E-learning folks and others – the article referenced (heavily) in this post was written by Christa Walck in 1997. MaryEllen Weimer identifies it as “one of a very few pedagogical articles worth re-reading.” I went out and found the article, and I heartily agree!
Maryellen Weimer is the head of the umbrella organization that runs “The Teaching Professor” newsletter we circulate, author of a number of books that have been at the center of higher-ed conversations on teaching – including “Learner Centered Teaching” fairly recently. Her praise is no small compliment.
Kudos to Christa for this work, which is not only being recognized as excellent, but also has such staying power!
