About Learn Twice
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.
