Oversold and underused?

Block 3, Week 17, Activity 4: Cuban (2001)

1. What access to technology did the students and professors have at Stanford?

A vast array of technology.  I think the key point that Cuban makes is the fact that teachers are not averse to using technology, just that they use it very little in their teaching. This might not have anything to do with their own competence; it may simply be because they don’t see the pedagogical value? Likewise students are not averse to using technology to support their studies but again, they perhaps don’t see the value of using technology in the delivery of the materials.

2. What kinds of teaching does Cuban describe?

Lectures, small groups (tutorials?), case studies, role-playing, and debates.

3. Do you believe this kind of teaching is reflective of teaching in university today (either in general or related to your own experience)?

Very much so; variety is the key and they are all effective in their own ways so I doubt little has changed in methods of presentation over the last 15 – 20 years.
