Anyone remember the Guido Sarducci five minute university skit? Father Sarducci offers a five-minute version of what people learn in college and proposes that we might as well learn this version because it is what we remember anyway.
For some reason, the Crash Course in Learning Theory post offered at Creating Passionate Users brought that Sarducci skit to mind. Read this post – it offers a summary of “principles” for educators. Would I offer this in place of my course? No, but I would hope my students remember some of these ideas.
