TEDxUBC - Paul Cubbon - Engagement: the un-lecture
Paul Cubbon, UBC professor in the Faculty of Commerce, and architect of the "un-lecture" on why students are not engaged in their classes ... "Because they're bored."
In one of my favorite presentations at TEDxUBC, Cubbon encourages educators to challenge the status quo, focus on the students and develop mashups.
It's great to see new approaches applied to higher education.
