Session Description:

On the shoulders of mortals is about how we teach and how we learn. Many different styles of teaching are described in this presentation, illustrated by real-life great teachers and caricatures of bad teachers.



  1. Recognize your own style of teaching
  2. Is there a way I could be a more effective teacher?
  3. What is the common denominator of all good teaching?
