Thoughtful/Provocative Quotations from Tom Angelo:
  1. "If you're a teacher and worried primarily about whether your students are happy, then you shouldn't be  teaching." - Tom Angelo during online planning session 20140624
  2. “To ignore the research findings on effective teaching practice where those findings do exist – without evidence that one has a demonstrably better approach – should be regarded as professional misfeasance, malfeasance or nonfeasance.
  3. “Teaching without learning is just talking. But some talk is more entertaining than others.  And students, like most of us, would rather be entertained than bored.
  4. “The true effectiveness of teaching is best evaluated by what the students do when the teacher is not present.
  5. “A well designed course is a clever learning trap, from which students cannot escape without demonstrating they have mastered the intended learning outcomes at the required high standard.
  6. “The positive effects of most accreditation visits endure about as long as it takes the departing visiting team to reach the airport."
