Sleep on it 2

There is so much that we know and do not know about sleep. The sleep expert in the video above outlined what he knew to five learners at different levels of understanding.

As much as I like to say that “teaching is not learning” (i.e., teaching does not guarantee learning), I also recognise that teaching is a function of learning. Clear explanations are helpful, but only if the teacher can quickly evaluate what a learner is capable of understanding in a short time.

Some might point out that the expert only seemed to ask his learners what they understood after their chats. They might not have noticed how he asked questions and chatted with each person before engaging in dialogues.

Evaluations of learners should come first, not the delivery of information devoid of context or need. Think about that. Sleep on that.
