The following reading also discusses the subject of effective education, though the author’s focus and approaches may differ somewhat from Schlect’s. This is not meant to dismiss his lecture, but to encourage a healthy comparison (and perhaps even a blend) of multiple perspectives. Some of the reading’s key points align with Schlect’s, others are more oriented around technical aspects of teaching which the lecture did not cover. The condensed outline should help delineate where Schlect stands relative to these variations.
