Higher Education Is Odd

Higher education is odd in that we don’t typically teach teachers how to teach, students how to learn, or administrators how to lead. As a result, more than a few students end up with methods that are ineffective or even an impediment to learning.

Todd Zakrajek, as quoted by Jeannie Loeb, in her preface to The New Science of Learning

Let’s hope that this is increasingly less true for instruction librarians!
