The Difference that Inquiry Makes: Fostering a Scholarship of Teaching and a Culture of Learning

Bass spoke to a an audience of library and information science educators about how education is changing. He showed a video a student made on civil rights (content creation!) and discussed what learning came from it.

I finally had to say “Amen” at the end!

Educators should ask: “what happens if I try this a whole new way?”

We should be teaching for understanding.

Understanding = flexible performance capability

We should strive to educate flexible professionals.
