|"...how different are professors' conceptions of college teaching and how difficult is this act of communicating about it. Teaching is not just apples and oranges; basic approaches to teaching seem to constitute a complex fruit salad, with a variety of nuts thrown in for richness. One professor sees teaching as the dissemination of knowledge; another sees it as the facilitation of learning. One professor construes teaching as focusing on teacher performance; another construes it as focusing on student performance. Even though we know that not everyone sees the world in the same way that we do, often we talk to each other about teaching as if we all mean the same thing by it." Broadley, et al.|
