Teaching & Learning / Lectures & Seminars
Given the rapid transformation of media, I mentioned to the dean at NYU a football (soccer) metaphor for teaching. I said that just as one kicks the ball downfield to where a player will be, and not to where he was, so too one has to teach so that when a student graduates he or she is comfortable in that future, not stuck in what has become the past. You’re wrong, she said, you have to reinvent the game.
