Professor: What I’ve learned about online teaching

As I’m about to begin a new semester online at Middlebury College, I’m reminded of James A. Garfield’s comment that “the ideal college is Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other.” Hopkins was a philosopher (and later president) at Williams College, and he was a legendary teacher. This has always been my mantra: a teacher, a student and a log. That’s all you really need for education to happen.
