Dance Lessons, Anyone?

The modest proposal of having students help teachers learn to dance makes an interesting point. Suggesting the learners do not want to learn is an easy way to avoid the real problem.

I hear from higher education faculty, students are unmotivated and fail to see the importance of learning. I hear from academic technical support at the campuses my project supports, faculty members are unmotivated and fail to see the importance of technology.

Certainly, I ought not allow myself to think of students as unwilling to learn, faculty members unwilling to use technology, and academic technical support unwilling to help the faculty. Empathy is one of those right brain skills I should be using.
