Here's what I learned during the very first class of my Masters of Education program...
That it should be the primary job of my professors, whom all hold doctorates in their field, to "Teach me a LOVE of Learning". Contrary to the popularly held belief that it is a professor's job to impart knowledge on me which only those who have done a cajillion years of schooling know.
Makes sense, right? Especially in this information age - where much knowledge is literally at our fingertips. It's an interesting thought and one that I'd like to talk to faculty members about. Is our job as educators to impart wisdom or to teach students to find accurate information, synthesize that information, and question that information?
