‘If I need to, say, fix my bicycle, I can find instructional videos on how to do so on the net. It’s pretty funny that university teaching still largely leans on the lecture-based model developed a thousand years ago in Bologna. At Aalto, I’m involved in developing a solution that will help transform some teaching into a form more suitable for the video generation.
A large part of basic teaching should, in my opinion, fit into a student’s pocket and be accessible 24/7. This would also leave teachers with more time and resources for teaching scenarios in which encounters between different people and group dynamics support learning.’
