“The world does not respect mediocrity, it respects only excellence.” This truism was posted by Professor Kenneth Alan Brown of Washington State, USA, when he challenged his listeners during his lecture on “Asynchronous and Synchronous Trends in Teaching.”
Brown was guest and lecturer in the seminar hosted by the Department of Professional Education (DPRE) of the College of Education. The seminar held last October 21, 2010 at the CED Amphitheater was a venue to enhance the knowledge and skills of CED faculty members and teacher education students.
A Principal at Leaders in Learning High School in Monroe, Washington State, USA, he has taught elementary, secondary, and university students for 30 years.
Brown demonstrated the use of movements to draw the attention of students and brain exercises to prepare for and better remember a lesson.
