Episode 4 (Minicast): Four Beliefs that Impede Education


In this episode I share insights gained from my years teaching at the college level.  I outline four widely held beliefs that can interfere with learning.  The beliefs are:

  1. In thine 0wn self, the truth.
  2. Science is for nerds.
  3. Answers matter most.
  4. Numbers are mere exclamation points.

  1. Andrew, I think this piece is the most brilliant thing you’ve posted that I’ve listened to/read so far. You certainly hit the point about opinions, and how people are taught to perceive science as a product rather than a process. I personally think that religion conditions the brain against rational thinking and evidence as a base of knowledge.
