In a globalised world, mediocre teaching is doomed

Not sure exactly why I’m linking to this article…perhaps to highlight my own confusion about why anyone would suggest that the act of teaching is not worthy of study (i.e. it’s better to know something than to be skilled at creating learning spaces): In a globalised world, mediocre teaching is doomed: “By 2036, the forms of teacher preparation that currently prevail in Western nations will have sunk into oblivion. We will have discarded schools of education, the pedagogies they teach, and the certification apparatus that they serve. Such schools, pedagogies, and certifications have clung to life stubbornly for the better part of a century despite ample evidence of their unsuitability.”
