Cognitive scientist Daniel Willingham has another answer.
This from the Answer Sheet:
Daniel Willingham delves into the true nature of teaching and, in the video below, answers the question: “Is teaching a science or an art?”
Even if the answer seems obvious to you, the video will teach you something nonethless. Willingham is a psychology professor at the University of Virginia and author of “Why Don’t Students Like School?” (The answer, by the way, isn’t as simple as you think. Willingham explains here.)
His next book, “When Can You Trust The Experts? How to tell good science from bad in education,” will be published in July.
Willingham has made a number of what he calls “garage-band quality” videos. This one was posted on his new Science and Education blog.
