Debates about education are by no means new: What’s the best way to teach? What’s the best way to learn? What should the curriculum be? Who should have access to specialized knowledge and specialized training? How does technology impact all of these questions?
As a recently graduated academian, I’ve learned to appreciate theory and practices a little bit. When I studied hypertext theory, little did I know that I’d actually be preaching it to a manager about how the logic of a particular website wasn’t working. We don’t all have to know all of educational theory, but to be responsible educators, we should at least have some inkling of what it’s about and how it affects learners.
