Robert Reich: Teaching how to teach

To kick off the academic year, invest 40 minutes to learn from former Secretary of Labor and U.C. Berkeley’s own Robert Reich, who in this insightful and humorous reflection on the experiences, opportunities, and obligations of a graduate student instructor/teaching assistant, illustrates why education is the ultimate human enterprise. The video can be watched by clicking here.

All members of our collective learning community — not just GSIs/TAs, and maybe especially undergraduate students — will benefit from musing on his commentary.

Play, think…
