whom I will always go back, and that is John Dewey.

Dewey understands the dialogical nature of teaching, and he speaks about it in a way that enables the reader to think freely and openly about the process of education.

Thank you, Project Gutenberg, for making his writing available, and thank you for your presence here on Mastodon!

After being on the job market for close to 3 months now, it's with a sigh of relief and a rush of excitement I can finally see the full-time occupation of doing job interviews to an end.

Starting gently now in June, and full-time in September, I'm joining Ludenso as VP of Platform Engineering!

It's been a wild and educational ride, and I've met with so many interesting companies, but in the end, I chose to go with Ludenso for the ability it gives me to improve the fields of teaching and learning – especially in the classroom. Having a daughter who says she hates school is naturally a strong, personal motivation.

It's been a long time since I was as enthusiastic about work as I am now. I'm eagerly looking forward to the adventure this surely is going to be!

I’m excited to announce my new book, Anarchist Atheist Punk Rock Teacher is now available to pre-order everywhere:

Out June 16th on Earth Island Books, as the blurb says: it’s a memoir exploring the various ways in which anarchist philosophy, atheism, and a background in DIY punk rock influenced one conflicted teacher's approach to the classroom over twelve turbulent and thought-provoking years.

‘Anarchist Atheist Punk Rock Teacher' is more than just a memoir of some teacher you've never met. It is philosophy of education, of anarchism, of authenticity, and of life. Throw in some personal history, the deaths of both of his parents to deal with on top of juggling all the professional absurdities that come with the job (not to mention having to teach through a global pandemic), and you have all the earmarks of a biographical classic.

Sharing frontline insights which help explain why currently one in three teachers in England plan on quitting the profession, and the first-hand experience of being one of those very statistics, this memoir of struggle, grief, philosophy and hope tells a story of why, despite all its endless frustrations and inherent contradictions, there still might be no better job in the world than being an 'Anarchist Atheist Punk Rock Teacher'.

@ConatusPrinciple I haven't gotten through Capital yet, but from what I have read of Marx, as a teacher, you are involved in the "social reproduction" of society, by virtue of preparing the society's newest members for participation in said society, particularly in the economy. Social reproduction is a necessary component of every mode of production; without it, the society eventually ceases to exist.

So I would assume that, by *default* at least, anything falling under the umbrella of social reproduction is "productive labour," unless some sort of exception is argued for.

For summer class prep, I've been updating my CS 200 programming exercises so that they're designed for a group of 2-3 students. To do this, each program in an exercise has a version A, B, and C, and each student will tackle one of em - that way, if one student goes MIA, their lack of work won't affect the others.

This also means that the exercises need to cover the same stuff but different programs.

Since it’s teaching eval season again, just a reminder that numerous studies have shown that these evals measure bias, not teaching effectiveness. Their use in for anything beyond feedback directly to the prof—ie tenure & promotion—is legally dubious, professionally irresponsible, and ethically wrong.

So, read yours with a glass of wine and a whole shaker of salt. Solidarity to all the women out there who get comments on being motherly or mean, well-dressed or unattractive, too challenging or a push-over.

In that thread I articulated some observations on why discussing #teaching and #learning can be hard:

"It can be hard to accurately remember the experience of not having a skill... what your mental models were, what perceptual gaps you have since fixed...

...people will use different words to describe the same experience, or will have divergent conscious memories..."

"People don't learn like that!" often means "I have no conscious recollection of learning that way."
