Paradox

A guy at the faculty senate meeting, a business professor, speaking to real college professors about how to teach better, put up power point slides and explained them in a sleep-inducing way. He advocated "flipping" and "hybrids," but he himself just lectured us and showed us the damned slides. Eventually, the room erupted. He lost us and the group just started raising objections for the next 15 minutes. Paradoxically, we were already doing what he was telling us to do, and in fact, were better at it than him. He was way out of his league. My students earlier in the day had better pp slides.

Así es. Those who cannot teach, lecture via PP (which they call "technology") about flipping.
