‘What the Best College Teachers Do’ Author's Keynote ODU Address Available for Viewing

At last May's Faculty Summer Institute on Teaching and Learning, Ken Bain, historian, educator and author of the international bestseller "What the Best College Teachers Do" (Harvard University Press, 2004), delivered a thought-provoking keynote address titled "Learning By Design: How to Foster Deep Learning."

The nearly 150 Institute participants saluted Bain's interactive approach to both his lecture and his style of teaching and learning. He encourages teachers to "find the question" that their students most want answered. That question, he says, will engage them and will make them want to learn.

Bain's thoughtful and inspirational keynote address is now available for viewing on the Center for Learning and Teaching's website at http://clt.odu.edu/si/2013/keynote/.
