Telling is Not Teaching – The Flight Instructor’s Handbook by Mike Thompson 88 pages
True teaching grows out of the development of a student-teacher relationship. This fact, central to educational psychology, is sometimes forgotten by flight instructors, who increasingly rely on electronic media for instruction. We tell, we show, but we rarely teach–and in failing to do so, we do our students a disservice.
Join veteran flight instructor Mike Thompson as he reveals how instructors and students alike benefit from the application of simple principles of educational psychology. Not just for flight instructors, Thompsons’ advice will help any educator make the shift from telling to encouraging deep learning.
