Observations from an old white guy:

Appreciate your comment — also my mind fixated on this:

“[T]hese professors are just people who happen to have more experience as well as knowledge in some narrow area, and that student and teacher can learn together and from each other.”

I would add that hopefully these processors have some skill at teaching — which does not come automatically with expertise at a given topic, and sadly many institutions of higher learning do not bother to provide and/or require any kind of courses to professors on how to teach. A K-12 teacher has to get a 4-year or 2-year degree in the skills to teach, but college and university professors do not.

Like what you read? Give Rebecca Huffman a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
