Teri Balser on current state of higher education: “the problem isn’t one of motivation, but of misalignment”
Reeteka Sud

The question of "how to motivate students" is not a trivial one to answer. In a workshop she conducted at NCBS, Bangalore in Feb 2016, Teri Balser (Dean of Teaching and Learning for the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Curtin University, Perth, Australia) put this question to teachers: how would you teach if you thought your students actually wanted to learn? 

Teri will be at NCBS next month (June 2017). Contact us if you would like to participate in her workshop.
