About Learn Twice

Our Purpose

As Joseph Joubert affirmed, “to teach is to learn twice.” Exceptional teaching necessitates continuous learning of the “what” and the “how” of instruction.  Teachers spend much of their time mastering their understanding of their chosen field by researching theories and applications.  However, of equal importance, teachers must persistently learn how to guide students through the learning process. Teachers frequently seek out new examples, exercises, and methods that may be used to enhance learning in the classroom.  The purpose of Learn Twice is to assist in this effort of discovering and refining the “how” of teaching.    

Who We Serve

While the primary focus of Learn Twice is to support the members of the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business teaching and learning community, in a spirit of collaboration, we also hope that other business faculty may benefit from this resource.  The purpose of the Huntsman School of Business is to be an engine of growth for our community, the state, the nation, and the world, and to enable students to lead lives of meaning and contribution.  We welcome like-minded colleagues around the world to use and to contribute to the Learn Twice initiative.
